The African-Caribbean Society (ACS) at Leeds is a society bounded by the celebration and education of black culture; a home away from home and a pathway to cultural enlightenment. There are no prerequisites to being an ACS member - not all of our members are necessarily from African or Caribbean backgrounds. Leeds University's ACS is simply a platform for like-minded individuals to come together, develop friendships, and enjoy cultural events and a number of opportunities exclusively available to members.

This year, we’re bigger and better and it is our chief aim to make Leeds THE place to be in 2017/18! There will be opportunities to celebrate the enjoyable social aspects of the modern Afro-Caribbean Diasporic community AND opportunities to develop and empower our members both in an educational and career-focused direction. Leeds University ACS: Empowering and Celebrating Our Culture.

The ACS works tirelessly each year to organize and present our members with some of the best nights the city of Leeds has to offer. There have been great socials, sports games, debates and movie nights. This year, we hope to spice up your social calendar even more, keeping you busy throughout the year! Make sure you don’t get left out of the loop by following us on Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!
