    I know of Royal park Flats (I live in the same area), it's on a busy road so may get noisy, but the entirety of Leeds is noisy
    I didn't even know Leeds uni owned the flats, but they've been refurbished over the summer so should be nice
    In terms of safety, you have a main front door, then the door for the flat, as long as you keep the second door locked you will be fine, its the houses that usually see crime because people don't lock the door behind them
    It's only post-grads in there, so the noise from other flats shouldn't be bad, decent 15 minute walk (uphill!!) to uni, plus there's a sainsburys across the road (24 hour one close by too)

    Thanks a lot for your response. I am very grateful for that it is really hard to estimate somewhere from comments and limited pictures. Have a nice day

    I'm sorry but assuring that one is safe for locking the door actually isn't that reassuring. For one, what about when you're on the street? Also, you have to rely on your flatmates being reliable with locking the door behind them, so it's not like you can blame someone who does make the habit of locking the door if someone else didn't.
