    Hi everyone,

    I've put a deposit down for Pennine house for a studio as I don't fancy living with flat mates and I like my own space (I'm a first year by the way). Just wanted to see if I could meet anyone on here before I move in. By the way, I am aware of the bad reviews, but I have been told it is undergoing new management and new maintenance so it should be decent when I move in.

    Hi there, I did get here and overall I am happy with my flat ! There is still however construction going on outside and some issues with rubbish waste as there aren't enough bins outside. Also, it isn't the most social and can get a little lonely if you don't enjoy your own company because no one really speaks to each other as everyone is in their 2/3/4/postgrad years, and most of them are international students (middle eastern,Chinese) and seem to prefer to keep to themselves. But overall I'm happy

    If you have a look on the collegiate AC page for Pennine house Leeds it should say if any are available you need to put down a 250£ deposit and also if you don't have a uk based guarantor you will need to pay the full year up front x one other issue is management, they are not the most organized and can sometimes be hard to get in contact with

    Wow really?! Where are you from ? If your funds won't be ready until next week you will probably have to stay in a hotel. Don't worry about arriving at Leeds, the airport is tiny !

    If you walk down the street where the road is under construction you'll see the main entrance. Reception is open Monday to Friday 9/5
