"I am pleased we've got something sorted now," Hulse told the club's official website.
"I have had a brilliant couple of months here and it was just nice to get back into playing again at a fantastic football club.
"I am looking forward to the challenge next year and I think we have got a hell of a chance of promotion."
Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell hailed the capture of Hulse, insisting it proved the club's ambition.
"Signing Rob Hulse shows that the club is coming out of the terminal decline it was in and we are serious about moving forward," he stated.
