    i think the gas, electricity heating etc r all included in the rent. not sure about the whole payment situation. im paying for mine with part of the bursary i get for my course and my mum and dad will be putting money in my account to cover the rest of the costs.

    Are you going to be paying for the room or your parents ?
    If you are, you have to pay for the entire rent. You'r student loan will give you enough to cover the rent, but you won't have much if any left over. Rents usually paid in 3 parts, One at the beggining, one around Jan, and one around April, you can choose to pay it monthly though.

    Haven't got a clue bout the bills etc, most halls will cover those expenses.

    Hope that helps!

    heya! I've put non smoking, mixed and fairly sociable too !! Has everyone applied for studio flats though? I've applied for an ensuite room, normal not deluxe. Anyone else done the same?
    I emailed asking a few questions like prices for the club, and they said they weren't 100% sure but around £25 a month!

    Yeh that bothered me too at first. But Opal court is a lot closer to the town centre than Kirkstall, so we can go round town!! Don't worry we'll make it fun

    is opal court for leeds uni and leeds met students?

    saw u were tlkaing about liberty park too. i got to have a look around on the open day and its put me off! the security is good, altho u have to sign every visitor in and out. the flats r nice, rooms r ok, bit smaller than i thought but the ensuites are tiny! they r like portaloos in ur room. not the nicest ive seen.

    ill be studying at civic quarter - think im gona either apply for opal court or mill street?
