We help you make friends and discover new activities
Clubs and societies are a major part of the student experience, and at LUU we have more than 300 of them for you to choose from. Joining a club or society is a brilliant way to meet like-minded people and maintain an active social life whilst also developing new interests and skills.
We enable you to get a part time job
We know that many students opt to find part time work alongside their studies, and at LUU we have an in-house student job shop, Joblink, to help make finding a suitable role as easy as possible.
As experts in the student job market, Joblink will help connect you with employers offering part-time and flexible work, internships, projects and holiday jobs to help you earn as you learn.
Find out more about Joblink and explore current vacancies here. You can also read about the experience of students in one of our recent news articles: Earn as You Learn: How LUU can help you find a job at uni.
We support you when things aren’t going well
Sometimes things don’t go to plan, but LUU has a dedicated Help and Support team there for you whenever you need them. Offering independent, confidential, expert advice for free to all Leeds students, the team can help with anything from money worries to mental health difficulties – no problem is too big or small.
They’re available to help by phone, email or in person, and there’s also a 24/7 self-help resource available on the website for round-the-clock support. So remember, if it ever gets too much, we’ve got your back. All you need to do is ask.
Our Help and Support team also delivers the Health and Wellbeing Project, an initiative to encourage students to proactively look after their wellbeing. As well as putting on events such as stress management workshops and self-defence classes, they also create content for students to access at a time that suits them, including a podcast and a Medium blog.
We are a member of the NUS
LUU is a member of the National Union of Students (NUS), which enables us to be involved in student movements on a national scale. You might know NUS as the place to get a TOTUM Card and sort out your student discount, but they’re also a large member-led campaigning organisation. Twelve NUS delegates are elected at LUU every year, and everyone can run to join the panel. Being an NUS delegate is a great opportunity to meet students from across the country and to shape the student experience on a national level – they get to participate at a yearly NUS conference to decide its priorities for the year ahead.
