Hi,

I applied late for Leeds accommodation and I've found myself in a position where I don't know when I'll find out if I get student accommodation. Does anyone have any advice on this situation? Is there anyone else in this position?

I'm so worried!!

Hi Ruby, I'm in the exact same situation. The only difference is that I just received an email today that I won't be getting a room in the Uni residences. What programme will you follow?

Hiya, I've been waiting for an email from them, did you apply through clearing?

No, I didn't. At least I don't think I did (sorry, not from the UK --no clue what clearing is).

Fingers crossed that's not the case for you then! Unipol has lots of private lettings, the problem is that there's too much choice and I won't be able to visit any of them before coming to Leeds (which will be mid Sept)...

Hi! did you apply through clearing or were just late with accommodation? I got a place in clearing and worrying about where I'm going to live! They said I'm on the waiting list but I don't have much hope that they'll find me a place… Have you been looking at private accommodation etc??

Hey I'm coming in through clearing too and got this email today when I sent off my accommodation form (not sure if you guys got this email too so thought I'd share it sorry if you all already know this)


"We hope that we will be able to find you a permanent single room within our halls of residence. If we are unable to do so,*we may be able to house you temporarily in a shared room until a single room becomes available and/or invite you to a mixing day where we will assist you in finding private accommodation in partnership with Unipol - a housing charity affiliated with the University of Leeds that specialise in student housing. There are approximately 4000 vacant student beds in Leeds so you will definitely be able to find accommodation with other freshers."

So it sounds like if they can't offer us uni accommodation they will help us find accommodation elsewhere from what I understand?

Hope this helps someone if they didn't get this email

Ooh thanks for that . I never got that email. Does anyone know if the unipol private accommodation is near the uni or will it be a case of commuting ? Am seriously considering just doing that because I fear I will run out of time if they are saying they will reply by 11 September (week from freshers)

I applied early for accommodation but I still don't know where I will be living. I'm worried because I'm an international student.

They said on their page that they'd guarantee uni housing for freshers and international students, so I'm sure you won't have to worry. ;-)

Hi guys, I too applied late and got an e-mail from the accommodation office stating they couldn't house me. Unfortunately I have no clues at all and most private halls are also full. Any advice about where to look? Are you people still searching?

Yes, I'm still searching. I think most private properties are still unleased though, so I'm sure we'll find something ;-).

Some private student halls are still available. If you don't want to stay in private properties, maybe take a look at Pennine House or Algernon Firth.

For private properties, I heard from some current students that it is best to take a look at the house before you sign anything, as there are more than a few fishy real estate agents in Leeds. I once talked with a Postgrade student, and he said that the school sometimes has temporary emergency rooms for students who arrive in Leeds without accommodations. (However, I would suggest that you email to check this out with the school accom people first about the school's temporary stays.)


Best of luck.

Perhaps it's good to give them a ring to see what's up? Just to be sure?

I just applied late. Yeah I'm in the same position though but I'd just prefer if I did have to get private I was with other freshers. I rang last week and they said last year 40 people didn't get halls. I've not looked at much to be honest

Same, everything I've found is with 2nd/3rd years and don't really want that. hopefully they'll have some spaces in halls!
