Liberty dock is a nice halls of residence with lovely en-suites, 3/4 beds and decent size rooms. However it is very far from uni and the location isn't studenty at all, so the location is poor. Social areas are good, however they aren't utilised at all. The gym is a positive. Communal areas within flats are poor,there's no sofa or real place to relax, which is a real let down. I personally wouldn't recommend living in liberty dock

Good accommodation, was there for first year of uni, its clean and great value for money. En-suite bathrooms which is a bonus, security/safety is very good too. Not close to University of Leeds however, so location is one of the things that isn't great if you want to be in short walking distance from the uni. Social events got better towards the end of my year at Liberty Dock, have a good social bar area too. All in all, nice halls.

I'd probably rate Lib Dock 3/5 stars. Facilities (Common room, gym, washing machines) were pretty good - washing machines were aplenty and easy to use (but a bit pricey), there are pool tables (although a bit shit quality), a ping pong table, and free sky sports in the CR. The kitchens and bedrooms I felt were an adequate size and the en-suites and bed size were brilliant. The rooms could do with more storage though. The staff are all nice and pretty tolerant (other than ultra grumpy Alan), contrary to other halls so I hear. The location is good for going out into town but inconvenient to go to uni (around 30 min walk or 20 min bus for £1) and esp. headingley for sport, but gives you better knowledge of city centre. If I was in halls again I'd pick a cheaper one nearer to uni (james baille, mont. burton). Also got ripped off £100 in my deposit for damaged walls and mattress even though there was minimal if any damage. Socially, LD was what you made of it yourself (I had a great time).

Liberty Dock has turned out to be fantastic considering I had planned to apply to move. The rooms are spacious with ¾ beds and the shower is really powerful. Only downside about the room is the lack of storage, so you will probably need to bring your own drawers. The social life at Liberty Dock is amazing, we have had a great time here and the security guards are very reasonable with pre drinks and noise levels ect. We have a bbq and benches for the summer. Its so close to town it's very easy to go out for drinks or to get to the clubs by walking. The distance from university is a small downside but you quickly get used to the walk which takes 35mins or there is a bus 3 times an hour which gets to uni in 15/20mins for £1. It's handy walking back through town to grab anything you need. It feels safe here and the security guards are amazing, especially Naz, and they will keep your keys on a night out so that you don't loose them. I wouldn't have chosen anywhere else for first year now.

Liberty Dock is such a nice place to live. The location is one of the furthest from uni however the journey is not as bad as you think when you originally arrive here. The walk to/from uni takes around 30 minutes. You can also get a £1 bus which comes every 15 mins, the journey is around 20-40 minutes depending on traffic. The halls themselves are lovely. The rooms are probably the nicest out of all other residences at Uni of Leeds and every one has an ensuite. You get a desk, a 3 level shelf, a wardrobe, a notice board and a 3/4 bed which is practically a double. The kitchens are nice and modern, however, there is no living or social area in the flats so keep that in mind. The heating tends to work but if there are problems it gets sorted quickly. There is a Tesco Express just over the road which is super convenient. Despite what people say, Liberty Dock is super sociable because it's a tight knit community. The staff here are so nice and helpful, and the site is safe and secure.

Do not apply for these halls and if placed here move asap. Being way too far from campus and on an unreliable, infrequent bus route (which doesn't run on a Sunday and stops at 19:30 other days) makes for a poor university experience. Living here makes it difficult to participate in extra curricular activities and even getting back from uni later on in the afternoon and you feel somewhat stranded/isolated from other first years with not living in hyde park/ headingley or on/near campus. Value for money here is also poor. Tiny kitchen with no relaxing areas/ sofas. Applied for a room transfer and enjoy my university experience much more now that i live near to (a 30 second walk from) campus.

Unless you have an exceptionally nice flat (people wise) then move as soon as you can via room swap or transfer. Living in liberty dock made me hate my first three weeks of uni, in my opinion it should not be allowed to be student accommodation at all. I am moving to Henry Price because it is so depressing in liberty dock. Don't choose to live here and if you end up here MOVE AS SOON AS YOU CAN

I had to live with some really dirty people. The trash can could stand in the middle of the kitchen and rot for about two-three weeks unless I took it out. Even if only a few in the flat clean the place, the accommodation office won't help you. They say there isn't really much they can do if some don't want to take responsibility. I went down to the office several times to complain. The last days I was literally so frustrated that I cried. The last days there were two of us cleaning for six people. They told us if we didn't we would get punished because they would check the place once we left (when the others left they "forgot" to check) and that it wasn't really their problem if someone didn't help. I really thought that student accommodation would help its students and make sure it was fair.... We did end up cleaning and I left it pretty nice. However, they decided to deduct money from my deposit anyways without telling me what for and now I'm only getting half (fees and other st

- Very far from uni with a limited bus service that gets very busy/crowded to the point of not being able to get on at peak times (9am) - Distance from uni prevents being able to get actively involved in campus life without extensive planning of how to get there/back - spent a fortune on ubers! - Staff are very uninterested in any maintenance problems in the flat - No social life, very limited social interaction between the blocks - For the money you pay for the accommodation there is no space to socialise or relax inside the flats aside from the small kitchen - The gym is small and gets very overcrowded - Tends to be used as an overspill for people who do not get their first accommodation at the University of Leeds

Positives: -The rooms are nice and spacious -You can store things under your bed -Kitchen is modern, you get 2 cupboards per person -Maintenance is on the ball, any problem they fix it almost straight away -Really good power shower -Heating works MOST of the time... -Most secure residences, always feel safe -Naz the security guard on a night is really nice -Lots of washing machines and dryers -Pretty canal nearby which you can pretend you'll go for runs along -Small but half decent gym which you can also pretend you'll use -Really nice area of Leeds Negatives: -Not that much room storage, only a small wardrobe and one draw. Bring more storage with you. -The lifts break a lot! -Fridge and freezer is way too small -Miles and miles away from uni, it's a 50 minute walk up hill with all your uni stuff you don't want to do -You need to purchase a bus pass as soon as you're here £260 will be worth it in the long run -The buses aren't great at turning up on time -Not very social

The location is probably its biggest let down. Although very close to the city centre and a couple clubs, it is around a 40 min walk to the university and the buses arent great. Also, it is right next to the canal which has flooded easily a few times over winter and i've been left worrying for my ground floor flat! It doesnt have much social opportunities as the bar doesn't get used.

Liberty Dock has really lovely rooms with a lot of space! The communal kitchen is really nice and so are the social spaces, eg bar in the centre of the complex. The staff are really helpful and it's not hard to find other students you get on with. However, everyone I've spoken to here agrees that the distance from campus is the main downside to this accommodation. Whilst the walk is nice, the bus is only a pound so it's very tempting and prices just add up. A couple of other small issues for me would be the lack of storage in the rooms (not a very big work surface either) and the fact there isn't a sofa in the flat for everyone to chill and watch a movie on!

Terrible. No living area just a kitchen with a s***ty table in it, far away from Uni, expensive, too hot and small rooms. Also with being right next to the bus stop all I can here is buses every 15 minutes.Therefore cannot open the window because the noise is unbearable. Only good things are the bed sizes and the shower. But I expect more for over £120 a week.

Loads of people are put off by the distance from uni but it's honestly so good it makes up for it and you get over getting the bus or walking to uni and walking home from uni through town is a god send, you can just grab something for tea on your way back or pop into the shops dead quickly. Tesco express round the corner is so good for when you need something quickly. The canal right outside your door is nice if you like to go jogging. The rooms are a great size and the layout is nice, showers are also decent and on par with you're ones at home

Nice, well furbished kitchen and bedrooms with a comfy 3/4 bed and en-suite with a powerful shower. The social space is the bar but not many go in there, its never very busy. Becomes quite a big annoyance not being on campus and having to work 30/40 minutes or get the bus to uni - especially if you only have one lecture. Still a lot of students here so you don't feel out the way too much though.

do what you can to not come to these halls. They're decent quality, but they're ridiculously far from town compared to other halls, not what you would expect for you money compared to other halls, and my experience of the management is ridiculous. If you like to go out on the weekend and make a bit if noise in your flat, as most do, you'll probably be getting in trouble and fined as I have, and if your playing music loud at any point after 11 security WILL be coming through. Basically if your looking for fun, or a place which is actually your own, don't come here. Other halls are not like this.

Comparative to other Leeds University Halls this is the worst value for money. It is roughly £117 plus a £2 return into Leeds by the bus a day. Ultimately you're looking at £127 a week in costs plus the loss of 5 hours of your life a week in the bus (30minute a journey at the very least). Comparative to central village which is the same price at £127, you don't get a communal TV, a seatee, a particularly big social space, or air conditioning. It's a twenty minute walk into Leeds and 45 to campus, on top of that you're not really near much nightlife or anything close to social life. The truth of the matter is, this is the worst value for money and overall one of the poorest university halls at the university of Leeds.

These halls can be a bit far from campus and so you do feel a little lost compared with the likes of Central Village etc, but with regards to the city and nightlife it is great and just a 5 minute walk away. The environment around is nice with the gentrified Leeds Dock area, if not a little quiet, but the halls itself have their own little community feel. The living areas are generally modern and roomy and the 3/4 bed is a must, the only thing they lack is a living room per flat, but as explained theres the bar and common area that make up for that. The staff are genuinely nice and make you feel welcome and secure. I'd happily recommend Liberty Dock as a great alternative to the more in demand halls to choose.

The fact the accommodation is quite far from campus is overshadowed by the fact that this is a very nice accommodation. There is a bar with cheap drinks, and a gym included, and there is a very homely vibe about the place. However I would recommend students to try for leodis at leeds, as it is definitely the best.

The massive downfall with liberty dock is the half hour walk to uni (in the mornings), but there's a bus for £1 that takes you there. Putting that aside, it's in a gorgeous location by the river, you're one of the closest halls to town (so really easy getting to and from a night out in town) and also really easy to save money by popping into the market on your walk home from uni. It is one of the most sociable halls around, fully from experience I've made stronger friendships here than any of my friends in central village etc, they've all recently been renovated so are nice and new for you! There is an issue with there not being a lounge, but you tend to just hang out in eachothers rooms or the kitchen. Overall it's like a cute little community and I definitely wouldn't have chosen anywhere else to live (even if central village was my first choice!).

Most horrendous halls I could have had the misfortune to be placed in - the uni paid no attention to our application preferences and dumped all of us that didn't get placed in our first choice accommodation in Liberty Dock. Do not know a single person that likes it there, nor do I know a single person that wanted to be there. I wouldn't say it ruined my first year of uni experience, but I definitely believe students in other accommodations are happier than 90% of those in Liberty Dock. SURVIVAL TIPS: - bring extra storage (important) as there is minimal storage in the rooms - don't just stick in your blocks - go to different blocks and invite them to pre drink with you, make sure you do this in freshers week - a mini fridge to keep in your room would be handy - the fridges don't have much space - don't be too shocked when you see the actual size of the kitchens - also don't be too shocked when you realise there are no sofas - never go to Space (nearest club)

For £118 a week you get a large double bedroom, a modern ensuite and modern kitchen facilities - their is a gym room for your access and a bar, although not many people seemed to use the bar during my time here. Liberty Dock is a very social accommodation, with a party atmosphere that made my time here enjoyable - everybody became friends with everybody and there was a real sense of community. The only downsides were that we were a 40 minute walk from the uni campus. However, we are a 15 minute walk into town and the walk to uni often seems so much shorter. The bus stop is right outside if that is preferable. Lib Dock never seems to be anybody's first choice, but don't be dissapointed if you're put here - it's a very social uni accommodation.

Really good accomodation; met so many people. Great for the social side, its close to the city although a bus ride to uni. But due to it being out of the way you spend a lot of time with people from all over the accommodation. Rooms come with really nice ensuites. The accomodation has a bar although its over priced when you can just go to tescos around the coner.

In a beautiful area along the canal but quite far away from the uni campus. The right side for the shops and club though, and there's a dedicated, cheap bus service!

No cleaners or people checking the flats during the holidays resulted in us losing food/ as our fuse tripped the electricity so the freezer was off the whole time, and considering what we pay I feel we should have had cleaners for things like the oven/fridge/microwave while we weren't there as many other halls do.

so expensive and doesn't include washing costs or the cost of travel to the uni. only have a kitchen- no sofa/social area. other side of the city to all other halls and uni- harder to socialise with course mates.

Yes, it's far away from uni. But it's close to town and all of the clubs which is where you will be spending the most time in first year anyway! There's also a regular bus which only costs a £1. The general area it's located in is idyllic and the walk to town is lovely along the river aire. Its also one of the best halls in Leeds for socialising, because it's like a little community. The security guards are also very friendly and more like parents. The halls are generally modern and up to date and the facilities are good too! Highly recommended.

Great facilities. Rooms are great and so is security but the social aspect is terrible. The place has a bar that is rarely used and taken advantage of. They do odd events that are poorly advertised and no one likes to get involved in them. Also when you are from another uni, eg this place has people from Leeds Beckett, The Art school etc. and the students don't mix well. Noses get turned up at you and people rarely mix when they know that your block isn't from their uni.
