Campus and community wellbeing


Whether you are on campus or working from home, in your usual working location or somewhere different, it’s important to stay connected - check out these links for ways to get involved with the University community.

  • Read our new Vice-Chancellor’s Simone Buitendijk’s blog to hear her thoughts.

  • If you’re new to the University, take a look at the Support and guidance for new members of staff to help settle you into your new role.

  • Mo-vember is back - patchy, lopsided, itchy or epic – whatever Mo you grow this Movember, your face will raise funds and awareness for men’s health. Register here and find ideas such as Move for Movember. Link to the LUU's Movember network here and/ or join the Mo running in Leeds.

  • The LOGIK / Staff Centre offers a raft of health and wellbeing community activities and social groups for you to get involved with –see latest newsletter for ideas and opportunities.

  • The Unity initiative and events from the Chaplaincy Service aim to promote unity across the campus community between staff, students and families, different faiths, world views and nationalities.  See The Unity webpage for more information.

  • University of Leeds International Concert Series - enjoy memorable Concert Series moments online with the fortnightly Premiere Series. 

  • Share your knowledge, experience and passion with local third sector organisations through the Sustainability Service Positive Impact Partners initiative.

  • Disabled staff can access the Business Disability Forum (BDF). As well as access to its team of experts, there’s a resource library with guidance, research, blogs and podcasts on a range of topics.

  • Get your cultural fix - visit Leeds University Library Galleries to join the Virtual Sketch and Writing Clubs and see the weekly Two Minute Treasure features. If you’re working on campus, find the 14 must-see artworks on campus (in a socially distanced way of course!) for an inspirational break from work and studies.

  • Share food - think about donating spare food to food banks which will help those struggling or reliant on free school meals. See the list of local food banks in Leeds, or check your local Council website for foodbank lists in other areas.
