Culture on campus

Culture is at the heart of exciting plans to galvanise the University’s contribution to the city and region - as well as nationally and internationally. Our cultural assets on campus offer a wide array of outstanding creative facilities, treasures, and performance and exhibition spaces for students, staff and the general public to engage with.

The University has acquired an array of works of art throughout its history, and we have a number of galleries showcasing our impressive collection, including the Treasures Gallery and the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery.

There are a number of museums and archives on campus open to visitors, including the ULITA Archive of International Textiles, the M&S Company Archive, and the Museum of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine.

Our theatres campus include stage@leeds, home to the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, our public licensed theatre complex dedicated to artist development and supporting new work; and the Workshop Theatre, home to Theatre Studies in the School of English, an intimate space providing opportunities for all the different student communities to work with each other and study theatre.

 We also offer an International Concert Series, with free admission to all students who present a valid student ID card. This offers a varied, professional and exciting series of concerts throughout the year.
