Leeds&You Events

Come along to our Leeds & You events and activities which we will be running throughout the year, to meet new people in a relaxed and informal setting.

Our student-led events and activities will help you meet other students and postgraduate researchers, while taking part in activities on and off campus.

Join our events on your own or bring your friends along. Our student hosts will be there to support you and make sure that you feel welcome. The majority of our Leeds&You events are free.

Student-centred services at the University of Leeds

Would you like to contribute to research that aims to improve the front-line services available to students? Can you help the University understand how students want to access information and support?

A survey is being undertaken by fellows of the Leeds Institute of Teaching Excellence, Claire Flegg and Jessica Christie as part of a project to develop student-centred services that meet students’ needs and expectations and support students to succeed.

  • The survey takes around 30 minutes and participants are entered into a draw to win one of six £50 Amazon prizes. 

  • The survey is anonymous and you could help to support the development of services to help students and PGRs access information and support.

Student Conversations on Welcome and Belonging Workshop

We are recruiting students to share their opinions on how successful they believe the University of Leeds are at creating a sense of welcome and belonging for all student cohorts.

The workshop we are running will be a relaxed environment, where participants can share their experiences and be a part of creating new ideas based on improving how this sense of belonging can be achieved for students. The Student Welcome Team can take these ideas forward when planning their year-round welcome approach, shaping the activities we plan to run in the future.

  • The workshop will take place on Friday 5 May from 10:00-13:00 at the University of Leeds (exact location will be confirmed soon). If you are interested 

  • Participants will receive a £30 voucher in recognition of their contribution to the workshop.

  • Register your interest for the workshop.

If you have any queries or would like any further information, please contact Rachel Jones or alternatively the Student Welcome Team on leedsandyou@leeds.ac.uk.
