Only a 10 minute walk from the centre of campus and half an hour walk to town so ideal location. Rooms are a really good size and en-suite are nice. Kitchens are a decent size and fully equipped with everything you need. If anything is broken maintenance are very quick to fix it and the staff are all really lovely and there's 24 hours security so really safe. Wifi is always really fast and the price isn't bad for what you get. Only downside is there a few silverfish all over the accommodation and beds and sofas in the kitchen are really uncomfortable and it's not that socialable unless you make your own fun.

The location is really colourful and quite vibrant. There is a lot of greenery as well which makes the visual experience even more enhanced on a sunny day. The facilities are great too we have sustainable heating, good bathrooms, showers and kitchens. The rooms are spacious too. The experience is decent as many people still have to get out of their shells due to shyness but the clubs around Leeds are fantastic. There is a lot of social activities the facilities provide us students there such as pizza night whilst everyone comes to watch popular television series or a bbq party which was around the end of the summer. The people there are friendly however regardless of being shy so you feel quite safe and welcomed upon arrival.

Choosing Leodis as my first year accommodation was the best decision! There was 6 of us in a flat, 3 boys 3 girls and we had a great first year! Rooms are a good size with unsuite and still good mates with all of them living with them still! Location to the uni is great, a slight hill (reason for 4 star) but about 10/15 minute walk! Not strict on security about noise like some of the other accommodations and not to far from the city centre! Leeds student medical is also around the corner

Nice rooms and good en suites. However there is Black mould on the shower and on window sill. Was on shower when I go there, never cleaned by anyone properly. Windows very poor quality, lots of condensation leading to black mould on the window sill. Close to uni but the area is rather dodgy and not really a a town or anything, just a londis. Way to expensive.

Rooms are modern and the kitchens are latex out really well. Amazing location. But there is a lack of washing machines and there is occasionally an issue with getting post delivered. However the staff are friendly and i cannot reccommend leodis higher.

The rooms at Leodis are a good size, with a very nice en-suite modern bathroom. You get a double bed which is a huge plus. There's not very much storage but plenty of room to provide your own (under bed boxes etc). The kitchens vary in size but personally ours was very spacious and come with sofas and a television so you can socialise with your flatmates. The site is secure and security are on site 24/7. There are events across the year although it isn't the most social halls. It can be quite difficult to do laundry as there are very few washing machines in relation to how many residents there are but if you go during the day it's quite easy to get one. The only other downside is it's at a bottom of a big hill, but it's much closer to the university than a lot of other halls - 10-20 minute walk depending on which side of campus you're on.

Very close to uni (8 minute walk, although up a hill...), double bed and ensuite in every room and a communal kitchen with breakfast bar, sofa and tv. Very clean, sociable and convenient - loved being there!

My room is so spacious and clean when I arrived. The en-suite is so big and nice, showering is always good. The facilities at leodis are generally good.

only a 7 minute walk to uni (but it is up a hill) and a 1 minute walk from a local Londis (but it is in a semi dodgy area)

Perfect location, only 10 mins walk to Uni and 20 into centre of Leeds. Great sized rooms with en-suite in every room. Nice kitchens with plenty of room. Social but not too much so, never too much noise. Friendly staff

Great location, only 10 mins walk to Uni. Very sociable halls but not too loud all the time. Close to Londis, Morrison's and not too far from an Aldi (20 mins walk). Good sized room and small double bed which is a bonus and nice en-suite.

Really sociable halls and easy to mingle. Washing machines broke and maintenance takes ages to fix things but the rooms are so spacious and modern and the kitchen is so good for pre's! Has a magnetic board instead of pin board and don't use the common room but don't need to. Really good distance from uni and love it!

Location is good apart from a hill to walk every day. The kitchen of my flat is quite small, not many can be in the area at once. Bedrooms are great however en-suite is really small. Shower is tiny! Freshers socials weren't very good apart from BBQ.

Rooms are very spacious and have an en suite which is good for privacy. Kitchens have a sofa and very social. Although no cleaners which other accommodations have. Very close to uni which is convenient.

Really good, quite modern halls but less popular than central village, so well worth applying for as it’s not likely to be oversubscribed. Great location - only a 15 minute walk into uni which up a hill mind, but you soon get used to it! Flats are size of 6 which is a good group size and each room has an ensuite and a communal living area. Each block of flats are sociable with one another, and there are a few Leodis events (Christmas ball, summer party etc) which helps to get to know others in your halls.

This halls is in a perfect location, it’s a 10 minute walk from university at most and a 20 minute walk from the city centre. The halls themselves are extremely modern, each flat has 6 large rooms with an en suite and and big communinal kitchen/living room. My room was opposite the kitchen and thankfully you could not hear between the walls so if there were pres in there, I wouldn’t be distracted. The only downside was that the drain in the en suite was blocked in 2 of the rooms in my flat that was left unfixed all year, despite repeatedly asking. The only downside is that collectively, the halls are not very sociable so you will have to hope your flat is! The common room is pretty big, but not used very often.

Leodis is a great location being only a 10 minute walk to university. It has bright double rooms with en-suites, and each flat is shared with another 5 people. It is sociable so beware if you want a quiet accommodation, only quiet bans put on are during exam seasons.

Leodis is an 8 minute walk from the Parkinson Building which is convenient and there is a Londis very closeby. The area itself is a bit sketchy, but there is security around. The facilities are okay in general but I feel like the laundry facilities are overpriced and the internet is not great. Socially, there are opportunities, for instance freshers activities as well as other socials such as the Leodis Otley Run. Personally, I like my room. It has an en suite bathroom, large desk and a 3/4 bed. Also, maintenance are very quick to respond to problems, but I do think the management is quite intrusive sometimes.

The accommodation facilities are really good! It's very close to uni, within an 8-minute walk you are in Parkinson's Building. However, the area is not very safe. The overall social experience was ok, there were lots of socials giving the opportunity to meet people, but the blocks, in general, weren't very welcoming. Overall, I had an excellent time!!

The rooms and kitchens are well sized for student accommodation and having an ensuite is great especially during the times you’re feeling a little ill. Leodis only gets 3 stars for me because it is overpriced for what it is and the social side of te residence is somewhat lacking behind the other halls in Leeds

The location couldn’t be much better! It was so close to uni and it was near to town, and loads of convenience store close by too. My room was perfect couldn’t really ask for anything more - double bed, big desk, couple of drawers and a wardrobe. It wasn’t a massively social halls everyone seemed to keep to their own flats/floors. There was a social area were you could hang out but I never used it.

Utterly awful, I had mould in my room all year. The shower worked intermittently and was never properly fixed throughout the year. Rooms were cramped and mine was infested with silverfish. The reception staff were wholly unhelpful with issues like post and the female facilities manager was catty, unprofessional and downright rude in some instances. Laundry is managed by circuit and is therefore extortionate (in the order of 40-50 pounds per term). Overall, not nearly worth the £135 a week or so they charge.

All in all its pretty good accommodation. The main issue is that it's up hill going to uni, like really up hill, which is such a pain. The walls are quite thin so pray for good flatmates and block mates. Maintenance are kinda rubbish in following up complaints but if you shout at them or better still get a parent to do it it'll get sorted ASAP. Best part is having an ensuit.

Nice enough accommodation, dead close to uni which is amazing, reception staff always dead helpful. Never too loud but never too quiet either, the best all rounder in my opinion
