Don't go here if you're a fun person. Best thing is how close it is to Headingly.

Q&A


Q
Hello, Visited this weekend with my daughter. It is her first choice accommodation. If she was wanting shared bathroom facilities but also a bright room due to having vitamin D problems in the past would any of the blocks with this arrangement tick both boxes. The room we viewed this weekend was on the ground floor and was very dark to say the weather was great.

DO NOT CHOOSE TO STAY HERE!!! This place has pretty much ruined my first year at Uni. There is no social life here, you are treated like school children, and even though you pay a stupid amount of money the food and meal times are ridiculous. You are never allowed to take anything away with you from the refs to eat later.. if you do try to, you will be ridiculed by the patronising catering staff. The rooms are big but very old fashioned. The toilets are gross as is the tiny kitchen you have to share with pretty much the whole of Dev. The sport, drama, and music opportunities are pretty much non existent and you are sent to bed at 11pm or fined £100 for making noise after 11pm. If you want fun go to James Bailie and not Dev. The layout is bizarre and some students are far out and isolated. The formals are also pointless because you can never get on them and then if you do, once your at the formal you have to ask to go to the toilet like primary school kids. Hope this helps x

not the best not the worst, don't come here if you're really sociable and love going out... and if you stay in devonshire stay in the catered because self catered is really isolated doesn't really feel part of devonshire - not in main building. only good thing is the location and decent room size, hill is enough to put someone off this accommodation. taps are either stone cold or scorching hot, mold in my bathroom and had problems with ants. freezing rooms also. oh and the formals are really difficult to get

Hellish experience with flat mates and was not helped by the wardens at all. The flats are very small so if you don't get along with the people you live with, it is awful. It's overpriced too.

It's an amazing place, lots of events organised by the JCR Exec, both at Dev and in town and active in music if you are interested. Noise rules the same as any other Leeds University residence, its good to know its quiet after 11 pm, not everyone wants to party every night.

DO NOT STAY HERE! anti-social wardens shut down kitchen meet ups by quarter past ten on a Friday night! Not a welcoming start, what happened to northern friendliness! Thought Uni was meant to be work hard, play hard! Spend your money better elsewhere #imnottwelveanymore #notwelcometoLeedsUni

Had an amazing 1st year here and would highly recommeny choosing Dev! The food was good and there was plenty (sometimes seconds+fruit and stuff u could stash), wardens were a pain so we just went to James Baillie Hall after 11pm, so that was fine. Was superb having tennis and squash courts there, and the gym was decent. Rooms were nice with enough storage space, although this differed according to the block u were assigned to. Overall, had the best time here!!!

Love the place, the facilities and the community spirit- there is so much on offer! However they do enforce the noise warnings at 11pm sharp- so be warned.

If you like going out Dev is not the one, you have to be silent by 11pm and the sub wardens/night watchmen are rude and patronising. Although there's loads of facilities, the rooms and kitchens themselves are old and outdated, which makes the price a bit expensive, especially as you can get nicer halls on campus for a cheaper price. There are no cleaners, the bins get taken out everyday but the rest of the cleaning is up to you. I met some great people at Dev but i wish I'd picked other Halls like James Bailie or Henry Price.

It's a very sociable and friendly atmosphere. Anyone in 2nd or 3rd year you speak to who was in Dev has nothing but love for the place.

Amazing social atmosphere. Formal dinners and events give the hall a more collegiate feel and brings everyone together. Option of catered or self catered means there is a mix of people. The security staff can be difficult as the noise restriction at 23.00 is taken very seriously and pre drinks are often shut down (depending on the location of your flat I have found)

Rooms are decent, beautiful from outside, lots of grassy area, squash and tennis courts convenient and free whenever wanted, noise curfew annoying but wardens generally nice and help with maintenance problems quickly. Safe atmosphere. Food decent but times can be annoying, good location get to know Hyde park etc and headingly plus aware for second year. Loved time here wouldn't pick anywhere else.

Absolutely fantastic. Expensive compared to other halls but you get so much more. There are events almost every week, and big events about once a month. Additionally the facilities are extensive: gym, tennis courts, dance room, squash courts, fives courts, billiard room, common room, bar, music room, orchards and gardens, etc. Great for people who really want to get involved - there is a choir, orchestra, jazz band, multiple sports teams and they do a musical and a play every year. Loved it!

The place looks really good from the inside and the rooms are a good standard. Everyone there is really social and met the best people there and there are some good facilities like the gym and snooker rooms. Definitely glad I got Dev.

Really friendly and sociable (especially because I'm catered). Noise restrictions are annoying but you get used to them. Wish Dev was slightly closer to campus.

What they don't tell you is that music has to be turned off at 11pm but the wardens are a**eholes so expect them to come knocking around 10/10:30. Also all of the catered lot are boarding school snobs.

This hall is beautiful, a lot of the people are ex-public school students. The catered food is good and it's nice to have a hot meal after lectures.

Loved my time here, my friends made it and we had so much fun, really easy place to get to know people. If you need luxury with modern appliances and bedrooms then maybe not the best place, always ends up a bit dirty, put that's part of it I think. Would recommend to outgoing and independent freshers!

Definitely not worth the money as it is extremely expensive, especially for catered residents, where the food is awful and there is hardly any choice each night, the salad and fruit is not fresh and we are mainly served chips every single night. I have resorted to cooking my own meals and not going, although it is a complete waste of money.
