We don’t condone the use of illegal drugs or the misuse of prescription drugs or alcohol at the University of Leeds. But we understand that some students may choose to take drugs or drink alcohol during their time at Leeds.  

Our harm reduction stance means we’re committed to reducing harm by offering the support, resources and education students need to feel safe, make informed choices, and succeed – at Leeds and in their futures. 

The University does have a legal responsibility to ensure its premises are not used for illegal drug activity and this includes your University accommodation. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all students in our accommodation.  

The University website has more information about our position on illegal drugs and the support we offer to students who need it.
