    Only a few people say it's nice and it's from like 4 years ago, others say try to avoid it. So i thought i should choose other places...? And do you think it's too late to go for henry price? i just want to stay on or near campus and crossing out the expensive ones these are the only choices i have. please help!

    I've never known of anyone to live in the smaller residences
    It's not too late to apply for Henry price - Leeds don't do a first come first served situation so everyone has an equal chance to get the accommodation they want
    Montague Burton or Leodis might also be good for you - they really aren't far from campus

    Thanks a lot!
    One more question though, it is possible to change accommodation during semesters or will I have to stick with it the whole year?

    I think there's something where after a few weeks you can change, but only if you find someone willing to swap with you

    I live in smaller residences! I'm in a 16 person house. Rooms are bigger than halls enough and toilets and showers to accommodate us all. On campus too, which is great, so no spending money on bus fairs. Own washing machines too, so no spending money on those either.
    Only hassle is Morrisons is about 15 mins walk away which is a bit far to carry heavy bags. However there is a small tesco and the union shop essentials on campus and tesco five mins away, but more expensive.
    I'd say go for smaller residences if you want a social life without all the hassles of halls (e.g. loud music all the time).
    Also, you can swap halls. I lived in Lupton and moved to smaller residences. You can either swap with someone else, or transfer. I transferred to an empty room.

    Thanks for such details! I chose other halls but it nice to know that I can transfer later.
