    Im hoping to do Accounting/Finance, I've never been drunk, not because I'm not a party person, I am, but I just dont want to get drunk, I party and I'm quite sociable. However, I'm easily distracted so need a place that can be quiet but not boring. A place with good WiFi is a must loool and not too expensive. Preferably on campus or a short distance from campus. Self catered, I'd rather cook for myself. Also how much do you pay for buses in Leeds? So many questions

    Maybe we can help you - we certainly meet your criteria we have free 100Mbps WiFi, affordable accommodation and we are only 4 minute walk to the Leeds University.
    The Studio flats are perfect for when you want to be alone, and when you feel like socialising why not pop in to the common room for a game of pool or watch films on our 85inch TV. We also have a quiet study area for when you want to concentrate on your studies.

    Our studios all have fridge/freezers, microwave ovens and hot plate tops so you can make yourself a meal or if you would prefer we can recommend local takeaways for those days you just need fast food.

    Survived first year without a drop of alcohol! Wooop wooop.
    En-suite bother you or not? That will change my suggestions. Also as far as expense goes, for en-suite you'll be looking around the £125 a week mark self catered. Shared bathrooms are obviously cheaper.

    As a business student Henry Price is the closest accommodation but has what they call 'Jack and Jill' bathrooms, where you share a small bathroom with the room next door (will be the same gender as you). You share a kitchen with quite a lot of people though. But honestly, you could roll out of bed and into your seminar (lectures are a bit different, they're all over campus)

    I lived in Sentinel towers, which is about 13 minutes walk to the business school, the tannery is also suggested for business school students. Accommodation is as interesting or as boring as you make it. Sentinel and Tannery have common rooms. But henry price is super close to the union. I barely left my room so I found it rather boring

    Buses are usually £1 each way to most the places you will want to go (only certain services though) if you get on first buses that the uni doesn't have a deal with they can be stupidly expensive, like £3.60 for 1 mile

    I think most halls will have a fair amount of noise, and therefore also the chance to get to know your flatmates and socialise (though alcohol is usually involved in socialising, so get ready to talk to a lot of drunk people whilst not being drunk!). The self catered accomodations that I know of near campus are henry price, central village, leodis, montague burton. Also as the previous commenter says Sentinel towers and the tannery but I don't really know anything about those. Henry price is definitely the closest and I would say it is a sociable halls as you share with 8/9 others, but it can get pretty loud. if you're living near campus, you probably won't need to use the bus too much - I lived in montague burton this year and I've never taken a bus! Uni campus is near enough to town and hyde park/headingley that if you don't mind walking for 20 minutes you don't need to get buses

    I'm one of those weirdos who doesn't like the taste of alcohol I know people say 'no-one LIKES it' but even fruity alcoholic drinks just taste nasty D: so it was pretty easy to cope but I did end up with a drunk flatmate laying on my bed crying during freshers week...
