hello, i'm deciding between leeds and southampton. my main concern is regarding women safety. i've read a lot about crime rates in leeds and they mostly talk about petty crime, but if anyone can give me an idea of what it's like to live in leeds as a woman and how safe it is from that perspective that would be really helpful. the same goes for southampton, though I haven't heard much about petty crime there. i know every city has good and bad areas, and i've checked the stats, but i'd like an opinion from someone who's lived in these cities and can guide me better. thank you

to be honest, Hyde park and this one street idk the name of has a really bad reputation.
But I go to Leeds and I have friends who live in Leeds who have never had an issue.
I'm not going to promise that if you live in leeds, NOTHING is going to happen to you because I simply can't guarantee it but nothing has happened to me or my friends
If you're travelling late, just travel with someone etc (those are just general safety rules anyways- not specific to Leeds).
Hope this helps

thank you so much ! if it's okay with you, could you give me an idea of safety during nights out and such? Do I need to be extra cautious at clubs or is it only general safety concerns I need to be careful of? Will I be able to go for late night walks around the campus area (avoiding hyde park)?

mmm I'm a muslim so I cant really comment on clubs/nights out since I don't do that stuff sadly
I do have friends who go clubbing and i've not heard of any bad stories so if that's of any comfort?
Of course, you always do need to careful but I think walking around campus is fine. I have friends who stay in the library till late at night and they've not faced any trouble walking home.
Like I said, for safety purposes, try your best to always walk/travel with someone when it's late
