The University of Leeds will be hosting its first virtual open day over two weeks from 29 June.
The open day is a great way for prospective students to get a sense of our beautiful campus and see the fantastic learning and teaching spaces we have. Estates and Facilities have always supported the running of the open days by ensuring the campus is looking its absolute best and that all buildings are open ready for visitors. However, since the event is now a virtual open day we thought we could help showcase our incredible study spaces.
The Design Office create inspiring and engaging study space for students to work in a variety of different ways. The spaces are divided into zones using furniture solutions that encourage collaborative group work as well as quiet areas for individual study and contemplation.
We’ve recently completed a number of refurbishment projects including:
- Study spaces in the Maurice Keyworth Building,
- The Language Centre in the Parkinson Building,
- The School of Language teaching spaces on Lyddon Terrace,
- Brotherton West, in the Brotherton Library.
New building projects
As well as refurbishing current spaces we also have a number of on-going and future projects that will transform the student experience at the University of Leeds.
Sir William Henry Bragg Building
Set to open its doors to students in 2021, the new building represents a significant investment by the University in a new integrated campus for Engineering and Physical Sciences. The facility will include first-class laboratory and specialised teaching spaces, enabling cutting-edge research, and outstanding student experience, whilst enhancing the University’s research power and strengthening collaboration with industry.

The Esther Simpson Building
Phase three of a multi-million-pound project to develop new Leeds University Business School and School of Law buildings. It will be a new central teaching space for all to use and will provide technology-rich, flexible teaching spaces, lecture theatres, and trading rooms, further advancing the delivery of world-class teaching solutions.
