Citysides location is perfect for me, I'm within a few minutes walk from all my lectures and seminars at uni. It's also very close to the city centre which is great for shopping and for nights out as I can walk to most places which saves me money in taxis. It's really close to The Edge gym too where I use the gym facilities and play netball. Cityside also has a gym which is accessible 24/7 which is great. One of my favourite features of cityside is the common room/cinema room and I use the facilities everyday. Cityside is nice to look at too with modern kitchens and bedrooms, and I always feel very secure as you need key fobs to get into the building.

Perfect location for both uni and the city centre, as well as being super nice and clean as it’s so new! Plenty of people to meet - although most friends I met during freshers and then through mutuals or my course, not everyone in the block is super chatty like other accomdations. Also great facilities like own gym!

Brilliant location in between town and uni. Really awful building works started just before Xmas and will continue till we move out. Made revision impossible

Amazing location so close to the University and town. Facilities are the best out there with an on site gym and en suite rooms. In my opinion best accommodation out there and if I could stay another year I would.

The location of this accommodation is perfect, right in the centre of the city and the city campus, everything you need is a 5-10 minute walk away. Perfect for first year students moving to the city. Being next door to the central village residences allows great socialising opportunities, all around the site is well lit and secure. The rooms and the facilities are great! very spacious, however in the larger rooms with baths in the bathroom there could be a little more storage space for items and books etc. The social facilities (Kitchen/Dining area) are very spacious and all the appliances are modern and work fine. With the spacious environment in these social areas there could be more storage space such as drawers and maybe even the input of a dishwasher as there is space to do so and only one sink in the kitchen for 6 people. Social spaces on the lower floors near the entrance are great, pool table, cinema area, large TV's to connect xbox, playstation etc. to and spaces to do work, all brand new, very modern and great to be social. The gym onsite is fantastic, small, but has most of the equipment you need to have a good session, however because of its size it can get quite crowded during peak times which isn't always great. The rooms were very clean when ready to move into, and there were regular checks by the cityside team to ensure everything was still working correctly and nothing needed replacing or repairing. Overall I had a great experience living at cityside accommodation and would happily recommend to all students looking to move to leeds for the university. The cost of the accommodation is on the more expensive side, but the quality and security of what you get is well worth it. 100% the best accommodation I have seen at any university.
