Get involved with your community
Leeds has one of the largest student populations in the UK. If you're moving to Leeds, then you might want to know more about safety, sustainability and how to get involved.
Whether you are living in Headingley, Hyde Park, Burley Park, Woodhouse or somewhere further afield, you will be living amongst a culturally, economically and socially diverse community. Your neighbours might be families, retired people, professionals and students.
As a member of this community, you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the place where you live, so introduce yourself and spare a thought for your neighbours next time you're inviting your friends over.
There are many things for you to think about and remember - from knowing when your bin days are and how to keep your property secure, to getting to know the community you'll be calling home.
