Leeds Trinity University is a single-site campus, so everything you need for student life is all here in one place.

Study Facilities

Whether you’re wanting to study on your own, revise in silence or work together in a group, the Andrew Kean Learning Centre is the University’s study hub.

With 24-hour networked study spaces, teaching rooms and the library which has a vast range of books, journals, films and classroom resources, the Learning Centre offers a place to work and collaborate, supporting your learning journey at Leeds Trinity.

As well as the facilities found at the Learning Centre, the University offers study support with industry-standard TV, radio and podcast studios, editing suites, photography studios and an equipment loan service as part of the Media Centre.

There are also sport science laboratories, fitness and sports therapy suites and a motion capture analysis lab in our on-campus fitness and sports centre.

IT Services

Our IT Services team is based at the Learning Centre. They provide help and resources to support your studies, including laptop rentals, the use of over 700 PCs and Macs in the centre’s study areas, and the use of Office 365 on any device.

Careers Services

Whether our students are looking for graduate-level or part-time job opportunities, our myFuture team can access job vacancies and offer support with CVs and job applications. They guide students through professional work placements, matching them with suitable employers, and help plan your career beyond graduation.


Studying can build up quite an appetite, so we’ve got plenty of food and drink outlets around campus, from Starbucks in the Atrium and the library café, to the main dining hall which caters for all dietary needs, and the bar which offers food and drink throughout the day and night.

Students’ Union

Leeds Trinity Students’ Union offers plenty of sports clubs and societies for you to join – from dance and Disney to gin, veganism and board games. Love sports? Join one of the University’s teams, including football, rugby, netball and hockey. They also put on events and entertainment all the way through from your Freshers’ Week to the Graduation Ball.

Student Support

We know that no two students’ needs are the same, and we offer high-quality tailored support to help you to flourish during your time at Leeds Trinity. Our Student Support Services team can help with student finance, academic and learning support, counselling, mental health and disability support.

Living Here

Leeds Trinity University is based in Horsforth, just six miles outside Leeds city centre - you’re only a 12-minute train ride from everything the city has to offer and close to the student-friendly suburb of Headingley.

Leeds is one of the best student cities in the UK – from the legendary music scene, amazing nightlife and the abundance of independent restaurants and bars to the shopping, culture and sports – Leeds has it all.

The city is also great for graduate opportunities, as it’s home to big-name companies and rapidly growing digital and media sectors.

Our free shuttle bus connects the campus to the train station, doctor’s surgery and local supermarket, and Horsforth has plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants to keep you entertained when you don’t fancy a big night out in the city.

And, of course, there’s beautiful countryside right on our doorstep, with the Yorkshire Dales just a quick drive away to really get away from it all.
