Welcome to University! We’re so happy that you’ve chosen to join us, and we can’t wait for you to get involved with all the fantastic things we have to offer at LUU, the students’ union at the University of Leeds.
If you’ve not been to University before, you might not be familiar with what a students’ union is. Let us explain. In short, a students’ union exists to represent the interests of students at a given university. That’s our job here at Leeds.
Our mission is to help you love your time at Leeds, and this involves everything from helping you improve your educational experience, to providing advice, support, and all the fun stuff that comes with being a Leeds student. That includes your Welcome experience, as well as year-round stuff like nights out, events, and the clubs and societies that make uni so fulfilling.
Be sure to read the University’s Welcome Guide, and to check this page regularly for all the great events taking place throughout the Leeds Welcome programme.
University will also mean changes to the way most students are used to learning. While adapting to these changes can be a bit of a learning curve, thousands of students do it every year, and you’ll be no different. Read our short piece on some of the changes you can expect.
