“There are lots of other international students here, so there’s plenty of fun, cultural exchanges. There are so many people from all over the world – you get to try out lots of different things, especially food.”

How to apply
You must formally accept your academic offer to study with us before you can apply for accommodation. If you are a Masters student or postgraduate researcher starting in September or October, you must apply online for accommodation by 1 July.
If you are starting at any other time of year, please apply for accommodation at least two months before you are due to start at the University. In this case you will need to email email@example.com for an application form.
We understand how important it is to have your family with you during your studies. The University provides some family accommodation close to the University. Please visit the accommodation website for more information.
You may prefer to live in the private sector where you will find an excellent choice of accommodation close to campus and across Leeds. Options range from rooms in shared houses, to studios and en-suite accommodation in private developments.
If you are considering private housing, help and advice is available from the Student Advice Centre, run by Leeds University Union. We also recommend you use Unipol, a registered charity based on campus.
Unipol can help you to meet other students who are looking to flat/house share or help you find something on your own.
They also hold a number of house hunting events so you can meet other students who are looking to find a shared property.
