Leeds has rightfully gained its reputation as one of the greatest student cities in the UK, offering students that visit from abroad or domestic students a fantastic experience whichever University you attend. 

As a first year student, looking for student accommodation in Leeds, the general tradition is to go into University or private halls of residence. There are some amazing residences including Vita Students or the Foundry both of which we list. Following a stint in halls students generally look for student accommodation in Hyde Park or Headingly choosing shared student housing instead. 

Home to both Leeds Beckett University and Leeds University, Leeds has a student population of over 60,000 students making it one of the largest student cities in the UK. It’s no surprise therefore, that away from study groups and university lectures, Leeds is well known for being an exceptionally lively and vibrant city. Shopping in the city is a dream, with hundreds of independent shops in the Kirkgate Market, all the way through to more boutique options. For those looking for some fun, to blow out the cobwebs after a hard day in the library, the bar and club scene is Leeds offers students an experience like no other in the UK.

One the accommodation side, Leeds has a wide range of places to choose from, but as with many student cities the nicest places can be hotly desired and go quickly.
