1. Tour the facilities

We can talk until we’re blue in the face about our world-class facilities here at Leeds College of Music, but that’s not quite the same as seeing them for yourself!

Performance, production and business students will have the chance to see our top-notch rehearsal rooms, Steinway piano suite, multiple Mac labs, unique performance spaces and demos in our state-of-the-art studios. Grab a tour from 11am – 4pm!

Drama students will spend most of the day in our brand new, purpose-built dance and drama studios in our new building, LCoM at Playhouse Square, with an opportunity to join the wider campus tours later in the day.

5. Tour the accommodation

If you’re moving away from home for the first time, it’s vital to get a feel for where you’ll be living, and start to imagine yourself in your new home!

The tours take place from 11.00am - 4.30pm and will cover our two partner accommodation sites; including Joseph Stones House - our right-on-campus accommodation.

You can also see One Mill Street, which features an on-site gym, lockable bike storage and a landscaped garden. Both sites not only ensure easy access to the conservatoire, but they’re just a short walk into the heart of Leeds city centre – so you’ll have everything you need, right on your doorstep!
