Summer teaching arrangements

Any teaching taking place over the summer period will continue as planned. Teaching rooms will be configured at 2m social distancing and other COVID-19 measures will be in place as required.

Summer in Leeds

Summer in Leeds is a programme of free events which allow you to explore campus and beyond and to meet other students and postgraduate researchers. The programme runs until 24th September. All events are free and must be pre booked to comply with COVID-19 restrictions. We are running events such as campus and city tours, sport and wellbeing sessions at the Edge, art trails, movies, games, picnics and more. Find out more at Summer in Leeds.

Working together to stay safe

Please see our guidelines to help us work together to stay safe. This includes guidance on safe distancing and other measures that the University will be implementing to keep us all safe.

Book a COVID-19 test

The University is providing asymptomatic lateral flow testing for all students. You can only take a test if you have no symptoms of COVID-19. Book a free asymptomatic test online.

If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you must not book an asymptomatic test – instead, you must stay at home and book a free test online, or call 119 if without internet access.

Let us know if you are self-isolating or test positive

Let us know if you are self-isolating or have tested positive for coronavirus so we can support you. Read our information and advice on support available if you experience coronavirus symptoms, test positive, or are required to follow government guidance to self-isolate.

Applicants and offer holders

If you’re an applicant or offer holder please visit our coronavirus information FAQs tailored to you. This includes if you’re in the final year of your undergraduate degree but you are applying for a Masters with us. We also have information for postgraduate researcher applicants and offer holders.


University accommodation

For those who live in University accommodation, we’re also taking measures to ensure you feel safe and confident about your home, including the provision of a more frequent and thorough cleaning regime, clear signage and hand sanitiser stations. We have a staggered and contactless arrivals process, effective social distancing measures and a programme of virtual events, so that you’ll be able to meet people and socialise in a safe way. Our experienced accommodation team will also be available to help you, offering advice and support to keep you safe and well.

Private accommodation

If you are moving into private accommodation, LUU has provided a range of advice to help you do this safely. LUU’s Help and Support team are also available to answer any questions you may have about your move.

Students with underlying health conditions

Please see the NHS advice for people at higher risk.

Please make sure you are registered with a local doctor. Most students choose to register with the Leeds Student Medical Practice (LSMP) which is near the University campus.
