    Hey guys,

    I'm going to be moving up to Leeds at the end of summer to start the PGCE Primary Education course at Beckett.

    Just wanted to know what other post-grad and masters students that will also be new to Leeds are planning on doing for accommodation?

    I have considered going into university halls but from what I can see they seem to be quite expensive and I also don't want to end up living with freshers.

    I would preferably like to live in a shared house with other post-grad/masters students. Any advice on where to find possible housemates or student letting organisations that could help me with this?

    Or if anybody else is in the same position as me, feel free to message me so we could maybe form a group of people interested in living together?

    Will appreciate any advice as I don't have the first clue where to start and don't want to leave it till the last minute, thanks!

    You could always look at shared houses for students near the uni they seem to be a lot cheaper. I've applied to Leeds Beckett to do my masters this year and I'm in the same position of not wanting to be with freshers. I was told for other Uni's I have also applied for That the uni will place you in the accommodation with people of similar age..for example mature students and other postgraduates x

    Hello,

    I am international student moving to Leeds this September to start the MSc Civil Engineering course. I've applied for university accommodation. According to their regulations, you can choose to share with students who are above 21. They have allocated me in the Marsden house as it is more suitable for postgraduate students. If you decide to book your room in the Marsden hosue, you can choose to share with mature students. You can also send them a Student ID of someone you would like to share with. We, the postgraduate students, would be glad to share together. If you want, I can send to you my student ID. Its a pleasure.

    My course is also at Leeds Beckett. Regarding the shared rooms, the Marsden house does not have shared rooms. They have single en-suite rooms. The price is 132£/week. The tenancy contract is 43 weeks. This price includes all the electricity and water bills including a free wifi. However, if you're looking for shared rooms at lower prices, you should look for other accommodation buildings. There are various accommodation options published on the Leeds Beckett website. I think you'll probably share with freshers if you choose to live in shared rooms. In all cases, if you want to book a room, you should do this ASAP. The booking price is 200£. You can pay online. Don't hesitate to ask me if you have other questions. I'll be glad to help.

    Hi! Im doing a Masters in Criminal Justice & Criminology at Uni of Leeds. Apparently there isn't availabilty for university accomodation for postgrads. I have secured mine at IQ Leeds, seems to be the best option and also reasonably priced.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey,

    Are you still looking for accommodation? If you're looking to stay in private halls, we have a few rooms still available at our Burley Road student village.

    The Village is about 15 minutes' away on the bus (20 minutes if you're walking) from the University's campus, and just a 10-minute walk away from the city centre and all of its shops, bars and the train station.

    Our rooms are all en-suite and range from single bed rooms to newly refurbished doubles. We also have some exciting Village Life events kicking off in September (free BBQs, movies nights, and lots more) so it will be easy to meet your new neighbours.

    Let us know if you have any other questions! You can find more info on our website: https://www.mystudentvillage.com/uk/leeds/burley-road/
