The University of Leeds campus landscape is something all staff, students and visitors experience, it is one of our greatest assets. Our vision is to ensure that these spaces, enhance sense of place, provide lively hubs for social activity, embed sustainability and provide a welcoming, inclusive place contributing to everyone’s wellbeing.

A new University Landscape Strategy is currently being developed with Gillespies Landscape Architects. It represents a fantastic opportunity to create a cohesive, inclusive, high quality public realm which complements the historic University campus, and existing context whilst helping us to sustainably meet the needs of future developments.

The landscape strategy will create an exciting vision for the development of our campus – with inspiring, memorable and unique spaces – which complements our built landscape, providing a strong set of design principles and strategic proposals to guide future direction. Our main aim is to conserve and enhance what we value most about our campus landscape whilst allowing it to evolve to meet new challenges.
