Leeds students who have not had a coronavirus jab are being encouraged to book one at a campus clinic.
Leeds Beckett University's vice chancellor says his institution is working with the University of Leeds to offer vaccinations to students returning after the summer.
As Freshers' Week gets under way, Prof Peter Slee says he is "delighted" to be welcoming students back to campus, without most of the restrictions that dominated last year.
Prof Slee told BBC Radio Leeds: "The difficulties that students have faced have been mirrored across all parts of society - lockdown was very different for everyone.
"It's not just about being able to go out - its about social learning and being together in the same place."
Emily, a second year student in Leeds, said she was looking forward to celebrating Freshers' Week, as she did not get the chance to last year.
Sshe added: "It wasn't the same experience compared to other years. We went with high expectations, but you could only go to the pub, you couldn't go clubbing."
Despite the lifting of restrictions, some teaching will still not take place face-to-face and students are being urged to take precautions, such as wearing masks and using hand sanitiser.
