    I went there on the open day and it seemed ok. Flats with 5 rooms I think. Big kitchen, rooms were a bit small. Bathrooms were a bit icky. Didnt like the bars on the window thing going on. It seemed a bit claustrophobic for me. But I heard its meant to be very social cos its big and alrite for a yr.

    My brother is at Leeds now in St Marks...he applied for accommodation really early, applied for Montague Burton and didn't get it. He said a lot of the people in St Marks applied for Montague but didn't get it and got put in St Marks instead. So I'd guess it's pretty good, but quite highly sought after.

    I'm there now, i'm not sure what you want to know.

    It's very close to the university, it takes about 5 minutes to walk to the Parkinson building (one of the main buildings of the university) and within about 10 minutes you're right on campus.

    Internet's included in accommodation. No en-suites, just sinks in rooms. Flats are shared in groups of 5. The toilet and shower are in separate rooms. I've seen some small rooms and some rooms are big - it's just the luck of the draw.

    There are blocks of flats from A - N (but no I Block) you can gain access to any of these blocks with the your flat key, but not gain access into the actual flats. There is no communal lounge or anything like that; which may be a dis-advantage.

    If there's anything else you want to know, ask away.

    It seems that is what happened to a lot of people who are in St Marks now. It kinda puts me off bothering to choose accommodation (if i go there) if I know that chances are it will be done randomly anyway.
