This petition is designed to be sent to the necessary decision makers within Leeds Metropolitan University to stop the move from the Beckett Park Campus to the City Campus. There has still been no official notice that there is even a move, although teacher have been telling students that it is definate. From a student\'s point of view, we do not want to move to another campus and some have chosen Beckett Park specifically for its location and beautiful atmosphere. This also means that students will have to move mid course, interrupting current students to move from one campus to another. There has also been no mention of a move of the library, thus meaning that we would have to learn in one place and research in another. This is inconveniant for all and with support by as many signatures as possible, more can be done to stop this.

Claire Boddy, United Kingdom9 years ago Comments: I think it is an absolute disgrace the way Leeds Met have handled the move of the Law School. We have still not been told what is going on. We attended the meeting with the Dean to try and gain some information only to find the meeting had been cancelled without any notice. My housemates and I have just signed for a house in Headingley so that we could walk to uni only to find that we are no longer at Becketts Park. I am staying in Leeds to do the LPC. After the unprofessional manner in which Leeds Met have handled this issue, I would much rather study at the BPP who have a much higher reputation.
Maria Bagnall, United Kingdom9 years ago Comments: I am disappointed that Leeds Met have decided to do this especially as it has been so sneaky, many people will not even know yet! We have already signed for a house in Headingley costing more than other areas nearer the city and now we will have to travel miles and pay for extra bus fare! What about the people that drive here too, where will they park The whole thing is a complete joke and is all about money for the greedy VC and every person I have spoken to about it is against it.
