Visit us

The best way to find out more about what Leeds is like is to visit us. Every year we welcome thousands of students at open days, on campus tours and applicant visit days.

These are a great way to explore our campus and sample University life.

Download our self-guided tour to make the most of your visit. For travel information take a look at our campus map, see our find us page or download our directions sheet.

Open days

Find out more about your course, and speak to academics and students at one of our open days. You can visit some of our accommodation, and talk to our experts about finance and how to apply. Our campus is a short walk from the city centre so you can visit Leeds while you’re here.

Our open day dates for 2018 are:

Friday 15 June
Saturday 16 June
Saturday 8 September
Saturday 6 October


You can book your place on a summer open day now. Booking for the autumn open days will open in late June. Find out more
on our open day pages.

We also hold an accommodation viewing day every spring, when all our residences are open for you to explore. Talk to students and staff who will be on hand to answer your questions.

Campus tours

If you want to visit but can’t attend an open day, why not take a campus tour? They’re a great 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:

Depending on when you visit you might be able to see your academic department, but you’ll need to contact them in advance to arrange an appointment.. 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 before each tour. Book your place.

International campus tours

If you are an EU or overseas fee paying student, you can book an international campus tour. Guided by current students, you will see the International Student Office, the Brotherton Library and our sports centre.

As with all our campus tours, you might be able to visit your academic department, but you’ll need to contact them directly as this is not included as part of the tour. 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.
