Open days and visits

Choosing where to study is a big decision, which is why we encourage you to come and visit the campus to help you decide if the University of Leeds is right for you.

Please download our directions sheet and campus map to make the most of your visit.

Open days

The next undergraduate open days will be in June, September and October 2016. Booking for the Summer open days will begin in March 2016.

Campus tours

Campus tours are aimed at those who have not yet submitted their UCAS application, and are a good way to get a feel for the campus and to meet some current students.

The student-led walking tours of the campus will feature the following major facilities:

  • Leeds University Union
  • one of our libraries
  • our sports centre The Edge
  • one of our halls of residence (please note we may not be able to access to individual flats and bedrooms)

Please note that campus tours do not include visits to individual departments. If you wish to visit an academic department you should contact them directly beforehand to see if it is possible to look around. Please note that during term time departments are not always able to accommodate visitors due to teaching commitments.

We offer tours most Wednesdays during term time, with more frequent tours available during peak times. Booking opens four weeks prior to each tour, so please return nearer the time if you do not see a suitable tour.

You can now book a place on a campus tour. Campus tours do not run in the weeks surrounding open days.

International campus tours

If you are an EU or overseas fee paying student, you can book an international campus tour. The tours, led by students, include the International Student Office, the Brotherton Library and our sports centre. They do not include visits to individual departments or accommodation.

As with all our campus tours, if you would like to visit an academic department, contact them directly. If you would like to view one of our halls of residence, contact the International Office after you have booked your tour. It may not be possible to visit our accommodation during term time if the halls are occupied.

For further information contact the International Office

Independent visits

If you're unable to make a guided campus tour or you would rather explore the campus on your own, you can arrange an independent visit. You can visit at any time - but remember that University buildings are not normally open at weekends and if there is a particular academic department you'd like to see you should contact the department directly beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Please download our self-guided tour, our directions sheet and campus map to make the most of your visit.
