Leeds Trinity Library has an excellent range of resources and services to support students and staff. We currently provide access to over 400,000 electronic books, 25,000 electronic journals and a growing collection of specialist subject databases. Our extensive print book and multimedia collections are developed specifically to support Leeds Trinity courses by dedicated subject librarians in partnership with academic staff. Our Learning Centre also provides a great range of IT facilities, including four IT rooms and a 24-Hour IT Lab. You can get help and advice from IT and Library staff and you can also get 1:1 specialist subject support from our team of Liaison Librarians.

IT and computing

Registered students benefit from full internet access and email services with student IT facilities available in the Learning Centre, open 24 hours a day. In addition, all of the university accommodation allows you to connect your own PC or laptop to the Leeds Trinity network and to the internet.


Students also benefit from the fantastic on-site sports and fitness centre with a fitness room, gym, sports hall and new all-weather pitch. Whether you are interested in keeping fit for fun, staying healthy, or playing sport, you’ll find all you need for individual fitness or be part of a sports team.


Students living on or close to the campus can register via Student Health with the GP at the local New Croft Surgery. The GP and registered nurse hold regular surgeries at our campus Health Centre during term time.

Two qualified (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy registered) counsellors work on campus during term time. Access to an off campus counselling service is offered during vacations. The counsellors provide an understanding and caring atmosphere in which you can talk confidentially about anything that is worrying you.


Shopaholics already know you can’t beat Leeds for sheer breadth of retail experience. From the individuality of The Corn Exchange, to the traditional grandeur of The Victoria Quarter, to the up market designer chic of Harvey Nichols, there really is something for every taste and budget.

Eating on campus

The dining room serves a range of cooked meals including fast food, snacks and salads. If you’re short of time, then bar snacks are also available in the Students’ Union HQ at lunchtime and in the evenings so you’ll never go hungry! The dining room also sells a range of goods including stationery, confectionery, soft drinks, toiletries, newspapers and magazines.


A cash machine is available in the main building on campus and you will also find branches of the major banks in Horsforth or in Leeds city centre.


Leeds Trinity has great transport links – it’s easily accessible by road, there’s a railway station ten minutes’ walk from campus and plenty of buses from Leeds and Bradford stop directly outside the main entrance. Leeds Bradford International Airport is only five minutes away by car. Leeds Trinity runs a free shuttle bus that operates during term-time around key points in Horsforth including the train station.

Careers service

There is a consistently high employment rate among Leeds Trinity graduates. In fact Leeds Trinity are in the top 20% for employability in England. The university have a professional and dedicated careers service who will provide you with advice and information to help you choose and develop a successful career path. There are also professional work placements with every degree which gives students great experience in the workplace often leading to a job on completion of their degree.

The careers information room is a good point of call for researching different careers, employers throughout the UK, working or studying abroad, postgraduate study and voluntary work. There are dedicated staff who will guide you through your career planning and job search and the careers team work closely with academic departments to make sure you develop the skills and knowledge you need to help you make the right decisions about your future.

Part-time jobs

Many students choose to work part-time during their studies to help with finances and gain relevant work experience. The campus Jobshop provides information on local voluntary, part-time and vacation work in a variety of sectors, from office work and telesales to bar and retail jobs.

Leeds Trinity place a great value upon voluntary work, and this is reflected in the student activities and programmes that flourish. Leeds Trinity has developed strong links with school sport co-ordinators in primary and secondary schools and gets involved in a wide range of sports.

Religious facilities

The Chaplaincy Centre includes both a chapel and a multi-faith prayer space, which means whatever your faith or belief, there’s a place where you can pray, worship, or find some time for peace and quiet.

Bars, pubs and clubs

At the moment, the live music scene in Leeds is probably the best in the country and is buzzing with top bands that regularly play in Leeds venues or nearby Bradford, York or Sheffield. There are many outdoor gigs including the massive Leeds Festival and on top of this, many events are staged in local parks during the summer.

Leeds has one of the best club scenes in the country, and it just keeps getting better. Many clubs hold regular student nights so you can dance away pretty much every night of the week.


From museums and galleries, to film, art, opera and theatre, Leeds really does have it all. Many of the city’s cultural sights and venues are free or discounted for students so it couldn’t be easier to broaden your horizons. If you’re a proper culture vulture then Opera North and The Northern Ballet are based in Leeds and the West Yorkshire Playhouse has earned a reputation as the ‘National Theatre of the North’.

Clubs and societies

There are many clubs and societies which you could join. Sports teams include football, rugby (league and union), hockey, basketball and volleyball for men and women. Women’s netball and men’s cricket are also on offer, as are athletics and golf. There is also a sign language society, journalism society, psychology and even a trampoline club if you simply want to bounce a lot.


In your first year you might decide to live on campus where all of the halls of residence are located. With seven halls of residence on campus and close to 575 furnished rooms available, you can choose catered or self-catered facilities with most halls of residence providing ensuite facilities. All of the rooms have internet access, and all rooms are within easy access of the 24/7 computer facilities.


Ripon and Whitby Halls

Ripon and Whitby Halls (self-catered accommodation) have kitchens fitted with modern cooking appliances and plenty of storage space. If you don’t fancy cooking for yourself, you can buy a meal in the dining room using cash or student swipe card. Shops and supermarkets are all within easy reach of campus.

Trinity Close

Trinity Close (self-catered, ensuite) comprises 14 blocks of student accommodation, with six study bedrooms in each. All rooms are ensuite and each block has a fully fitted communal kitchen/ dining area.

Kirkstall, Norwich and St Albans Halls

Kirkstall hall (catered, ensuite) and Norwich and St Albans halls (catered, standard) all have a shared kitchenette area (with basic facilities) where you can make yourself a drink and snack, and the dining room where you eat your meals is only a short walk away. The dining room provides a range of hot meals, fast food, sandwiches and salads. Meals can be purchased using your student swipe card.

Disabled accommodation

Specially adapted accommodation in both catered and self-catered halls is offered for disabled residents. The Disability Services Coordinator will discuss your requirements with you prior to you completing an application for accommodation.

Private sector

Leeds has a thriving student population and many students live off campus in one of the popular areas of Horsforth, Headingley or Kirkstall. All of these locations have great public transport links with Leeds Trinity. Some first year students and most second, third and fourth years live in rented accommodation off campus close by in Horsforth or Kirkstall. Or if you prefer, the student hotbeds of Headingley and Hyde Park provide a lively and accessible experience.

It’s worth noting that some students live with their families and travel from all over Yorkshire to study with us – Leeds is very well served by a good motorway network that means travel from slightly further a field is definitely an option. Leeds Trinity and Leeds Trinity Union have a partnership arrangement with UNIPOL student homes (www.unipol.leeds.ac.uk) which provides our students who live off campus with services to ensure they choose appropriate accommodation within the private sector. The accommodation complies with the 2004 Housing Act and the landlord adheres to the ANUK accreditation scheme. www.anuk.org.uk

Students' Union

When you start on a course at Leeds Trinity you automatically become a member of LTU (Leeds Trinity Students’ Union). LTU represents the needs of each student and aims to create an inclusive, vibrant and open students’ union. The Union delivers activities, entertainment and events and ensure that the student’s voice gets heard at every level.

The Students’ Union building is home to HQ, the on campus bar, complete with games and vending machines, making it an excellent place to start your evening or dance until the small hours.

LTU organises regular entertainment on and off the campus and has a wide range of sporting and social societies. At the start of the year you will receive an entertainment calendar highlighting all the events. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, then students are encouraged to contact the Union to discuss setting up an appropriate society.

Also on tap is support and guidance on a range of issues such as finance, health, accommodation and your academic studies. If you are struggling with anything at all, the Union exists to help and is readily accessible.


Leeds Trinity takes it environmental responsibilities very seriously and the university was recently 'highly commended' for its contribution to environmental issues at the Green Gown Awards.


Leeds Trinity has a distinctive campus in an attractive location. Recent improvements include the new Sports Centre and Fitness Suite and All Saints Court student residences.

Local area

Leeds Trinity’s campus is in Horsforth, North West of Leeds and a short bus or train ride from Leeds city centre and the popular student areas of Headingley and Hyde Park. Horsforth has all you need for your day-to-day needs (banks, supermarkets and newsagents) and the odd night out (pubs, bars and restaurants).

Teaching quality

Leeds Trinity is in the top 10% for teaching excellence in the UK, according to the Sunday Times University Guide 2013, and is also top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction with feedback and assessment (Guardian University Guide 2013). Leeds Trinity also has high levels of student satisfaction, according to the National Student Survey (2011), with English and Writing and Early Years students declaring that they are 100% satisfied with their course.
