    Yeah I had a textiles student take me around the place and she showed me her room, not a bad size at all (although her doorway was taken up by 20 odd pairs of shoes) Looked very clean etc...

    En-Suite was a good size, bigger than most of the others thats for sure!

    Kitchen was reasonable (this one was abit dirty but thats to be expected of students really, they will all be cleaned before the new academic year) got a shelf in both the fridge and freezer and your own cupboard for food and stuff, thats how they arranged it anyway. If people borrowed food they left each other notes saying what they borrowed and theyd go to the shop to replace whatever which is good. (Some accommodation do have locks on the doors though)

    Common room was a good size, again pretty clean, Free pool table and Sky on a widescreen TV with plenty of sofas and a couple of vending machines (I think if i remember correctly)


    All in all a good set of rooms, I just didnt like the area as you have a hill to contend with to get up to the Uni and its near alot of terraced back to backs (though you can dodge these nicely walking from the Uni I just had a little look around the area). Obviously favoured mostly by the women there due to ALL the rooms being En-Suite, all seemed very friendly and welcoming though!

    Hope this helps
    Thank you very much! You've been of great help! One last question: Do you know much about the Henry Price building? Any information would be great. Thanks! xx

    im applying for criminology and criminal justice which is in the law building right next to the business school, its meant to be fairly close to the western side of campus which is where we are, i asked on the open day and the girl said about a 15 minute walk, which will probably be about 30 minutes for me as im such a slow walker! im quite suprised its as undersuscribed as people are making out, it honestly seemed perfect, i prefered it to james baillie where rooms were basically the same, the location is much much better!

    i saw both! James baillies location was dead random down a long cobbled road, i will massively struggle with drink + heels ha. just thought it was a bit strange. The tannery location looks a bit rough around the edges, but coming from the countryside anything would! ive put james baillie as my second choice but really wanna go tannery

    Yea but with Jbp it's not too far from frequent buses in pretty much all the right direction. Tannery's easy walk to and probably better. I've applied for tannery but not sent off my app. I live close to a drug zone too so I'm not phased. I'm going to send it now. What was the kitchen like?

    rooms at JBP and tannery were the same along with kitchen. really clean fairly modern, en-suite was a fairly good size and there was storage underneath each bed at the tannery which is always a plus. tannery is also being refurbished for september in some rooms! so thats also a plus!

    sweet! Plus 10mins walk to town is a massive plus. Do you think people would be allowed to smoke in kitchens? I don't cos the smell bothers me, i have the potential to smoke weed . Basically not sure whether to say i do mind people smoking cos i can't take the smell but i wouldn't want to miss out on fun people just cos of that

    urmm i dont think so, im sure if im not mistaken there were non-smoking signs, ive said that i dont mind sharing with smokers but i do it sometimes socially anyway, smoking doesnt really bother me but it would if it was in kitchen so can understand why your concerned, guess it would just depend on the flatmates and how considerate they are!

    i've gone for the tannery now too but i ended up putting no smokers because despite being a smoker, i think it's kinda wrong to smoke inside!

    I don't smoke, i have no problem with smokers but i've said i do mind cos it's pointless inconveniencing myself if it bothers me.

    See you there

    bit silly really isn't it!
    maybe it has a bearing on how far away you are from the front door, easy access when drunk and in need of a cigarette haha

    yeah that's pretty good, isn't it surrounded by leeds met students though?
