Welcome to our new website!

Edge Website

We’ve recently launched our brand new website to reflect the wealth of facilities, sports clubs & expertise we have across all sport and physical activity at the University of Leeds.

Packed with new features, simple navigation and a bold new look the site will also showcase the new look for sport that has recently been revealed. You will be able to check through the latest exercise classes at The Edge, view profiles of all our personal trainers and quickly learn more about the 48 sports catered for at the University.

One of the key features of the site is its responsive design meaning that it responds to the device it’s being used on and resizes accordingly.  This will enable you to access information about our facilities on the go much more easily than before.

We’d love to know what you think of the new website – send us your feedback.

New look for Sport

Gryphons

We’re excited to announce that there is now a new brand for sport at the University of Leeds; Leeds Sport.

The new look for Sport along with the new website makes sport more accessible for anyone at any level to get involved. Whether it’s playing, spectating, coaching or volunteering there’s something for everyone at Leeds.

We have lots of exciting plans for Leeds Sport so watch this space!
