Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Congrats on the offer!

From what you've mentioned I think that either Henry Price or James Baillie would be the best fit as they are definitely two of the most social accommodations. But they are also the most oversubscribed so you are far from guaranteed your first choice of accom if you choose any of those two. You'll have to weigh up if you think it's worth taking the chance of placing one of those two as your first choice as you only get allocated alternative accommodation based on your preferences that you select when you apply (i.e. you can't choose a second or third choice). Personally, I'd just go for it though.

Hope that helps.

Howdy Georgia!

I'm currently a student @ UoL and have visited a fair few of the accommodations now. Having experienced the system in which halls are assigned, I can only encourage you to not pick one of the oversubscribed accommodation halls. I've met/heard of far too many people who were given Oxley and Liberty Dock which are miles out of town and quite frankly, not the greatest of places to live.

If you're looking for a great social life of meeting people, I suggest attending a hall that is non-catered, as you're in a forced environment of socialization due to the use of a shared kitchen! I personally live in Montague Burton and couldn't think of anywhere else I would like to live. It's all newly renovated, it's quite close to uni and it really has a homely feel to it! As far as other recommendations I think Leodis and iQ Leeds aren't too bad either, but wouldn't put them on the level of Monty B.

I wouldn't touch Oxley, Liberty Dock or The Tannery at all, personally. At the end of the day, your halls life will be what you make of it!!

I'm in Leodis atm. Its perfect. 10 min, if not less walk to uni. Super sociable and easy to get on with people in your block/flat opposite, as well as people in the whole accom. The problem with places like central village and cityside is theres loads of international students who dont want to socialise. Leodis is BIG rooms, you can move your bed and wardrobe, the ensuite is nice and so is kitchen. I haven't got a single complaint im so happy in leodis and was the best decision choosing here. Ive been to my other firends accom in leeds and I till think Leodis is the best all round.

I'm considering leodis for next year! One thing I would like to ask though, how is the soundproofing? Because I wouldn't want to be disturbed by noisy flatmates

I can hear sometimes the flat above if they’re moving a chair or something. Generally I can’t hear my flatmates either side of me unless they’re playing music.

I'd say go for Leodis, I've met a lot of people there who are happy with where they're living.

I was given Liberty Dock after applying to Henry Price and I'd just like to point out that getting put into Liberty Dock isn't such a bad thing. When I first found out I got put here I was quite upset as I'd read bad things about it and didn't look forward to living here, however once I actually got here and met my lovely flatmates, I'm quite happy with where I am. I can't speak for Oxley, however Liberty Dock is in a lovely area, we're close to the city centre, and although we are a bit far from uni, you get used to the distance after a while and realise it's not so bad. The accomodation itself is alright, the distance is the only issue. One of the reviews I read stated that Liberty Dock was quite antisocial as we don't have a living area, only a kitchen, however we haven't had any issues about being social and in fact we've had quite a few successful pres.

The point I'm trying to make is that although Liberty Dock and etc aren't the best accomodations around, don't be worried if you get put into one of them as at the end of the day it's your flatmates who will make your experience in halls a good or bad one. If I was given an option, I wouldnt pick Liberty Dock, however I've been lucky to have good flatmates who I'm able to be friends with and have a good time with here. I've met people at James Baillie (one of the more social accomodations) who say they're having a bad time because they don't get along with their flatmates. If you get put into a "bad" accomodation, don't let that stress you out, just try to make the best of the situation and I can guarantee that you'll have fun.

Maybe with the exception of oxley and lib dock as they're really far away, anyone you speak to at leeds will tell you their halls are the best halls! Go for the one you like the look of but honestly you could be anywhere and love it. I would just pick based on the features that are important to you (catered/self catered, ensuite/shared, close to campus etc.)

Does anyone know anything about IQ Leeds? I don’t want to pick accommodation that is oversubscribed and get an accommodation I hate but I also want to be with sociable people.
