Student life 

Going to university is about more than just studying. It’s where you’ll make friends, memories and encounter new experiences. And as one of the best student cities in the UK, Leeds couldn’t be a better place to live and study.

You’ll start your degree with a bespoke line-up of Freshers’ activities taking place in and around the City Campus and the Main Campus. From there, you’ll be able to join Leeds Trinity Students’ Union (LTSU), and the Chaplaincy for events taking place at either campus throughout the academic year.

Both LTSU and the Chaplaincy will have dedicated spaces located on the 1st floor of the City Campus. A communal student lounge will also be located on this floor for you to relax and engage with their services. You’ll also be able to join a wide range of clubs and societies, with our sports clubs based at our Main Campus.

Our City Campus is located in the centre of Leeds, placing you just minutes away from everything the city has to offer. Opposite Trevelyan Square you’ll find Trinity Leeds, the city’s premier shopping centre which includes a cinema and nearly 100 shops, restaurants and bars. If you’re looking for something to do, visit Flight Club or Roxy Ballroom for a round of games, or visit one of the city’s many museums and galleries. 

Looking for somewhere to unwind?  At our City Campus, you’ll find a range of spaces for you to relax with friends, including a student lounge, courtyards, and an enclosed garden where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
