At Leeds University Union, we work hard to represent your academic interests

Leeds University Union (LUU) is the students’ union at the University of Leeds.

We are an independent organisation that exists to represent students and their interests to the university, as well as on a local and national scale, giving them a voice on the things that matter to them.

But we do much more than that:

  1. We help you love your time at Leeds

  2. We represent your academic interests

  3. We provide somewhere to relax and socialise on campus

  4. We help you make friends and discover new activities


This website gives more detail about how we represent your academic interests:

  • Understand the improvement in academic experience we help create

  • Find out more about School, PGR and Course Representatives, and how to become one

  • Understand our relationship with the university

  • Find resources about Student Staff Partnership Forum, and find out students make their voices heard in this meeting


LUU can also help you with individual academic issues such as problems with your own studies, complaints and academic appeals. Head over to our Help and Support page to find out more. The Help and Support service is free and confidential, and because we are separate from the university it is completely impartial.
