If you are unhappy with the response you are given, or if you feel your complaint is very serious, you can use our formal complaints procedure. Download the formal complaint form here.

If your complaint is valid, it will be investigated, evidence gathered and those involved may be asked to provide evidence, although no formal hearings will be held.

You will then receive a written response within 15 days. This response will cover the findings of the investigation, any mitigating circumstances and appropriate further action. If your complaint is upheld it will detail any further action being taken. If you complaint is not upheld you will be informed that you have the right to raise the complaint with the Independent Complaints Officer of the University of Leeds.
