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.
We offer student-led campus tours most Wednesdays during term time, with more frequent tours available during peak times. Booking opens four weeks before each tour.
Our tours are a great way to get a feel for the campus and to meet some current students. The tours feature the following:
- 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 individual flats and bedrooms)
Depending on when you visit you might be able to see your academic department, but youll need to contact them in advance to arrange an appointment. During term time departments are not always able to accommodate visitors due to teaching commitments.
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.
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.
Our next open days will be on 19 and 20 June 2020. Find out more on our open days site.
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.
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. If there is a particular academic department you'd like to see you should contact the department directly beforehand to avoid disappointment. Download our self-guided tour.
