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.
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.
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.
Was in block A last year, top floor with no lift was abit annoying at first but got over it. It's as social as you want it to be tbf you hide out in your room all year you'll probably have a shit time because nobody can be arsed to walk up all them stairs. Rooms are decent size as is kitchen main problem me and flat mates had is the wankness of chairs and sofas despite looking nice they're cheap and nasty, do not expect your deposit back unless you plan on tip toeing around the flat all year. The flat must be spotless for inspections or the bitch who works downstairs will try and get you flogged and stuff, management are shit, maintenance guys are sound piss off the security and they'll hold a grudge until the day you leave. Despite the rant had a sick first year and always held pres due to having the nicest flat out of friends so yeah I'd say it's a good choice just don't let them fuck you in the arse because trust fam they will try
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
