    Hey everyone

    I recently got allocated and assigned a room in The Tannery even though I applied to Charles Morris (I'm sure this has happened to many people before). Problem is I know nothing about the residence. Can someone please shed some light on the rooms, social life, distance from campus and other popular areas around Leeds? Also what the layout of the Tannery is like...(how many people live in each flat, how many floors, etc..)

    I'm an exchange student so I'm not familiar with the area at all. Anything is much appreciated, thanks!

What block are you in? I'm in A.

    I saw that website as well! I'm hoping it'll be good, the Tannery looks really nice. Out of curiosity what was your first choice? And where are you coming from?

    Hey, the tannery is a nice accommodation, having stayed there last year and now staying in a studio for this year, I can confirm it is a good choice (depending on your needs) There's about 5-6 to a kitchen, I was lucky to have a really big kitchen though (so if anyone is in block C 207 you're lucky :P ) Distance from campus can range from 10-20 minutes but seems much quicker..and a bonus is that it is halfway between campus and city centre..not like oxley which is a long bus journey! A bonus is that there has been renovations and a new common room- everything looks very modern.

    Thanks so much! Also what was the layout of the building? For example how many flats were on each floor/how many people altogether on the floor? It confuses me haha..

    Also was it easy to interact with people on your floor, even if they weren't in your flat or is it enclosed? I probably make no sense but pls let me know if you understand what I'm talking about haha

    No problem on my floor, there were 4 flats and there were 5 in our flat but I think you can get flats of 6 so you're looking at around 24 students max on each floor but the reality of you seeing this many people is probably only during freshers week. There are 4 blocks in total (A-D) ..and not sure how many levels, I know there were 7 in one block..because I was on the first floor I never really took notice. Also, it's difficult for me to say because I left a previous accommodation and only arrived in February. Although my flatmates had friends in other flats on the same floor and also in the block so it's definitely possible to interact with others around you.

    Another BlockC-er here. 210B.
    And a bit of a dull question... Does anyone know the situation with power-sockets in the kitchen? The pictures are about as obscure as the rest of the info for the Tannery, so its fairly hard to know what we actually get.

    It looks pretty good from the pictures I've seen, also you're allowed to put posters on the wall there, which is something not all the accommodation allows. I applied to Central Village but the Tannery is pretty much the exact same, just in a different building/location.

    Does anyone know what basic items we get when we move in? Like is there already a toaster, a frying pan or do we all have to bring those sort of items ourselves?
