Welcome to Leeds

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to the University of Leeds. You’re joining a University with a strong heritage and enduring reputation which aims to create, advance and disseminate knowledge, develop outstanding graduates and scholars, and make a major impact upon global society.

As members of the University, you are crucial to our achieving these aims, and that’s why we take people development and support very seriously.  On these pages you’ll find a range of resources to help you to make the most of your first few weeks and months at the University.

A good place to start is to ensure that you are booked onto the University’s Introductory Programme, which will introduce you to the University’s strategy and values, student education and research and innovation.  It’s also a great opportunity to meet senior University leaders and other colleagues who are new to Leeds.

Also on these pages are useful links to information about University benefits, guidance for staff and courses and resources to support your professional development. You’ll also find information about the University itself, including campus maps to help you to locate yourself.

Finally, a warm welcome again to the University – we hope you have a successful and enjoyable career here.
