A new £5m University of Leeds sports facility launches this week, named after its most successful sporting alumni.

The University has climbed two places and retains its position in the top 20 in this year’s Complete University Guide.

The impact of the University’s research and its commitment to supporting early career academics has been demonstrated to the incoming chair of the new body set to oversee the UK’s research councils.

With Leeds being home to the largest digital sector outside London, the University is celebrating its contribution with a series of events during Leeds Digital Festival 2017.

The University has commissioned the British-American artist, Liliane Lijn, to create a new work of public art for its campus.
