    Hi everyone!
    I am an international (Dutch) student, I got a conditional offer for Creative Advertising at LCA and I am really happy about that! Now of course, the accommodation dilemma. I have done quite a bit of research already and narrowed my decision down to two. Can anyone advice me which one would be the best : IQ or Liberty Park. My main goal is to meet a bunch of nice new friends and not be too far away from the city centre and the college. Of course the way the rooms look matters as well (we are all a bit shallow ). I can imagine that the first criteria can be done basically anywhere. If anyone has any other suggestions for accommodation please do!
    thanks!

    Hi have you tried looking at concept place? It's closer to LCA an it's cheaper and nicer than liberty park I was applying for liberty park but concept place is just so much better. It lets you pick your room too like if you wanna be with first years or second etc... Hope this helped

    Hello, I'm going to leeds college of art and i was unsure about what accommodation to go for so i went up and visited them and because i was looking at opal 3 as well. i would really recommend not going for opal 3, it looked so nice online but in reality it is awful, it smelt really bad and everything seemed broken. he showed us round a flat which people lived in and was banning on their doors loudly, the rooms didn't seem amazing and i personally didn't like the lay out. for a single bed room it is £115 a week. i then went to the plaza and looked around it seemed so much better and currently they are doing an offer where you get a queen size bed (3/4s bed - bit bigger than a single) and unsuite for £113 a week!! It seems so much nicer, the gym is better and they run classes, they have a nice social area and the layout seems less dark and grundgy!

    also the building opal 3 use has just gone into administration, so although they are still taking payments it could be risky.
    Hey thanks for replying! I'm leaning towards the plaza now, opal three sounds horrible haha, what are you doing at lca?

    Hello,

    I just accepted Illustration at LeedsCollegeOfArt and I'm really struggling between Liberty Park and Carlton Hill for accomodation. Has anyone been to see Carlton Hill? Is it better than Liberty Park? Also, am I the only illustrator here?

    Hi everyone,

    At Liberty Park we have a lot of College of Art students. We want to make sure your happy so any requests you have: all female, mixed, lower ground, top floor etc we will arrange for you.

    We are not as far as people think from the College, its about a 10/15 minute walk through the Uni campus - its still central Leeds! There is also a bus that runs directly outside a few times an hour for a £1 each way.

    If you have any questions at all just let me know

    Hey .

    Reading through the posts i have seen a lot of you are going to LCA in September to do fashion!
    i live really close to Leeds so i aren't moving out.. yet! but i did consider it and thought that Liberty was one of the best! you can get a bus from there to pretty much outside LCA, doesn't take long at all.. so, it's a good choice!

    everyone excited?! i can't wait!
