We recognise that there may be times during your studies when you might need some extra support.

You can get information from our website for current students on all the support services we offer. Here are examples of just some of them.

Health and wellbeing

We have a counselling service and a wellbeing team, and in addition to one of the most comprehensive welfare services in the country, the Union runs Nightline, a listening and information service run by students for students.

Leeds University Union's Student Advice Centre works hard to support student welfare. They provide help with any problems concerning life as a student, specialising in housing, money and academic problems. All their help is free and confidential and they are independent of the University.

Disability support

We provide specialist support to any student with a disability, mental health or learning difficulty

The RNIB and University of Leeds Transcription Centre provides academic transcription for University students affected by sight loss and other disabilities.

The Leeds Assessment Centre is an accredited assessment centre which carries out assessments as part of a disabled student’s application for disability support funding.

The DisabledGo organisation has created a detailed access guide to our spaces and buildings. Find out more

Be part of our multi-faith campus

The Chaplaincy works with both our staff and students and those at Leeds Beckett University. You don’t need to have a particular faith to make use of the Chaplaincy; it is a place of welcome and friendship for all and can support you during your time at Leeds. You can talk in confidence to one of our chaplains, who come from a number of faith backgrounds.

We have information on prayer and contemplation facilities on-campus and there are a number of faith related student societies you can join.
