We're the students' union of 30,000 students at Leeds University. Our clubs, bars and events are essential to student life!

Jamie talks about community

Leeds Leeds Leeds!

Leeds is an amazing city and a great place to live for the duration of your degree and beyond.

If you’re after a spot of shopping, nearly every major shop can be found either on the streets of the city centre or in the brand new Leeds Trinity shopping centre. At the bottom of town, Kirkgate Market is a beautiful Victorian building that’s home to great quality food for cheap prices – we’ll be running free tours during Freshers’ so we’ll make sure you don’t miss out!

If smaller, independent shops and restaurants are more your thing, Headingley has a whole range to satisfy your food and drink cravings. Every week, we have a Farmers’ Market on campus – they set up their stalls outside the Union building so you can shop locally with ease.

Leeds offers so much to do, and you don’t have to break the bank to do it. Visit the City Museum and Leeds Art Gallery (both are near Millennium Square in the city centre) or the Royal Armouries in Clarence Dock – all are completely free of charge. The West Yorkshire Playhouse offers 3 free tickets to plays for people under 26, then after you’ve used those up, you can get five tickets for a fiver each, then ten tickets for (yes, you guessed it) ten quid each.

I couldn’t talk about the great city of Leeds without mentioning the nightlife. With a large range of bars and clubs catering for music tastes from Aaliyah to the Zutons, there’s something for everyone every day of the week. Here at the Union, we have a whole host of events throughout the year so that you can dance all night long to your favourite tunes.

If you fancy venturing outside the city, there’s plenty to do and see. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is just outside of Leeds and features contemporary art across 500 acres. The city has fantastic transport links if you fancy a day trip to Scarborough, the Lake District or neighbouring cities like Liverpool or Manchester.

Not only is there lots to do in Leeds, it is also a brilliant place to live. We’re proud to have such a diverse range of people from all different backgrounds. When you arrive, make sure you get to know your neighbours – they may be fellow students or permanent residents.

Follow me on Twitter and remember to keep checking my blog for more information about upcoming events or opportunities in your community throughout the year. Have a great Freshers’!

1:27pm on 14 May 15 It is a general truth that people who are obese are those most likely to contract diabetes type 2. If the negative habits of some of these people continue after a diagnosis of diabetes, they can lead to further health complications. https://www.rebelmouse.com/diabetescuredavidpearson/
