Our Student Map of Leeds shows off just some of the great student-friendly spots in Leeds nominated by our Students’ Union. Scroll down the page to view a Google Map of the locations.

Mog's Café

‘A new café and takeaway in Kirkstall, delivering all over the city. Everything on the menu can be made vegan, veggie or with meat so it suits all lifestyles. I warn you though, it’s very addictive.’

Jack Harrison, Students’ Union President 


A fantastic Indian restaurant by the Canal, Mumtaz is a go-to place in Leeds. The fancy décor is matched by amazing food, and the Queen even went there!

Charlie Hind, Vice President Education

Out of This World

My favourite place to grab quick food - the deli counter has an amazing selection with gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. My go-to is the sage and mushroom sausage roll with a chocolate and orange tiffin.

Jack Harrison, Students’ Union President

Ecco Pizzeria

‘One of the best pizza places in Leeds. This pizzeria offers normal 12” pizzas as well as massive, half metre pizzas to share between two people. A great, easy choice when the parents are visiting for the weekend.’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

Trinity Kitchen

‘There are a huge number of options to choose from, whether you want something fried and delicious or fresh and healthy. I usually get burritos from Tortilla - they're freshly made and you don't have to pay extra for guacamole if you are veggie (important).’

Ro Sewell, VP Equality & Diversity

Caracas Grill

This Venezuelan restaurant hidden away in a basement serves amazing food. If you like South American food, Caracas Grill is a must go.

Charlie Hind, Vice President Education

R.K. Harris & Sons

‘R.K. Harris & Sons greengrocers on North Lane in Headingley is really good for cheap, fresh, good quality fruit and veg shopping.’

Ro Sewell, VP Equality & Diversity

Smokin' Bar & Kitchen

Located on The Headrow, Smokin’ offers classy décor and a high-end dining experience. A perfect place for date night.

Jess Carrier, Vice President Welfare & Community


‘A good takeaway/café for burgers, pizzas and Moroccan food. They do great vegan and veggie options and the staff are usually really friendly.’

Ro Sewell, VP Equality & Diversity



‘What more can I say than this is the starting point of the infamous Otley run?!’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

Original Oak

‘It has a really big beer garden with TV screens so you can watch sports games whilst having a drink with friends.’

Jack Harrison, Students’ Union President

Whites café

'A Great Versatile café which serves a range of healthy brunch options and sandwiches during the day as well as cocktails in the evening.'

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activites

The Abbey Inn

A great little pub along the canal, it’s a bit out of the way but if you like to walk and have a pint then I would definitely go have a look. It has a great atmosphere and hosts live music from time to time which turns the place into a lively hub of merriness.

Jack Harrison, Students’ Union President


‘This rooftop terrace and bar located in Trinity is the most scenic place in Leeds. The cocktails are stupendous (but will set you back a bit of money). However, it’s worth it for the scenery when the student loan hits and it's ideal for a first date.’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

Water Lane Boathouse

Charmingly located by the canal, Water Lane Boathouse offers a great selection of drinks, with great views of the canal and Leeds’ business district.

Charlie Hind, VP Education

Roxy Ball Room

This is the perfect place to go with friends either after uni or for a night out - with table tennis, beer pong and pool (just to name a few) alongside cheap food and drink deals, you can’t go wrong.

Jess Carrier, VP Welfare and Community

Call Lane

‘This strip of popular bars is always lively. Call Lane Social and Revs de Cuba are a couple of my favourites. Great for a bar crawl and a busy night without the clubbing vibe.’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities


Dry Dock

‘My favourite place to hang out is Dry Dock, a boat-shaped pub located just outside City Campus. It has a relaxed and chilled atmosphere and good food for cheap prices.’

Jack Harrison, Students’ Union President

The Botanist

‘Head here if you want some fancy, fresh cocktails. The atmosphere is lovely, it's decorated beautifully and they usually have someone playing acoustic music. The cocktails are on the more expensive side, but I feel like you get your money's worth.’

Ro Sewell, VP Equality & Diversity

Hyde park Book Club

‘Hyde Park Book Club is great because they do really good coffee and amazing vegan chicken wraps as well as being a space with some great events such as open mic nights, poetry events, socials and art exhibitions.’

Ro Sewell, VP Equality & Diversity

Students' Union Bar

‘There's a Students’ Union bar on both campuses where you can find a newly designed menu, cheap drinks and even cheaper food (there's a 10% NUS discount). The SU bars are the perfect place to go between lectures and seminars!'

Jack Harrison, Students’ Union President

The Geek Retreat

'A great place to go and spend a day if you love games - you can play a huge range of board games for free while getting some great food and drink. The staff are really friendly and will help you out with any games you want to learn.'

Jack Harrison, Student Union President

Roundhay Park

‘A huge beautiful park, perfect for summer walks and picnics.’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

The Royal Park

‘A great place to do all three, hang out, eat and drink! It has cheap food, drink and even a student rewards card. If you’re into sport, it’s a good place to catch all the main sporting events.’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

Brudenell Social Club

Whether for watching sports, playing pool or attending gigs, the Brude is a fantastic hangout spot. Located in Hyde Park, Brudenell Social Club is a great place to catch up with mates.

Charlie Hind, VP Education

The Box & The Pit

‘Drink and food prices can be very cheap with a season ticket (given when joining a sports team). If you want a busy, sociable, student night, a trip to these bars will suffice!’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

Headingley Carnegie Stadium

‘Being a massive cricket fan, I’ve often caught a game or two here and with cheap student tickets, it's not too expensive either. Definitely recommend catching a game of cricket during your time in Leeds.’

Aidan Thatcher, VP Activities

Cosy Club

‘The main shopping centre in Leeds, filled with lots of great shops and some cool food places too!’

Jess Carrier, VP Welfare & Community
