“The University has invested heavily in digital technology over the last five years, recognising that not only is education changing, students’ expectations are changing too.”
Our investment in campus facilities was commended by the University of the Year judges - our £520m campus development programme supports Leeds position as one of the UKs top higher education institutions. Investment in our libraries, accommodation and teaching spaces led to our students rating us as one of the top universities in the country for our facilities.
Recently completed projects include:
- The Edward Boyle Library
- Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies
- Refurbished spaces for Medical and Dentistry students at the Worsley Building
- Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery
- Brownlee Centre and Cycle Circuit
These investments give our students inspiring places to work, state of the art teaching facilities and opportunities to unlock their sporting goals.
We also have a number of ongoing campus developments including the Bragg Centre, a new engineering and physical sciences facility, and Nexus, a new £40 million innovation and enterprise centre, which will provide opportunities for students to engage with business and improve graduate prospects
Investment in digital technology
Digitally enabled, collaborative teaching spaces promote interactive working, and our state-of-the-art lecture capture system enables students to access video and audio recordings of lectures, so they can review content and study at your own pace. Our £25m refurbishment of the Edward Boyle Library follows the opening of the Laidlaw Library in 2015. Further investment is planned for our central teaching spaces
