student life

something for everyone

Admittedly, we’re somewhat biased when it comes to telling you about studying in our great city. That said, it is fair to say that Leeds is hugely popular with students and many choose to stay here after they’ve finished their course.

Whether it’s the great friendships, opportunities to get involved in societies and sports teams, and social events organised by our Students’ Union on campus, or the nightlife, shopping, foodies haven and friendly atmosphere our city offers, student life in Leeds really does have something for everyone.

Leeds - an amazing student city

It’s no secret that Leeds is a fantastic student city. It really does have it all – there’s the buzzing nightlife that you can enjoy every night of the week, lots of great shopping options, one of the largest and (in our opinion) prettiest parks in Europe, plus it’s a foodie’s dream. Our 'Why Leeds if...' guide makes it simple to find out what Leeds has in store for you.
