    Hey, I'm currently trying to decide my accommodation for Leeds starting in september, but there's so many choices on the website and I haven't managed to go to an open day! Would anyone please be able to help me out?

    I'm looking for en-suite, self catered accommodation with a lively atmosphere. I am flexible on the price. So far I've liked the look of James Baillie Park, Leodis and Henry Price.

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    If you're looking for an en suite, Henry Price probably isn't the best choice; there are only a few en suite rooms and we reserve those either for students with a medical requirement or to use as twin rooms for the first few weeks if there are more students than rooms. Twin rooms would only be offered to people coming through clearing or who had missed the deadlines. (unless two friends/siblings specifically requested one).
    Having said that, bathrooms at Henry Price are whats called "Jack and Jill" bathrooms i.e. entered from and shared between 2 rooms. So not that different to an en suite really. And you would always be sharing with the same gender (so I suppose it should more accurately be "Jack and Jack" or "Jill and Jill" )

    Hope that helps

    Hi,

    I have a quick question. My friend and I both firmed Leeds and were both thinking of living together. I was wondering what would happen if we decide to choose the twin rooms and if one of us didnt meet the requirements? would one of us still get the twin room?
