Anyone who attends the University of Leeds or Leeds Beckett University knows how much of a fantastic city Leeds is. Not only to study, but to socialise, network, try new things and to live. Whether you want to join the rowing team, hockey, theatre productions, volunteer or knit; there's something for everyone. With the opening of Trinity Leeds and loads of quirky, edgy new bars, it's always buzzing, no matter what day of the week it is.
With a student population of 60,000, a diverse culture with high academic standards and a wide range of accommodation it's not who you want to live with so much, but where...
The most popular student locations around Leeds include Hyde Park and Headingley. These areas are not only littered with bars, restaurants and shops, they’re also packed full with some of the best examples of student accommodation across the UK. These student houses are often only minutes from the universities and are often renovated to an extremely high standard.
As a Leeds University student I can really relate to the roller coaster journey of student life, the highs and the lows. Enjoy it, you will make friends for life and there is a great support group within universities for advice and those inevitable difficult times. Don't let house hunting be a burden. UniHomes make it quick, easy and simple for students like me and you so you can concentrate on enjoying Leeds rather than worrying about where you're going to be living year on year. Best of luck in your studies!

First year of university, you're put in halls; you move your stuff in, wave goodbye to mum and dad, and head wearily to the kitchen, with sweaty palms and the fear of the unknown, mixed with excitement. You're greeted with lots of new faces, beer, tunes and then the fun begins! Welcome to Leeds, you'll never look back.
