Leeds has been a fabulous city to go to university. It is multicultural, diverse and vibrant. The prices are reasonable and the city centre offers such variety in terms of shopping, eating, drinking and dancing. The university is also fantastic with top class facilities and opportunities for everyone.

Leeds is a good all rounder city. Vibrant night life yet still up and coming for the daytime. Food wise there’s a wide variety. Leeds trinity shopping centre provides Trinity kitchen where a range of food is produced in a small space meaning if you can’t decide this space is ideal. The transport is forever being updated in Leeds with buses every 10 minutes and trains even more frequent. There is even a free water taxi which is a great experience.

There’s always something do in Leeds, with most things walking distance or a short uber ride away. The city centre has a range of shops, restaurants, cafes etc., with both cheap and more expensive options. As for nightlife, there’s usually something for everyone with big events happening most weeks, although these can be quite expensive.

Leeds is a really great city for everything. It is vibrant and offers many great bargains. It's nightlife is unrivalled and the variety of food is growing all the time. One of the few cities where you can get a takeaway 24 hours a day.

Mint for students, get yourself down to Headingley for a top night out. Shopping is good and fairly cheap, and good cheap places to eat

When I came to Leeds I was shocked at how amazing it is! There are many things to do from eating out in a wide range of restaurants to shopping and cinema trips. Right next to my university there is always something going on from the German market around Christmas time to the ice arena just after new year. So many things to explore which makes your uni life memorable! I love Leeds!!

Campus very close to the city centre and even so has good public transport. Lots of good clubs for nights out & they’re not particularly expensive. As it’s in the north it’s pretty cheap anyway, which is obviously great as a student on a tight budget. Would definitely recommend Leeds as a good student city especially because of the price and the things to do.

The night life in Leeds is one of the best in the north. There is a wide variety of clubs with all kinds of music and different events. There is plenty of affordable resteraunts and takeaways, even for those on a budget. Trinity is a huge shopping center with many shops, places to eat and the everyman cinema! The city itself is full of high street stores, resteraunts and funky bars. Merrion street is a great place to to out to drink, and call lane if you have a higher budget. If you're a little low on money and still have to meet your friends for a drink, the angel inn and the ship inn sell lots of different types of beer for under £3!!

Leeds is a great city, particularly in terms of food. There are a whole host bring you're own booze restaurants such as Akmal and Mai's where a meal will set you back £6 to £10. Great shopping in town and the club Wire is a great club. The Fenton is the best pub with pints starting at £2:10 and staying open till 2 on weekends. The main issue for the city is transport, with no metro or trams and a relatively poor bus service. However fortunately if you traveling in a small group taxis are quite cheap, particularly the company Amber.

Busy town with lots of variety for restaurants and venues. Loads of character and culture. Many new and renevated shopping centres such as the Victoria Gate. Always things to do and something on. All the big chains are available as well as a great selection of independent shops. The same goes for places to eat. Not always the cheapest night out but there are lots of good options when on a budget. There will always be an option whatever your style of music or idea of a good time is.

Leeds is a fantastic city with something on offer for anything you're looking for. Great live music venues with a huge variety like brudenell, Belgrave, headrow house, o2 and more. Wide range of place to eat you can find anything you want with a great atmosphere so easily. A really big party scene and can always find fun in bars if you don't want to stay raving til 5am. They have heaps of activities and are super close to some fantastic nature in the dales.
