He said: "I'm very excited about the prospect of returning to England and having another crack at the Premiership with a club like Gloucester, one with a great history but a bright future as well.
"I feel that my game has developed a lot while with Leinster and I know that I'll need to perform well as Gloucester already have a number of quality second rows."
Gloucester director of rugby David Humphreys said: "We're looking forward to welcoming Tom into our environment, and his arrival only makes us stronger as a unit.
"During his time in the Aviva Premiership with Leeds, he proved to be a quality operator, and he has matured and improved whilst with Leinster.
"I know first-hand from my time with Ulster what a quality opponent he is and he will be a welcome addition to our second row ranks."
