You can choose to either live in University accommodation, or you can choose to live in independently or privately owned accommodation. Single first year undergraduate students and all single international (non-EU) students are guaranteed a place in University accommodation provided you have confirmation of your place and you submit your application in time.
University accommodation is plentiful and varied, from converted Victorian homes to multi-storey blocks, with a full range in between. Half of the rooms available are en-suite with the other half having a bathroom you will share with a couple of other people. You’ll also have access to a kitchen and all University accommodation provides internet access. The bigger complexes provide a wide range of facilities from bars, to squash courts and shops. They’re great places for meeting and socialising with other people.
To find out more about the options available please visit the University’s accommodation web site.
I live in halls at Oxley and it certainly exceeded my expectations. The grounds are beautiful with the University playing fields next door giving a great atmosphere at weekends when matches are on.

If you don’t want to live in University-owned accommodation there are many privately owned houses and flats in Leeds that are available to students to rent. We recommend that you visit Unipol.
Unipol provides price guidelines and other information that will help you assess the quality of available accommodation.
