Leeds Beckett University accommodation
Leeds Beckett University is home to almost 25,000 students who come from all over the world to study a wide range of courses – and when you stay in our student accommodation in Leeds you’ll truly experience everything that this modern higher education establishment has to offer.
As one of the largest universities in the UK, Leeds Beckett University is home to almost 25,000 students who come from all over the world to study a wide range of courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Until recently, this central Leeds University was named Leeds Metropolitan University, but the name was changed to reflect a new and improved era for the institution as well as its heritage, too. Don’t be alarmed if you still hear locals referring to it as ‘the met’ though – change can be hard for people to adjust to!
Leeds Beckett University is a wonderfully diverse place to spend your student days, and you’ll feel very included no matter who you are. There’s a large population of international students, too, and you’ve got the opportunity to explore your horizons by studying abroad. The University prides itself on great relationships worldwide.
When you stay in our Leeds Beckett University accommodation you’ll truly experience everything that this modern higher education establishment has to offer.
There are two campuses at Leeds Beckett University, one in the city centre, and one in Headingley. Our Leeds Beckett University accommodation is perfect for students at the city centre campus, although regular and easy public transport links will connect you to Headingley in just a short amount of time.
Leeds Beckett University has some absolutely brilliant resources, including a range of buildings across the city centre which are perfectly equipped to kit you out for your future career. There are state-of-the-art laboratories in addition to music, performing arts and film studios, and plenty more depending on your course. When it comes to libraries, there are not one but two provided by the University and they’re both open 24 hours a day.
If you’re looking for facilities to undertake a range of exciting activities, look no further. Sports and fitness enthusiasts will relish in the Carnegie Sports Centre which hosts everything you need to stay in shape, join a team or simply have fun.
There’s a great deal of support offered to new students at Leeds Beckett University, and as a result it’s the perfect place to undertake an undergraduate degree. There are an abundance of courses you can apply to, so you’re bound to find the perfect fit to prepare you for your future. Plenty of these courses are vocational as opposed to strictly academic, so you’ll be gaining real-world skills which will be vital after you graduate. There are even thousands of paid placement opportunities available each year.
When it comes to student satisfaction, the University is one of the most popular and well-loved in the UK. You’re also really likely to find employment once you leave, as the University sets up the majority of its students for fantastic careers ahead.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.
Liberty Living joined the Code of Standards to give our students peace of mind. You can be assured that you will enjoy a high standard of living in accordance with the Code of Standards, and a prompt resolution to problems should they ever occur when you stay at any of Liberty Living’s residences.
Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
