I'm choosing between Henry Price, James Bailee and Montague Burton for my Leeds accomodation .

Which is the best for ....

1. social life/partying/easiest to meet people
2. not likely to be too oversubscribed

Iv'e heard Montague Burton can put you in flats of 4 and worried socialising will be harder there. Also is it okay having a shared Bathroom?

Iv'e heard that James Bailee is really fun but might have very druggy rep?? I don't mind a bit of that but not toooooo much as i dont rlly do drugs myself (but used to my friends doing)

Henry price seems good because of the big flats but I'm wondering whether having no common room makes meeting people harder / it is often to oversubscribed to get a place

To be honest I really just want to be with fun and open people who like to party and it not be too hard to meet people .... Thank you for any helpp!

Hi! I am planning on going to leeds too this year. From what I have seen the best for socialising is probably james bailee. But I have heard that montague burton and henry price is also- but this will depend on your flat.

Regarding your question about not being oversubscribed, I think that all of the ones that you have listed are going to be oversubscribed. JB and HP seems to be oversubscribed seeing the statistics (here is the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...FHULUr/pubhtml ). Montague has become more popular because of a YouTuber, but doesn't seem overly oversubscribed compared to others.

So if I were you, I would probably go for montague burton as that seems like the one you are more likely to get. Hope this helps!

No worries! Haven't officially firmed leeds yet, as in the process of changing my course. Probably will go for either, leodis, montague burton or white rose view.

Henry Price and James Ballie definitely have a much bigger reputation for being more sociable in terms of nights out/drinking whereas haven’t heard of Monty B being as centred around that. Henry price does have a grassy area with outside for socialising but no common rooms.

All three are oversubscribed, HP and JB have been known for being oversubscribed for a while and MB only in the last few years being oversubscribed and quite a few people being put in Devonshire hall or Oxley last year with them being a similar price point.
