Living at home or commuting

Get involved

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!
