The Leeds Beckett app provides 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 also gives you access to your timetable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What's in the app

The app currently offers you:

  • 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
  • Class check-in
    We are improving how you can check-in online to classes to register your attendance. For Semester 2 2019/20, we are piloting a new system. If you are part of the pilot group, you will be notified directly and provided with information through your course team. Otherwise, you will not be able to check in using the App during this time. The new system will be made available to all students from September 2020. Tier 4 students must continue to sign in using paper registers during Semester 2 2019/20.
  • 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!)
  • Café menus
    Menus for each of our campus food outlets, updated daily so you can see exactly what pizza topping is available today

Helping you log in

When logging into the app please ensure that you are using your username and password to log in. Although your standard username is not normally shown on your Campus Card it is easy to work out. You just need to change the 1st number of your Student ID to a "c" e.g. 11234567 becomes c1234567

Your password is the one that you use to log in to MyBeckett or a student PC. If you are a new student and still unable to log in, please try logging into MyBeckett first, as you may need to set a new password.

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. You will be prompted to check in to your class shortly before it starts. The system confirms a valid check in using location data and a one-time code provided by your lecturer.

Please note that during Semester 2, 2019/20, it will not be possible to check in using the App unless you are on one of the courses identified for the pilot.

Guidance notes for students on pilot courses.

Plus Icon Do I need to check out?
No.
Plus Icon I’m a Tier 4 student – do I need get my timetables signed each week?

All Tier 4 students must continue to collect paper timetables each week and get them signed in their classes. This is how the university collects and monitors data regarding Tier 4 student attendance.

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. You should however see your lecturer immediately after the session finishes so that they can check you in manually. 

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 classes 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?

If you have followed the steps outlined above in the section above called 'Helping you log in' and you are still having difficulty, then you may require a password reset.

Plus Icon Where can I find help? 

Speak to staff on the Student Hub if you’re having any problems.
