Leodis is a good choice for those who want an en-suite and car parking. I’d recommend Montague Burton for those who have a car, if you are worried about the shared bathrooms, don’t be. It will probably be cleaner than your en-suite because you’ll have cleaners come regularly, whereas you’ll have to clean your kitchen and bathroom yourself if you get an en-suite. Leodis is sociable, has a decent common room and has decent management. Always had any issues resolved in a timely manner and reception is nice. Do not worry about the hill, people massively over exaggerate, it’s a 2 minute inclined walk, nothing treacherous. Although, Montague Burton is situated in the middle of the hill as opposed to the bottom (where Leodis is). If you really need an en-suite, go for Leodis, but I’d reccomend Montague Burton for the price and value for money, it’s much better. If you would like to see a tour of Leodis, I’ve uploaded a video to YouTube “Leodis Residences Tour”.
Leodis is not the worst, but definitely not the best. The rooms are okay, but invest in a mattress topper, and there is very little counter space in the bathroom. Kitchen sizes change from flat to flat so it's a coin toss on space, and there are no cleaning services, unlike other places. The accommodation is about ten minutes up an annoying hill to the Parkinson building. You can get a bus at the bottom of the hill into town. There is a common room but not very many events put on by the residence. There are lots of washers and dryers but there have been a couple that have been broken all year. The staff are friendly and nice, but our flat had issues with maintenance and staff personnel coming into our flat without notice before conducting repairs and inspections. Generally quiet. If you're given Leodis for your accommodation then it's fine, but don't go out of your way to put it as your first choice as there are definitely better accommodations.
Close to uni (despite the hill). Rooms are spacious in A block and would say the rooms are pretty good. A little bit overpriced for the service provided however. Maintenance staff do often respond to problems with the accomodation. However, the rooms did come with a few problems with the drawers, a broken TV and a cheap microwave. The mattress clearly hadn't been deep cleaned. Over the easter break, the maintenance crew came to refurbish the bathroom, but didn't bother to lock my room door when 2 weeks were literally left of the holidays with nobody to lock it, with all my belongings inside it. This is careless. On top of that, the company takes £148 of your limited supply of money as a student, yet make you clean the kitchen three times a year? Really? You can't use a small percentage of that to send cleaners? And they are insanely strict with the checkups too, making sure you get every speck in the mid check ups. Why are they making you clean the kitchen during exam season? Insane.
Leodis is a fine place to live. It has a shared games room on sight. My it is all self catered and self cleaned, so it is up to the residents to clean (sadly I’ve landed with a flat who doesn’t clean up after themselves, but that’s okay). Nothing extraordinary, but is a comfortable and close-to-the-university property.
the pictures shown online are pretty accurate as to what Leodis looks like however each set of flats in each block has a different layout which is rather unfair as we are paying all the same amount for significantly different spaces- some kitchens and rooms are huge whereas others quite small. The ensuite is really nice for what you pay- proper shower. its 2021 and they still have failed to sort out the silver fish problem but Leodis is not the only accommodation suffering from this infestation so it may be a leeds thing- Devonshire, IQ and even the gym have them- they are grim but I guess you get over it. We did have people called in to spray the flats against them but after they had come I was getting more silver fish than ever before. The security is nice but some of the receptionists are very moody and rude, especially the short old man. the social life is what you make out of it, there are some weirdos but it is easy to make friends. close to town and headingley so v.conveniant.
The room has a VERY UNCOMFORTABLE MATTRESS, you need a topper otherwise you will never get a good night’s sleep. There is no mirror in the room except for the en-suite. There’s no way in hell they cleaned our rooms and the en-suite before we came, the first time I properly cleaned the bathroom it was vile and the brand new sponge that I took to clean it came out looking like it had been used for the last decade totally brown. You also feel very isolated, even if all your roommates have the doors to their rooms open it still feels like a correctional facility. There are Silverfish in the bathroom. The walls are very thin. Both our fridges have not worked since we moved in. Our oven also stopped working within twice within the first two weeks. The floor in our kitchen is grim, even after we cleaned it with strong bleach twice. The staff are very rude, most of the time. They don’t have a vacuums, told us to clean our whole flat with just a dustpan and brush.
I originally put James Baillie but ended up getting leodis. Orginally after reading the reviews for leodis and I was so upset but honestly I can’t tell you how much my mind didn’t change. I spent every single day with my friends in James Baillie. The social scene in leodis is honestly the most dead thing you’ve ever seen. I gave leodis So many chances for a good night during Covid but it continually dissapointed. It’s not even like I went to James baillie because I loved drugs like it has the rep for (I’ve never touched a drug in my life) but the social was so much better, we would chill for hours then have a motive and then chill again for ages, all my best friends are now from JB and whenever we went to leodis not a person was about. The accom is overall nice and good location (good for living) but if you want a fun uni experience then go to JB not leodis (this is from the perspective of someone who went to uni in 2020 during corona but I assume its similar in other years.
My time in Leodis was great. The management was excellent, we managed to break the hob in our first week and they got it repaired within the next day. Our radiator also broke and they sent up a temporary heater while they fixed our radiator, it was all quick and efficient. I had no problems with anything in my room or bathroom. The rooms are spacious and the desk is well sized, the bathroom is modern and worth what you pay. Our only problem was we didn't have enough cupboards for how many were living in the flat and the kitchen island was wrapped around a wall so we couldn't all sit next to each other but the living area was massive and we got good use out of the balcony doors. Leodis is social enough if you want it to be, knock on people's doors and invite people to pre's. Its noisy during freshers but during term most peoples pres finish before midnight and practically a silent at 10pm during the exam period. People over exaggerate the hill, it's really not that bad at all.
A bit far from campus. The socials are brilliant however
Bit boring for me however possibly due to flat mates. Good location close to uni but fairly expensive compare to other halls.
Leodis is the best choice i’ve made so far. It’s incredibly socialable and really easy to get to know other people through pres etc. Previous comments about the management put me off but it must be new staff because i’ve found them so helpful. Moses the security guard is a G, the people at reception are nice to you so long as you’re nice to them. Maintenance gets done next day pretty much. The rooms: super super spacious with a 3/4 bed which is decent but reccomend you being s mattress topper. Bathrooms are decent and showers got really really good pressure. Different blocks vary in their social area in terms on the sofas in the living bit. Our block is awkwardly shaped but it’s still sociable and we still have pres easily. the kitchens are fantastic too. Overall i’m so so happy i chose here and yet to have any negatives.
Leodis is alright. Kinda overpriced for what it is but nice modernish accommodation, nice kitchen and great showers as others have said. Rooms are pretty reasonable size, much better than the likes of Henry Price. Like others have said, Management/Hospitality team is pretty much what lets Leodis down as a whole. Management seem to be pretty useless, uninterested and simply not very nice/approachable people. The hospitality team do a poor job with the cleaning, apparently my block is cleaned twice a week but there's been mess on the stairs from some maintenance work since freshers week, and for someone who has done communal cleaning professionally before, it's obvious to spot where they cut corners. Security (Moses) is sound but literally cannot have chilled pre's without getting called out on and accused of being too noisy and shut down (literally other blocks have louder pre's until 12/01 and no one bats an eye..). But yeah, could be worse.
On the whole leodis is sound for the actual living spaces, kitchen is really spacious and fittings are modern in both the kitchen and bedroom. Bed is comfy and a nice size + shower is never cold and a good pressure. Wifi is average-fairly fast but always drops out and can take a while to reconnect especially on your phone. 15-20 min walk to central campus, 25-30 to town. Social side is good, people are really friendly and there's always somebody with a pres. In terms of the management, I'd 100% agree with the other reviews that say it's poor. Despite mansion claiming they have a dedicated hospitality team, I found the staff quite lazy and unhelpful. Was only until we spoke to the student sub warden who told us that after 3 weeks of having no fridge "staff had lied to us" and not actually bothered to order one dispite our numerous complaints and reminders. Most of the time i see some of the staff they're either having a fag or having a bit of a domestic in the car park.
Fantastic!! Caring landlord and wonderful flat mates
Management are absolutely terrible. Have heard them b**** about students on multiple occasions, making fun of students for personal issues. Security are lovely, just make sure to only go to the office outside of the usual 9-5 office hours.
It's a decent place, I like living here but there are many flaws ------- Value for Money: > love the ensuite but many people complain the shower is too small > room is a nice size with 3/4 bed > kitchen is nice socialising space > small kitchen, max. 2 people can cook at one time. > certain dryers don't dry properly and laundry is expensive. > thin walls Location: > Very close to uni > Big hill > Surrounding area is a bit dodgy Hall management > Patronising > Pretty intrusive imo - people walk into your flat randomly without warning > Maintenance was really quick tho Cleaning > You clean it yourself so idk. Common room > Pool table, vending machines & lots of seats etc. > Nobody goes in there Social experience > There are fb group chats for Leodis and individual blocks > Good if your flat gets on well > Events sometimes WiFi > Terrible!!! Unreliable, disconnects randomly and takes about 3 & 1/2 days to reconnect (about 5mins really but still annoying af).
the internet is slow as hell, there are tons of silverfish in the bathroom that crawls all over the place by night. some of the staff are nice but i found some of them racist and mean. the room is annoyingly small.. and the kitchen is too small to be shared with 6 students. can't wait for the contract to end
One of the more expensive halls due to refurb and ensuite however did not find value for money. Bedroom walls were halfheartedly painted in 3 different colours, scruffy wardrobe, disgusting toilet and among other things a broken door handle which they failed to properly fix on many, many occasions (resulting in being locked out at all times and situations and the actual thing falling off probably even more so). Management, (exc Jordan and the hassled looking blonde lady) were rude and I find the lack of appearance and pro-activeness to achieving a decent quality to be a reflection of disrespect towards us being students (without considering we are the ones working towards our degrees as well as paying the expensive rent.) Furthermore, my halls was full of either exchange students who were predominantly into keeping within themselves and/or year 3s and 4s who had lots of work to concentrate. Overall an especially disappointing halls experience.
The management is absolutely rubbish. The manager did not help us at all throughout the year despite our continuous complaints about appliances not working. We complained about the freezer for like 6 months and nothing was done until our food all got defrosted. The blinds don't block out the sunlight so they wake you up at like 5am. The walls are very thin so you can practically hear someone breathing through the walls. There's building works going on that also wake you up. The manager was honestly so unhelpful. The security guard Chris and the subwardens were friendly but overall, my leodis experience has scarred me for life.
Very social halls, lots of students to meet, but they inspect regularly and cleaning is strict. Is hard to get your parcels often because lack of staff in the office.
Rooms and ensuit are fairly big and nice. Kitchen is on the small side and difficult to cook if more than two people are cooking at the same time. Cleaners only clean the stairs and lift and not very often. Maintenance are really good and respond quickly to even the smallest of problems
Terrible experience with the staff being most extremely rude, very racist and patronising. Maintenance men were nice dudes but the management was so poor I couldn't believe they'd "managed" to even get the job itself. (lol) The location is great with Hyde park just opposite and lots of nice cafes in the area plus the park opposite to hang out in the sun or play basketball with your mates. All in all I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody..It's worth looking elsewhere as they will scam your money from you as much as their bank balances will hold.
Services are pathetic , take ages for a maintenace job , all appliances are old . took 100£ from my deposit for a bedsheet hardly worth 10£ . NOT recommended
Very sociable if you're not a total loner like me. Nice sized rooms, but thin walls so you can hear people pounding each other all the time. Friendly staff, overall pretty good tbh
Please contact me if you are a student who has been charged via their deposit without a ref on their bank statement and also if the charge was unjustified as we have been charged for a soiled mattress which we have evidence of ie photos and people who checked the room on the day of leaving - the mattress was NOT soiled and it appears that students are being charged incorrectly.
The rooms are great but no cleaners unlike all other halls. Your social experience can really vary due to the isolated nature of the rooms.
I heard of other blocks that weren't too social due to international students but mine (C block) and plenty of others were great for meeting people and parties etc. Rooms + Kitchen were great and reception staff couldn't have been better. Only downside is tiny common room which we only used when the exec organised socials. Perfect location in my opinion, although that hill is a struggle for 9ams you get used to it.
The only thing great about Leodis is the close proximity to the Uni and the big kitchens and rooms you get. The post system is really good and tends to be reliable. The security guard, Martin, is lovely. However, in general staff here are terrible; they tend to barge into your flats a lot so you get NO privacy. The staff are also rude and yell at you for small things including cleaning when they don't even do it themselves. There are woodlouse in rooms and the lobby is never even swept.
Good year, quite expensive rent
Socially it really depends on who you are put with but that is the same with most places. I was lucky to be put in a really fun block
close to uni, but far enough to feel separate. good range of social events, and free breakfasts before exams!! v. good
Very close to uni, a little further from town. Modern and social halls best value for money en suite accommodation.
close to uni and to town, has good sized rooms and good kitchens
Really good accomodation, really modern and clean. Halls reps always put loads of activities on - the best ones being when you get bar tabs for nights out!! Overall social experience is a bit meh compared with other halls but it's all down to who you end up sharing a flat with I guess
Very social but is very expensive
If you are looking for an adult halls and not a student halls then this is for you. The staff will look to fine you at every corner and stop any sort of student fun before it gets a chance to develop.
Nice halls near uni. Only a short walk up the hill. The layout of the kitchen isn't great with a huge wall blocking any sort of communal eating space.
Enjoyed Leodis. Only moan is bottom of a huge hill which reduces you to a sweaty panting mess at all times of the year
Convenient plane to be with good size rooms. Sofas in the kitchen incredibly uncomfortable but amazing showrs
Great location only a couple of minutes walk from the uni. Some people complain about the hill, but it's really not that bad. The common room is small and you'll probably never find yourself in there but if you want to have a party you can always book out the common room for a night which is quite nice (but a lot of hassle). The en suites are very nice, beds are a great size and the desks are quite big too. The grounds itself are clean but no one will clean up your kitchen for you so sometimes it can get quite messy. The only bad things about it is the light at night in the rooms, if you're moving in and can't sleep in slight light then you will have to cover the window with a sheet, which isn't a big deal. The wardrobe space isn't brilliant and some rooms don't come with a full length mirror which is a bit of a pain but once again it's not hard to get your own. I've found it to be very social and have really enjoyed my time there, would highly recommend it.
Pretty good location but the hill is murder. It's not bad but it's definitely not worth the money
At 123, it's not the cheapest of halls but you get value for your money. The rooms are spacious and the beds are big enough. The toilet is basic but nice with black and white decor. One complaint about the toilet: loud fan if you turn the light on. I've resolved this by now using fairylights so I dont have to turn the light on. The location is amazing, max 15 mins from door to inside sections of uni. It's hard getting used to the hill and steps you have to walk up but it soon becomes second nature and I've even started to apreciate it because of the extra exercise in the morning! Hall management is good. Amazing communication and great help. Always answers the security phones if you have a noise complaint which was common for me as the walls are quite thin and it's distruptive if upstairs or downstairs have a party as you can hear all of it. Gave cleaning a three because it really depends on your flat as theres no cleaners. Social spaces are comfy and big and it's easy to make friends.
Nice accommodation, but not in the most pleasant of areas.
Very sociable and clean. Maintenance is quick. Perfect location. Great for just moving out.
Amazing halls but soooo antisocial and did not have any cleaners which was annoying as most other halls do!
Really nice halls, so close to uni, recently refurbished and much nicer than most other halls. However management (other than the security team who are angels) are rude, broken items are never fixed and some rooms are missing furniture (shelves and a mirror) people are charged for broken furniture that broke due to poor quality/overuse. Not the most sociable halls, but still fun and there are occasionally events.
Great social experience, but poor corrupt management & value for money.
Loads of people got mugged outside my halls during my first semester there so location/security not so good. Pretty clean, spacious. Social events were non-existent (luckily my flatmates were nice)
Manager is not approachable, very patronising and rude at times. Rooms very nice and met some nice people.
A dirty place that is rather overpriced. The location is really good, despite the hill. But the rooms were dirty on arrival and collect dirt like no tomorrow. The furniture is unconfortable and easily breakable. The appliances also are cheap: the oven either burns or does nothing and we have had 5 toasters because they keep exploding. For the price it's very poor
Good location, nice rooms with en suite. Not very sociable.
If you end up in Block A, ask to change rooms before you've moved in. It's the only block with no lift so you'll have a very tough year ahead of you! No one wants to walk up 14 flights of stairs to visit - so socialising is difficult. As is moving in and simple tasks such as bringing your shopping upstairs. Unless stair sweepers count as cleaners - there are none. And even they barely ever come... Particularly if they needed to trek to the top of the block! Value of money? I would say it probably isn't worth the cost. The rooms are big and all en suite, the kitchen is large and the lounge is big enough to socialise with your entire floor in. But bear in mind (other than the en suite), probably all halls have those same facilities for a much cheaper price. They may not be as close to uni, but who's bothered about walking an extra 10 minutes if you're saving money? It's self-catered, with barely any social events, no cleaners and the management isn't great. Very expensive in my view!
Quite pricey accommodation. Staff could be more helpful.
Although Leodis is near uni, we have double beds and an en-suite showers; it is not in a safe area. The maintenance people are very unhelpful, we've had lots of problems with cold water for showers, no WIFI connections and faulty ovens, each time we complain very little is done to help and fix the problems. I also live in B-block right next to a extremely noisy building site, which Leodis failed to fully notify the students off. Due to building work starting at 7:30 am every morning I had to contact Leeds council before anything was done about the noise as I was basically ignored by Leodis staff. Despite this, the rooms are a good size and the friends I have made are brilliant. Personally I feel Leodis probably not worth the money.
Probably the best hall at Leeds uni. One of the closest to campus with fantastic facilities and mid range price.
Really close to Uni, fun, social and the safety is great.
Terrible Wifi - Prison Like Management - Good Location Let me start with the positives, the halls are good walking distance to university and town with a taxi back costing as little as £3. Locale 'Londis' shop only 3 minutes walk away which is convenient but expensive They try and charge you for everything including the sub-par seats that they provide which break literally by using them as a chair.. Cooker and window broken through no fault of our own yet they still threatened to charge us for a replacement which is ludicrous and unfair The Wifi is so temperamental that you have to reconnect every 15 minutes with the signal randomly disappearing Management rude and unhelpful. Students spoken too in a patronising way. Online maintenance request system means it takes ages for maintenance to be carried out. System down half the time and won't let you log a report. They also won't help you if you go to reception and simply tell them.
The room could have been a little bit more clean when I arrived. I also ordered a bedding pack which was not present when I got to my room. Its not a bad place to live though, you have everything you need and its close to uni.
I would recommend these halls above any other at the university. It is very close to the main campus, without being too oversubscribed (you'll probably get it if you put it down as your first choice!). Although it is one of the more expensive of the halls, the flats are of high quality and so the price is worth it, and you get an ensuite. Cleaning is very limited, there is no flat cleaner! One of the few downfalls of Leodis. However, central spaces are kept clean. The social experience at Leodis is fantastic and you will make new friends in other floors and blocks, as well as your own. Can't really comment on the common room: never really used it although I know there it is well facilitated. I would highly recommend Leodis. It is in my opinion the nicest and most social accommodation I have visited.
