Overview

Leeds Arts University is the only specialist arts university in the North of England, teaching at both higher and further education level. The University was founded in 1846 as the Leeds School of Art and the main campus is opposite the University of Leeds.

Over the last 170 years, Leeds Arts University has contributed significantly to the development of art education in Britain, having pioneered new ways to teach and to structure qualifications.

Nightlife

Leeds has a buzzing and diverse nightlife, with a wide variety of clubs, bars, theatres and restaurants, and proudly celebrating the many LGBT-friendly options within the city.

From our popular pedestrianised areas such as Call Lane and Greek Street to bars and live music venues such as The Brudenell Social Club or Belgrave Music Hall, there is always something going on that suits everyone!

Halls of residence

The majority of our accommodation is offered to first year students on our undergraduate degree courses and a certain number of rooms are allocated to Foundation Diploma students moving in from outside the area. We offer accommodation at either Carlton Hill or Liberty Park, alternatively some students go into shared housing.

Clubs and societies

All of the societies run by our student’s union, Leeds Arts Union, are started by students the University. Currently we have 20 societies, ranging from, The Cheese Society to Hula Hooping and Life Drawing to Debating!

If you’ve got an interest and want to get other students involved, speak to the staff who work in our Student Union. They will help you get a society up and running in no time!
We also host many events throughout the year, including our Graduate Summer Ball, Welfare Week, quizzes, exhibitions and lots more!

Leeds Arts Union welcomes all new students to the University with our Freshers Weeks, spread over the first two weeks of the term. Our not to miss Freshers Fair hosts some of the best independent businesses and charities from across the city as well as all of our societies and sports teams.  Events across the weeks range from big nights out in town to relaxing coffee mornings in local cafes, giving students a chance to get to know the city and meet students across all of our courses.  

There is also the opportunity to sample our sports and fitness offerings, with free sessions held in the second week. Leeds Arts Union aims to give all students the friendliest welcome that Leeds can offer.  We love our city, and we think you will too.
