James Baillie Park so far has been amazing. They put in a lot of time in terms of organising mixer events e.g. bbqs, fun fairs and trips to ensure you settle into uni life and meet people straight away. It's a larger accomodation filled with great people so you are bound to get along with someone here. It is definitley one of the more louder and sociable accommodations, which if you are like me appreciate! It's a bit further away from the university however, it is well connected with the bus stop at the end of the road and if you want to walk it the journey through Hyde park is beautiful. Also, by its placement in Headingley/Hyde park area you are in a really fun student area with all the restaraunts, pubs and supermarkets you need! It also allows you to get to know the area of which we most likely will end up living in second/third year. In terms of the facilities you get what you pay for, there's a few technical/practical issues from time to time but nevertheless good.
