Excellent location and facilities for the price, easy to get into both the city and the university campus, but perhaps slightly lacking socially.

Great location, less than a 2 minute walk from campus. Known for having high percentage of international students. Not very social. Really nice rooms and ensuits.

The location is absolutely 10/10. You're about a 5 minute walk into the city centre and you're basically on campus for uni too. It's also perfect if you enjoy going to the gym as The Edge is a 2 minute walk from Central Village. The rooms are spacious and all come with an en suite bathroom which is ideal. It's 5 or 6 people per flat. It's not the most sociable of Halls at Leeds, this is just something that a lot of people I lived with in first year observed, but I suppose it's different every year.

Very big kitchen, nice room, clean courtyard, noise from ambulances and helicopters from the general infirmary, no road noise from inner ring road though, very good location close to campus and city centre

Central Village is quite expensive but is excellent in terms of location. It is only a five minute walk to the university and a ten minute walk to the city centre. The rooms are spacious and modern, and the en suites are nice and clean. It is a bit loud at night due to the proximity to the university and students participating in nightlife but is overall a great place to stay

It was like a hotel and very close to uni, but not that social. It was great to be in the tower as it was a brand new building.

The flat was really modern. A comfortable communal space was provided and the kitchen was open planned allowing a more social atmosphere. The room was very decently sized with a generous three quarter bed and modern furniture. Overall a very nice flat.

This accomodation is in the prime location for freshers - right next to the city and uni. There are so many students you can find people on your course to walk to lectures with and make friends from there. The actual rooms are nice and repairs are done swiftly. Only problem is some other flats have no vents or windows so get very hot in the kitchen to the point you can’t sit in them.

Best location you could ask for, so close to campus but also on the side of campus closest to town so you can be in the Center in 10 mins walk. The people aren’t as social as everyone tells you but rooms are nice enough that if you make no friends you don’t mind sitting alone in it

Lovely accomodation in terms of room size, closeness to university and kitchen size. Each flat came with a tv but it was abit rubbish channel wise so we never used it! The windows in my block did not open so it was contantly like 90 degrees in my room unless I had my multiple desk fans on which was annoying when trying to sleep! The accomodation was not the most sociable but I still made amazing friends and the ensuites were lush. They also had a cool games room in block c where you could play pool and table tennis for free so that was fun.

The location is great for uni as well as for nightlife. My flatmates were really friendly and the decor is modern and nice. Everything worked perfectly, or if not, was fixed quickly. The accommodation could have held better social events (like Charles Morris who had a summer fair!) and wasn't extremely social, but the effort was there.

Central village is in the beat location possible, especially for medical students as if only takes 5 minutes to get to the medical school, and is just a 10 minute walk into Leeds town centre, wth a Morrison’s just across the road. Washers and dryers are available within most of the buildings, and the kitchens are spacious and are very modern.

Central Village is really good if you want to be close to campus but you don’t want to pay on campus fees. The location is good for nights out as you can walk everywhere and don’t have to worry about taking a taxi or an Uber. The rooms are nice compared to other halls and it decent for the price. However, Central Village is known for being unsocial and hard to make friends with other flats and other blocks.

Really great building, great placement and Tesco is handy just outside. Perfectly between town and uni - only downside is, with lots of different buildings and few common rooms it is not the most social halls- have to put in effort to socialise and the rooms on some floors of block D have windows which are unable to open. Other than that though great place with en suites, as well as amazing sized, modern kitchens. Constant security and staff are really good at fixing any issues/ helping you if you lock yourself out. Very smoothly run and a great start to independent living

Good location for getting to uni and into town, good facilities and nice room but bad social experience, not very social block or flat or ways to socialise due to structure of building.

In a great location; so close to the university, the uni gym, the city centre and with a Tesco underneath. Nice flats.

Not the most social place but big kitchen and lounge and nice sized rooms too :) it just depends who turns up in your flat and your block!
