University of Leeds


What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"The food on campus is quite expensive."
"The access to counselling and student well-being services could be improved."
"It can be a little overwhelming at times."
"The lack of space in the library."
"There is a lack of support for mental health and a lack of good constructive and in-depth feedback."
"First-year accommodation is too spread out."
"The worst thing is the size of the university campus. There's too much walking around from the law school, which means you can often be late for lectures."
"Only one library is open 24 hours. The other two libraries should be open until at least midnight during the exam period at least. The student gym is too small compared to the number of students who use it."


"Leeds is a small town and there aren't enough jobs for students here."
"Deadline management could be improved to avoid peak times."
"There aren't many healthy food option choices at the union."
"There aren't many places for sight-seeing in the area."
"Sometimes finding housing in upper years can be difficult as the quality of areas can differ greatly."
"It's often quite busy in the libraries and cafes etc."
"As a joint honours student I feel there are frequent clashes with timetables and limited options for study choices."
"Societies are treated in a hierarchy (sports are higher than cultural societies, for example) and allocated funding, attention and support as such. The gym on campus is very expensive and lecturers in smaller departments are not as well supported as in larger departments."
"The workload is very high. There isn't always time to recap your work as much as you'd like."
"There's not enough academic contact time in every course. The university can sometimes feel too research-based rather than student-orientated."
