Leeds like any other major city has its share of crime - but there is so much you can do to make sure that you stay safe - and getting home after a night out or late night study at the University is a key part of that.
It might seem quicker or cheaper to walk home through Hyde Park but it increases the risk to your safety, especially if you are on your own.
We would always suggest take a bus or a taxi instead of walking home after dark. Amber Cars are the Union’s recommended taxi service. If you end up stranded, with no money to pay for transport, you can give an Amber driver your student card instead, and collect it from the Cash Office in the Union three days later, in exchange for your fare money.
You can also get the LUU Nightbus which will take you from the Union to your door for just £1. You can book the Nightbus at the front door of the Union building with the security staff. The times vary, so it is best to check in the LUU Foyer but in term time it normally runs from 6pm.
