Heya, so I've been stuck between these three for a while now to do my undergrad in Sept. 2017.
A little background info -- I've applied to English for all three, and Leeds and RH are offering me ABB but only if I make them my firm choice, with QMUL offering me ABB regardless.
Personally, I'm looking for a good city life (that's a must) as well as good opportunity to meet lots of different varied people (another must). Good facilities as well. And I'd love somewhere with quite nice accommodation, that doesn't look like an old person's holiday village xD oh, and preferably with mixed-sex accommodation too.
And clubs and societies too is something I really want to get involved in.
Anyone out there able to give me some advice about one or all of the unis? Feel free for this to be a battle of the unis xD
Leeds University, Royal Holloway or QMUL Watch

Hiya, I'm also going to uni in September, and I looked at all of these 3 with basically the same questions as you. Long story short I chose QMUL. Good city life is obvious with London, and when I went to look at RH it seemed really far away. Ever if you accept it's part of the Uni of London it's still quite a long journey on the bus and then train to get into London which I didn't like. QMUL on the other hand is walkable into central London, and the tube taking about 10 minutes to go anywhere you want.
Leeds is a good city and there's lots to do but I just clicked with London much more,, and there's always the chance that you'll find something that you love in London easier than in a smaller city.
The opportunity to meet varied people is so vast in East London, it's so culturally diverse, and what I liked is that the campus is going to be full of varied people but all students so your age and will have pretty similar aims to get out of uni.
Great facilities: access to loads of Uni of London resources at QMUL (RH too but it's a long journey), less good at Leeds, just with fewer choices I guess.
The accommodation is really good at all 3, I guess that's just up to you, but Leeds was my least favourite.
I hope that helped lmao, sorry it's a bit long.
