We encourage students to protect themselves and others by following government advice around social distancing, shielding of extremely vulnerable people, self-isolating and testing and tracing if we display any symptoms, no matter how mild.

Our Student Services include Disability Advice, Student Money, Student Wellbeing, and the Student Advice Hub. The team will be supporting students online, by telephone and email services.

Students should contact Student Services if they’d like someone to talk to or are unsure how these services might help them. Our Student Advice Hub is there to listen, advise or point them in the right direction. Students can contact them on 0113 812 3000 or email studentadvicehub@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.
