    Hi

    I'm starting the Psychology Course at Leeds Uni in September and was wondering what people thought would be best accomodation wise?

    I definately want to go self catered and be on, or fairly close to the campus itself - ensuite is also appealing, but now Im probably just being demanding!!

    Henry Price looked pretty good but I've heard mixed opinions on it - some say great, others say cold and cramped???

    I need advice from those who know, very badly!!!

    Thanks

    love

    im in the same position as you but with catered....finding a place which is on/near campus with the facilties i want/need.

    Henry price does look good. large but not too large (440ppl) and on campus.

    looks nicely kitted out.

    Clarence Dock is nice, I lived there, its a bit more pricey though. Not a big fan of Henry Price, purely because the buildings are big imposing '60's style concrete towers, not very appealing. You can't get much closer to campus though, excellent for those 9 o'clock lectures when your friends at Bodington have been up since 7 to get on the bus in time and you roll out of bed at 8:50 and into the lecture theatre!

    Boddington is definately the furthest - I think Clarence Dock looks pretty good too - right in the city centre as well!!

    Go for Clarance Dock, I know I'm biased but Bod seems to attract a certain type of very *****y girl!

    Hi! I'm coming to Leeds uni Business school this septemer to study for MA in advertising and marketing. So now I am also looking for a good place where to live. I will be very greatful for a good advice.
    Sentinel Towers seem to be cool as rooms are en-suite, it has internet and is within walking distance to the Uni. But they say on their web-site that it is especially good for the students who need peaceful environment. Why? Does it mean that there is no social life there and I will be bored and alone all the time?!?!? :confused:

    I looked round the accom on Sat, and to be honest Henry Price was a bit of a dump. Devonshire will be my choice.

    Exactly, I think the main thing that Henry Price has going for it is the fact that its so close to uni, a big plus when you consider places like Bod are about 5 miles away and you have to leave at 8 to have anychance of making it to a 0 o'clock lecture on time

    oh i see! sorry! well im personally applying to james baille. it's in a nice location and its got en suite facilities but the internet is pay as you go which isnt ideal. i didnt want to be on campus because i want to take my car and parking's limited there.
