Leeds College of Art accommodation
There aren’t many independent arts schools in the UK, but of those that do exist, Leeds College of Art is a top choice – and with our student accommodation in Leeds you’ll be located in one of the best possible cities to inspire your creativity.
There aren’t many independent arts schools in the UK, but of those that do exist, Leeds College of Art is a top choice. In fact, it’s the top choice of independent art school in the whole of the UK, and as you might have guessed from its name, the institution is based in Leeds.
The community is close-knit and friendly and because of this ethos, you’re always encouraged by the positivity required to not only achieve your goals, but to grow and develop in the area of art which interests you most.
Leeds College of Art is proud of its reputation which has allowed such great artists as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth to study there, as well as Marcus Harvey, Damien Hirst, Danny Sangra and Omar Kashoura. This is not, however, a school which allows itself to rely on the past – Leeds College of Art is never complacent and works tirelessly to always lead in the areas they care about most. There are always room for more ‘big names’ – perhaps even you – but there’s a lot to be said about the many individual achievements which also happen as a result of a specialised education here.
When it comes to the staff, you’ll be well looked after. Not only are they excellent, the ratios are fantastic to allow for plenty of personal attention and the kind of advice and expertise that many others can only dream of.
There are plenty of degree options available from undergraduate to maters, and there is even the chance to take GCSEs or A Levels.
Students come from all over the word to seize the opportunity for artistic development. There’s a really welcoming atmosphere and it allows for students to fit in and be comfortable enough to do really well.
Our accommodation at Leeds College of Art is in such a fantastic location in a vibrant student city. You’re in one of the best possible cities to inspire your creativity.
With less than 1000 students every year, the numbers are somewhat modest for there to be an entire campus dedicated just for Leeds College of Art. The intimate amount of students simply highlights the prestige associated with the school and the honour that attending it can bring. The college has two sites in Leeds city centre.
However, Leeds itself is a bustling city with some of the highest numbers of students in the country. There is so much to do and inspire your studies, and plenty of facilities to keep you busy all the time.
As you might expect, there is an emphasis on art and culture, both of which Leeds has in abundance. The institution encourages seeing everything it has to offer as part of study.
Of course, every College or University should have a student union, and Leeds College of Art is no exception. They’ll help with everything from fitting in, to joining a club or society or even keeping fit.
Our Leeds College of Art accommodation is on the doorstep of both your College’s facilities and everything the amazing city itself has to offer, so you’re in for a great time and a full student experience.
There are a range of fascinating courses available to you at Leeds College of Art. You will be encouraged and pushed in the most supportive possible way to achieve your potential through a multitude of mediums, depending on the particular side of the artistic world that you wish to get into.
You will be challenged at every step to think outside the box, whether you want to study visual arts, multimedia, fashion or any other of the exciting courses on offer to you at undergraduate level. Teaching staff will impart their wisdom and expertise onto you and combined with your existing talents, this will help you to truly prosper. There will be a multitude of opportunities to make a name for yourself and get your foot on the ladder.
Our Leeds College of Art accommodation is perfectly located to ensure that you’re right on the doorstep of the incredible opportunities you’ll be blessed with over your time in the city.
Postgraduate study can give you an edge and help you to stand out from the crowd (which is great in the art world). There is only one postgraduate programme at Leeds College of Art, but it’s a powerful one which will give you the tools to really push the boundaries alongside other committed individuals like you.
The Master of Arts in Creative Practice has been devised for creative practitioners. Whether you’re a recent graduate or a working professional wishing to explore their practice in their own direction, you’ll be able to develop as an individual in your work and beyond. You’ll have excellent guidance but you’ll ultimately be in charge of your destiny.
Our Leeds College of Art accommodation gives you the space to be as free and creative as you need. You’ll have the perfect balance between private study time and socialising as there will be other students around you to give you a well-deserved break.

Why choose Liberty Living?
We welcome group bookings
Want to live with your friends? We can make it happen! At Liberty Living, we’re happy for you to book with whoever you like. So, if you can’t bear the thought of being separated for even one moment, now you don’t have to be. We know how social University is and we don’t want to split anyone up who’s quite happy in their own little group. We’d also be the last ones to split up a relationship, so you can even share a room with a partner thanks to our room shares – in residences that have double rooms or studios.
Perhaps you’re coming back for your second or third year with us, or maybe you all met on your course – it doesn’t matter, we’d love to have you stay with Liberty Living. We’ll welcome you (or welcome you back!) with open arms. As an added incentive, we’ll even help you settle in, too. Book in a group of four or more people and we’ll give you a £100* shopping voucher for a supermarket of your choice. Better get sharpening those cooking skills – you’ll all have to do your fair share!
It’s super easy to make a booking together, so follow the link to find out more about group bookings.
*Shopping voucher offer of £100 differs in some residences and is only available at selected residences.
The best choice for international students
Coming to the UK to study from abroad? Welcome! We love catering to students from all over the world and learning a thing or two about their culture. Luckily, we’ve already got plenty of experience with this as we currently have around 4,500 international students staying with us, so you’re certainly not alone.
When you stay with Liberty Living your safety is the most important thing to us. We understand that you’re a long way from home and you want to feel comfortable and secure at all times. We have amazing staff on hand 24 hours a day, from the Residence Team, right through to Security who’ll keep an eye out for you overnight as well as CCTV. Contents insurance covering your possessions is included as standard in your rent, so your stuff is protected, and any parcels you have delivered will be well looked after until you can come to collect them.
Of course, we want you to have fun and make the most of your time here, too. You can always come to us with any problems, or even just for a chat. A new country can be confusing, so we’ve got loads of tips for things to do, too – just ask! Many of our staff members are multilingual, so don’t be shy if English isn’t your first language; if we can’t immediately offer support in your native tongue, we’ll point you in the direction of someone who can. We’ll do our best to help you settle in and make friends, and we can point you in the right direction for any visa, welfare or University advice you may need.
