You can choose from several types of housing at the University of Leeds ranging from single rooms with meal plans to shared housing. The University residence halls have a full meal plan, the cost of which is included in your housing fees. Three residence halls are on campus yet the majority are located 1-3 miles away on a main bus route. An advantage of choosing a residence hall is the convenience of communal dining rooms and laundry facilities.
There are also flats (apartments) with communal kitchens and private or shared shower and toilet. Small, shared housing is also an option. There is a "Hillel House" which is an associated hostel with a cafeteria serving Kosher food for Jewish students of the University.
Housing becomes available at the start of the Intro week in September. You will receive an application for housing from the Office of International Education after you are accepted as a participant in this program. On that application, you'll be able to specify your housing preferences. More details for housing can be found on-line: click here
