There are some great opportunities for you right here on campus!

Accommodation Office Summer Jobs

During the summer months, within the Accommodation Office, we have a number of exciting roles available. To assist during a very busy period, we require assistance in processing accommodation applications for new and existing students. In addition, we also establish a call centre in August to help answer the hundreds of calls we receive daily from students excited to start living at the University of Leeds.

If you have experience working in customer service, have great communication skills, and can work well as part of a team, apply today!

The closing date for applying is 12 noon Friday 31 March 2023. Find out more about the roles and how to apply here!

International Welcome Team 

The International Student Office is now recruiting students and recent graduates to join their International Welcome Team.  

The International Welcome team oversees all welcome activities for international students, from facilitating their arrival in Leeds to hosting events that help students settle in. These exciting roles will allow you to represent the University of Leeds and positively impact our new international students’ first impressions of our University community. 

Find out more about Lead International Welcome Assistant and International Welcome Assistant roles available.

Support at the University

There is plenty of support available to you at the University, including academic, financial, and mental health support, and anonymous reporting tools for any incidents of concern. To find out more about the services and support you can access, check out the Support at the University webpage here. 

Litter Picking at Residences

If you would like to help keep the area around your halls looking lovely and litter free, join one of the Clean the Street litter picks! 

There are currently litter picks taking place at Devonshire Hall and James Baillie, but if you would like to start your own Clean the Street litter pick at another hall, please email who can point you in the right direction. 

The litter pick for Devonshire Hall and James Baillie meets each Wednesday at 5pm outside Hyde Park Book Club! You do not have to commit to volunteering every week, but all volunteers are welcome!
