So I've just finished my application form and paid my deposit to stay in Opal for my first year at Leeds Met. I'll be studying Business Studies.
I was just wondering how many other of you guys have booked to stay there/are going to book to stay there, and if any of you are studying business at the rose bowl

I will be studying Economics at the Rose Bowl and am currently deciding between Opal 3 and The Plaza.

I wouldn't worry, there's like 5months yet. We're going to be there for 43 weeks, the work surely cant go on for like another 12 months!

Yes, i have bookings to veiw both on wednesday. I am currently leaning towards The Plaza as they have an offer which is £13 per week cheaper although the final decision will ultimately depend on how soon i can get the deposit and whether i can get a gurantor.

I've applied and paid for Opal 1/2

All the building work which is happening now will be complete by sepetember, and if you think about it for us its a good thing that it is being carried out.

Seeing things like that can be worrying! I've recently paid the deposit for Opal as well.

But if you think about it, the students writing on that page are only really going on there to complain, as it's the Official Opal page. Somebody who loves it there wouldn't go on there just to say how great it is, there's no reason to.
And because nearly every comment is a complaint, it looks bad, but in reality it's the small majority of the 1500 students living there!

It can't be that bad! But then again i'm not the kind to be fussy.

HEY

heading to Leeds Met in September, studying Graphic Design.Anyone accepted a place on this course?
Looking into student accommodation, broadcasting tower looks amazing but very pricey. So set on Opal. What do people think comparing opal 1&2 with opal 3? Also this building work seems like it would be a pain if it continues into september onwards.

It takes them over a month to change a light bulb so I wouldn't be so sure of that

I'm living in Opal 1/2 at the moment if anyone has any questions.
