    Hi guys, im applying for accommodation in 2015 and im torn between Devonshire Hall and Central Village (although I think I’m leaning more to Devs as it seemed more sociable on the open day and also quiet enough at the same time to get work done). I just have a few questions about Devs:


    1. do many arts students (i’m going to studying history) go there?
    2. does it feel distant/disconnected from the main campus (im interested in joining some societies and making good use out of the edge)?
    3. is it really full of yahs? i go to a state school but does that matter if im pretty sociable?
    4. does it matter if you dont play a musical instrument? (iv heard it has a rep for being particularly musical)


    and also about Central Village:
    1. is it really unsociable? iv heard its got a rep for being really antisocial and if so then i dont think id like it there
    2. is it really noisy? i want somewhere where i am going to be able to work because im doing history which has low contact hours
    if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated

    hey, im in dev at them moment and i would 100% go for it. you get such a great community feel which you don't get with the other halls. it doesnt feel far from the uni at all. i also went to a state school and it makes absolutely no difference. only one person on my floor plays a instrument here so i dont think thats an issue. theres a big range of what people study, i do chemistry and others on my floor do english, business, french etc

    hope that helps

    Hey thanks so much for replying are you involved in societies at the uni as well or do you do more stuff at dev? I really liked the community feel (one of the key reasons why i prefer it over central village) and just thought it was really nice in general but i'm also interested in getting involved in numerous societies so does it matter if you're slightly off campus or do you feel it makes no difference?
    Thanks again you've been really helpful

    no worries yeah im on the hockey team for the uni and it makes no difference about not being on campus. i feel like it i was on campus i wouldnt get to see any other parts of leeds so i feel like its a good thing. personally im not that involved with anything to do with dev a few of my friends are on the dev committee and love it. we have lots of formals which are lovely and free. and have more additional things than anyone else, like our gym and tennis courts etc.

    its really great!

    thanks, think im going to go with Devs!
    one last question (sorry haha), someone raised it in another forum, are the formals for everyone or just the catered students (because I'm going to go self-catered)

    Excited to be in Devonshire, I got North Lawn J2.15

    Has anyone visited the North Lawn rooms? How do they look?
    Hey, I just got my accommodation offer for the J2.1 flat too for Sept '16 and I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about it? I know it's been a while but anything would be much appreciated!
