Supporting you during lockdown

Student support

If you have any queries or concerns get in touch with the Help and Support team by emailing or calling 0113 3801400 and they will be able to provide advice and support.

Your student exec have also setup the 'LUU Covid-19 Community' group - a group for the students of Leeds to come together during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your one stop shop for all of the good that is coming out of this tricky time.

LUU Hardship Fund

On 15 April LUU launched an Emergency Hardship Fund. We know many students have lost jobs in casual employment and have other things going on that make it harder to meet essential living costs, so we asked the University for a pot of money for students with limited or no funds, experiencing or at risk of experiencing immediate financial hardship.

We want to make it as straightforward to apply as possible so all you need to do is get in touch with to find out if you are eligible.

You can still find details of the usual hardship funding arrangements here - they take longer to be processed but larger amounts can be awarded.


Virtual Education

We’re continuing to support you as you transition to online education - we know it’s highly disruptive and your student exec are lobbying the university to get the best education outcomes:

"I am regularly consulting with all School Reps to assess local issues as well as collaborating with other Officers through the NUS to find national solutions. The rest of the officer team and I have been in consultation with the University Executive Group about the University’s response and ensuring that the effects on both taught students and researchers are understood and that those unseen issues which emerge from the shutdown are considered and responded to.

As we approach exam season I will be putting all of my energy into ensuring our student body continues to receive an excellent educational experience. We must ensure that assessment arrangements do not increase barriers to already marginalised students; it is this which has motivated us to call for simplified mitigating circumstances procedures and a universal ‘no-detriment’ policy. This is how we will ensure no student is disadvantaged or achieves lower grades due to circumstances outside their control."

Abiha Khan, Education Officer 2020/21

Have Your Say

We want to take this opportunity to find out what you think, so If you've got a spare minute, we'd love it if you could fill out one of our surveys (you might even be in with a chance of winning some prizes).
