When you join the School of Healthcare, you'll have access to 21st-century healthcare facilities, both on-site and online.
Clinical skills facilities
Our Clinical Skills facilities recreate an actual hospital ward with beds, ancillary equipment and washing areas to mirror the conditions in a real ward, including:
- an adult ward
- a paediatric and maternity ward
- an intensive care unit with simulated patients (SiM man and SiM woman)
- a large general ward, a maternity suite with Sim mum and Sim baby and our own a fully furnished flat with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom (and grandma and grandad occupants).
Take our 360 Tour
We have a new 360 tour so you can see and learn more about our practice skills facilities, simulated patients and hospital wards.
Our student zones comprise of two specially designed areas for you to focus on study and also unwind with friends.
The Study Zone incorporates the latest interactive technology in two group learning pods, enabling you to collaborate on joint projects. This area combines a traditional study environment with modern enhancements, including soft seating for small groups or individual use, within a soundproofed area.
The Chillout Zone provides a relaxing place for you to meet up with friends. You'll be able to catch up and unwind on comfortable sofas, easy chairs and enjoy a plasma TV within a full wireless environment. This popular community area was recently upgraded to include a gallery of art and memorabilia from Yorkshire artists such as David Hockney and Emily Sutton.
Miall Lecture Theatre
The modern Baines Wing represents a tasteful blend of Victorian architecture and includes the Miall lecture theatre, named after Louis Compton Miall, the first Professor of Biology at the University of Leeds. This outstanding lecture facility seats around 100 people and has been faithfully restored to its former 1890s glory.
The Baines Wing Cafe
We have our own dedicated cafe on the ground floor of the Baines wing, with friendly staff and a great range of hot and cold food. This is furnished with comfortable group seating areas and shared PCs if you need to catch up on any tasks.
Baines cafe has longer opening hours with an earlier 8am opening to allow you to refuel before and after a long study day. You'll even have access to our own private courtyard, which is a popular meeting place for many of our students, especially in summer.
Our online facilities are available to you to support your studies or placement. The University portal provides access to a wealth of resources, including email facilities, announcements and library account access. Our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is used by all students to provide remote access to course materials and learning resources, allowing you to submit work for marking and much more. This will become part of your life as a Healthcare student and will help you to stay organised and informed about your course and schedule.
You'll have wide range of access to IT and support across campus. The Baines Wing is within a few minutes stroll to outstanding University IT facilities at the Laidlaw Library, the Parkinson 24-hour facility, the world-famous Brotherton library and the refurbished Edward Boyle library.
