Leeds Beckett Students' Union

Leeds Beckett Students' Union

Leeds Beckett Students' Union (LBSU) exists to support an excellent student experience at Leeds Beckett University. Your Officer Team are elected by you, to lead the Students’ Union into the academic year. They're here to make students’ lives better and address the many different needs of the student body. LBSU offers volunteering opportunities, societies, events and entertainments. They also provide support, employability skills, advice and information.
Leeds Beckett Students' Union will reopen their bars in September for takeouts. All their other services will be available to students digitally. Your Students’ Union is here to help you in whatever way we can during these uncertain times.


Plus Icon How can I contact the Students' Union?
Although the Students' Union helpdesks and the Hive are closed until further notice, SU services are still available. More information is available on the LBSU website.
Plus Icon Is Freshers taking place this year?

Yes. Leeds Beckett Students’ Union is running a full programme of in-person and online events during September, from the Headingley Freshers Fair, to e-sports tournaments and virtual escape rooms. You will be able to register for in-person events so that we can keep you as safe as possible. Keep checking the Students’ Union’s Freshers page for more information.

Plus Icon Am I able to join sports clubs?

Sports clubs will be open to join for all students at the start of the academic year. The Leeds Beckett Athletic Union has over 85 teams across 40 sports that you can be a part of. Find out which sports are offered through the Students’ Union’s sports page.

Plus Icon What can I do to feel a part of the community and make new friends at Leeds Beckett?

You can join a society and meet new people, make new friends and enhance your university experience. There are over 70 societies to choose from, covering a wide range of interests, topics and hobbies. Find out more through the Students’ Union’s societies page about how you can get involved. 

Plus Icon Will I be able to take part in societies, student groups and other activities during the 2020/21 academic year?

We will be continuing to support students to form and run societies, projects, enterprises and campaigns, and applications to the Student Activities Grant Fund will continue to be available to help support this activity. We do not expect to be able to facilitate the organisation of student-led events on campus during semester one, however we will provide support for online, remote, and other off-campus events subject to risk assessment and adherence to current government guidelines.

Our Student Activities staff team will be offering a full service remotely. Visit the Student Activities team’s webpage for more information.

Plus Icon Is the Students' Union's advice service open and how can I access support?

We will be operating a full service, providing confidential and independent advice on a range of issues affecting students, including academic regulations and procedures, student finance and accommodation issues. All advice is given by a team of experienced advisers, who can be contacted by phone, email or through our online enquiry form. Appointments will be conducted via a phone or video call at a mutually convenient time.

In-person appointments will not be available during semester one unless under exceptional circumstances.

Visit the Student Advice team’s webpage for details on how to get in-touch.

Plus Icon How can I have my voice heard and help to shape the student experience at Leeds Beckett?

We will continue to work with the university to elect, train and support course representatives to ensure that students’ feedback and ideas continue to shape course delivery at Leeds Beckett. A full programme of course rep training and school forums will be delivered remotely. We will also be continuing our work ensuring the diverse community of students at Leeds Beckett is effectively represented through our campaign work.

Our ‘Have Your Say’ initiative, which allows students to shape the work of the Students’ Union and make change by submitting ideas, will operate entirely online. Idea submission will continue as normal, with the Have Your Say Forums, open to all students, taking place online four times across the year.

Plus Icon Which volunteering programmes will be available through the Students' Union?

We will be continuing to support students to find relevant and safe volunteering opportunities to help develop skills and experience while making a positive contribution to the community at the same time. We will be running our ‘Volunteer from Home’ programme, as well as sourcing opportunities that can be done outdoors, or safely indoors, subject to risk assessment and adherence to current government guidelines.

For more information, visit the Student Volunteering team’s webpage.

Plus Icon Will student elections take place during the 2020/21 academic year?

Elections to a range of representative roles will be taking place in both semester one and semester two, however all campaigning activity associated with these will be subject to risk assessment and adherence to current government guidelines.
