Best Locations for Student Accommodation:

  • Hyde Park
  • Headingly
  • North East of the City Centre


The majority of students tend to live in Hyde Park and Headingley which are only about a 5 minute bus ride from University and a 15 minute bus ride from town. Indeed, due to excellent transport links it is very easy for students to travel to and from University. Other northern cities such as Bradford and Manchester are nearby and easily accessible using public transport.

Parking and Permit Information:

If you live in an area where you require a resident parking permit this is easily acquired by filling in the required parking services forms. Permits are available for the vehicles that are registered at the address and you are also allowed a visitor’s permit.

Living in Leeds:

Leeds has endless possibilities and is therefore a popular University and City for students to live in.

Leeds has a vast amount of shops and markets both indoors and outdoors. The Kirkgate market has over 800 stalls so if vintage is your style you can flourish in this location! Furthermore, with five indoor shopping centres there really is something for everyone!

As well as this, Leeds can also offer students a cultural experience with a range of museums, galleries and theatres.

The nightlife in Leeds is second to none and there are a variety of bars, clubs and music venues for all students to enjoy. Some of the best locations for bars and nightclubs are Call Lane and the Northern Quarter. There is a huge number of pubs from the traditional Dry Dock to a very classy cocktail bar in the Northern Quarter called Mojo. The majority of nightclubs in Leeds are scattered across the city but two of the most popular clubs are Gatecrasher and Oceana.
