    Might sound a bit of a **** bear with me:p:

    Im considering going to Leeds next year from Ireland as they dont do the course i want in Ireland (except for DCU, but that has a sh1t rep for nightlife )

    Did anyone here first go to leeds without knowing anyone?
    Is it hard to make friends?
    (I wont know anyone in the UK whatsoever when i arrive)
    I would like to live in the campus accomidation so i can meet people to go out and get pissed with:p: How many people usually live together there?

    Is the nightlife really as good as i have heard? 40000 students how bad can it be:woo:

    I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of people going, without knowing anyone else in the city. As pretty much everyone is in the same boat, I'm sure you'll be okay making new friends, just get chatting to people in the same accommodation/lectures/places as you!
    The nightlife in Leeds, indeed, is brilliant.

    According to the website, the on campus accommodation places are as follows
    Henry Price Building - 335 places, self catered, flats between 8 and 9
    Ellersie Hall - 120 places, catered
    Lyddon Hall - 145 places, catered

    Then Charles Morris will be open in 2010

    I can guarantee you'll make friends! Go to Boddington if this is of particular worry to you because there are thousands of people there.

    You'll be fine mate, I came over from Belfast and knew no one. The accent will win friends if nothing

    Also join socities, join the Irish society for example and branch out from there making friends.
Could you cope without Wifi?
