Accommodation available in Leeds
Liberty Park gives an exciting student experience, right in the heart of Leeds. You’ll only be a 10 minute walk from the city centre, and there are plenty of transport links right on your doorstep.
Liberty Park is on Marlborough Street, and it’s super secure and safe. Like all of our properties, your rent is all-inclusive – that way there are no nasty surprises!
Liberty Dock has the dual benefit of being both centrally located – it’s just a short walk or bus ride from the University of Leeds plus all of the other universities and the city centre – and also being situated in a beautiful area of the city; right on the water.
Leeds is exhilarating and the fun is non-stop. This Northern city is absolutely fascinating in that it rivals the likes of London whilst being cheap, cheerful and well within a student’s budget – you’ll find something fun to do on any night.
As you settle into your new home, we’ll be looking out for you – security is included in your rent as standard. We also include all of your bills as well, because we know there’s enough to think about as a student!
Leeds for students
Leeds is a sophisticated commercial centre with a vast history and an ever-changing modern landscape. With links in industry set to rival London, there are plenty of opportunities for its residents and students alike.
In fact, Leeds is a city defined by its students. There are thousands upon thousands of them at four main universities; University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Trinity University and Leeds Arts University. You will also find Leeds City College as well.
Vibrant and exciting, friendly and fun, it’s also a city which won’t cost you an arm and a leg to be there. You’ll be surrounded by like-minded people and you'll have plenty to see and do. Like many undergraduates before you, there is a high chance that even after your days with us at our student accommodation in Leeds are done, you’ll never want to leave this wonderful city.
Food in Leeds is absolutely mouth-watering, and that’s a fact. From steaks to street food, it’s unlikely that you’re ever going to starve, especially if you’re a carnivore!
But vegetarians should never fear either, because in Leeds you’re not going to be left out. Lots of Indian restaurants and even delicious vegetarian-only establishments are fabulously free of any meat in sight.
Of course, you can’t live in Leeds without visiting Trinity Kitchen once in a while. Nestled at the top of the giant shopping mall, it has over 30 cafes and restaurants for you to sink your teeth into, as well as ‘street food’ and other delicacies to suit all tastes and budgets. From burritos to baltis, fish to ribs, it’s all there under one amazing roof.
For a more sophisticated evening out, the recently developed Waterfront is now a dining quarter and restaurants, cafés and bars also surround by the Millennium Square.
Things to do
It’s a shopper’s paradise in Leeds, a place where great shopping facilities exist literally everywhere. There’s the Corn Exchange, Granary Wharf, the amazing Trinity Leeds, as well as Victoria Quarter for those student loan days when you’re feeling flush. Independent stores mix nicely alongside major retail outlets, all having their space to thrive in the heart of the city centre.
Looking for something else to do? Cinephiles will be awe-struck by the gas-lit Hyde Park Picture House, offering a unique cinema experience, and they’re also able to visit both Vue and the Everyman, which also adds something a little different to your film-going adventures. And Leeds United play over at Elland Road, so if your weekends aren’t complete without a little footie action, look no further!
Call Lane is a street choc-full of bars, for a more laid-back affair before hitting some clubs, which the city has plenty of. Leeds is well-known for being a little offbeat and trendy, so you’ll find everything from wild student nights to alternative clubs and your brilliantly low-key Northern nights out.
Arts & culture
For those who want their time in Leeds to be a rather more cultural experience, you won’t be lacking in things to do either. The Abbey House Museum, the Royal Armouries, and Leeds City Museum are just three of Leeds’ museums, so you can carry on learning even after class. If art is your thing, Leeds Art Gallery is worth checking out, and there are many other theatres worth visiting – including Leeds Playhouse.
Leeds’ worst-kept secret is its impressive music scene, where music lovers can enjoy modern pop, rock and so much more at live venues across the city, plus top DJs at the clubs. Check out national and international bands at venues including the O2 Academy, Key Club, Brudenell Social Club and Leeds University Union.
Leeds Festival and Slam Dunk Festival are two major players on the live calendar not just here in England, but to the envy of millions worldwide. Luckily, they’re right on your doorstep when you stay at our student housing in Leeds!
Health & wellbeing
Want to get fit for free or just get back to nature? The Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors and the Vale of York are within easy reach of our student flats in Leeds. In the city itself, you can still enjoy a stroll around, with Roundhay Park being an excellent choice.
Cycling is easily possible and is encouraged thanks to the introduction of cycle lanes, which serve as a proud memory of the 2014 Tour de France which started from Leeds.
Finally, there are plenty of sporting facilities all over the place, including an extreme sports centre called Xscape just outside the city where you can go snowboarding. Plus like many UK cities, low-cost gyms can be found in the city centre with ease.
Buses provide a cheap and cheerful way of getting out and about, with services often running well into the night. They’re fairly priced and there’s a student MCard available too.
If you’re taking a trip to friends dotted around the city, you can also pick up cheap tickets to nearby Burley Park or Headingley stations with your railcard.
On the way home from a night out, you’ll be pleased to know that taxis and ride sharing services are prompt and affordable. You can be dropped right at the door to your student halls in Leeds and have enough left over for breakfast in the morning!
If things go a bit wrong, Amber Cars will even take you home without any cash – you just have to leave your student card with them and go and settle the fare at your Student Union the next day.
