Campus protest update

You may be aware that a small group of students are currently occupying the green space opposite the Leeds University Union building to protest against the conflict in Israel and Gaza. The surrounding area remains open.

A team of colleagues from the University and LUU are monitoring the situation to ensure the safety of participants, maintain effective dialogue and uphold the right to freedom of expression, while also working to minimise disruption for students, staff and visitors to our campus.

We know that many in our community are distressed and directly impacted by the ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza, and we will continue to do more to support our students, act to protect the cohesion of our community and tackle hatred wherever it is found. You can read our message of support for all in our community.
