Student App

Download our new mobile app

Get it on Google Play

For the new academic year we have launched a new mobile app for Leeds Beckett students. This app will provide access to your online learning tools along with information and functionality to support all areas of student life from health and wellbeing to social events, from transport to food. The app will also enable you to automatically sign in to all your lectures and tutorials, replacing the previous paper-based registers that were taken by your tutors.

The app currently offers you:

  • Lecture check in
    Check into your lectures, seminars and tutorials using the inbuilt check in system. (Requires Bluetooth activation).
  • Timetables
    Access to your timetables directly within the app.
  • Campus Maps
    Maps of Headingley Campus, City Campus, Broadcasting Place and the Pavilion with the locations of buildings, sports facilities, food vendors, cash machines and a range of other facilities. There is also a map of Leeds showing the location of all our Halls of Residence and other useful places in the city.
  • Computer availability
    Information on how many free desktop PCs are available in our libraries and all of our social learning spaces.*
    * (nb - we can't guarantee they will still be free when you get there!)
  • Learning platforms
    Links to the various online platforms used as part of your learning.

We'll be adding more functions over the next year, and if you've already downloaded it, there's an updated version available now.

Get it on Google Play

The app free and is available on both Android and iOS and works on phones and tablets (minimum specs below) and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play now.

Helping you log in

Having trouble logging into the Leeds Beckett app?  Firstly, we're very sorry for any inconvenience and annoyance this may have caused. Rest assured that we're still monitoring attendance, but we won't be sending out any communication to students that might have missed lectures until we're confident any bugs in the system have been resolved.

We have identified two possible reasons for this problem, details of how to fix are below:

  1. Please make sure you have the latest version of the app installed. A new version containing the log in functionality was published on the App Store / Google Play on Thursday 22 September - please check that your phone has this version installed via your device's app manager. (It should prompt you saying an update is available if you haven't already installed it.)
  2. If you have used the app prior to 22 September it may believe you are already logged in and give you a message about being 'Unable to change profiles'. To avoid this you will need to force the app to log you out of it's database. To do this:
    • Apple: Select Settings (a cog icon on the bottom menu bar.) On the following screen scroll down and select Logout. Answer 'yes' at the prompt and it will log you out.
    • Android: Select Settings (the three dots in the top right hand corner of the app.) Click on the icon of a key that appears in the top menu and select 'yes' when prompted. This will log you out.
  3. The app should now allow you to log in with your normal university user name and password.
If you're still experiencing problems, log out of the app and then log back in. Restart your device and allow 'auto check-in' on your app settings.

Questions and Answers

Plus Icon How does the check-in system for lectures and tutorials work?

The app will synch with your timetable and so will know which room your are supposed to be in at which time. Each room contains a small beacon that contacts your phone via Bluetooth when you enter the room, checks if you have a timetabled event in that area and - if so - checks you in to your class. There is no need to have the app open or to check-in manually - as long as you have your Bluetooth enabled then the app will work in the background.

Plus Icon Do I need to check out?
No, and we'll soon be removing this functionality from the app.
Plus Icon Is the University checking up on me everywhere I go?

No. The app will only register you if you have an event on your timetable in that room at that time. If you are not timetabled for that period it will ignore you and no record will be kept. Don't worry - it won't monitor how long you have been in the library, the gym or the Students' Union bar!

Plus Icon What if I don't have a smart phone or forget to bring it to class?

If you don't have a smart phone or are unable to use the app, or if you forget to bring your phone to class or it is out of charge then don't worry - your tutor will be able to check you into the new system manually for that class.

Plus Icon Why is the University monitoring attendance?

It's important that students get the best out of their course and their time at University. Regularly failing to attend lectures or tutorials is an early sign that you may be struggling with some issues that might be impacting your studies. These issues could be academic, financial or wellbeing but whatever the causes we want to be able to help you, so spotting things early will enable us to offer you any support you need to help you successfully continue with your studies.

This monitoring will not form part of any disciplinary process, however there is an attendance policy that all students are obliged to sign-up to as part of their enrolment.

Plus Icon Is the app available on Windows phones and tablets?

No. Unfortunately the app is only available on Android and iOS at this time. A web version is available that will give you access to the same content which can be viewed through your phone's browser.

Plus Icon I can't log in. What should I do?

There’s a chance, for a small group of students, that your system passwords may be out of sync. You can easily bring them back into line here: Reset your password.  Still having trouble? Read the info above called 'Helping you log in'.

Plus Icon Where can I find help? 

Speak to staff on the Student Hub if you’re having any problems. You can also email us at CampusM@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.
