The pros and cons of commuting to university
Charlotte has been living at home while studying for several years. She lets you in on the pros and cons of commuting to Leeds Beckett.
COVID restrictions on campus
Unfortunately we still have some restrictions on campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our aim to keep everyone as safe as possible while making campus as accessible as possible. For the latest information visit the COVID-19 section on our site.
Living at home or commuting doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on getting the ‘full’ university experience, wherever you’re living, we want to ensure you have all the support and opportunities you need in place to have a great time at Leeds Beckett.
Every resource, service and opportunity is available to you, so make sure you make the most and get involved!
You may already be living in the local area, if so, that gives you a great head start over students who are moving to Leeds for the first time. Don’t be surprised if students who are new to Leeds keep asking you for advice as they learn their way around and find out more about Leeds!
Join the Students’ Union Facebook page for Commuter Students. Here you’ll be able to find other students who are living at home, stay on top of what’s on and how to get involved.
