Edward Boyle Library

Our Campus Facilities are top five for student experience

The University of Leeds has moved into the top five in this year’s Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, from sixth position last year, to fourth this year.

Every year, the Times Higher Education survey asks students across the UK to give their views about their university on a range of issues, from the quality of teaching and how well-structured the courses are, through to accommodation and support and welfare.

Our facilities, activities and societies and services such as security on campus, student welfare and support all feature particularly strongly. In the survey the students voted Leeds third for its facilities, including quality, convenience, library/opening hours, shop and bar amenities, and sports facilities.

We offer exceptional campus facilities too!

With first-rate accommodation, libraries and teaching facilities, the University is investing a further £520m to further develop the campus to support world-leading research and teaching.

This spring sees the completion of some of the most recent investments, including the £5m Brownlee Centre and cycle track and the £24.7m refurbishment of the Edward Boyle Library.

Already one of the best student unions in the UK, Leeds University Union was the first union to be awarded ‘excellent’ status in NUS quality accreditation and will provide even better facilities and opportunities for students following the completion of a £17 million upgrade in 2017.

The Union continues to receive one of the highest levels of satisfaction amongst students.
