My experience has been very pleasant, the staff here are lovely and maintenance issues get resolved very quickly. The only problems I have had is with the students. The main door to my flat was kicked in one day when I came back, aswell as the outer layer of the kitchen window being smashed. This is not a reflection of Unite, or the staff here at JB however, be careful for the other students. It's in a good location and has good social aspects, you will find friends easily just be careful as some people think they're too good to talk to others outside of their group. Can be cliquey but that again is not a reflection of the accomplishments but the people. Didn't find it too be too noisy apart from my flat mate blasting techno when he gets a shower.
Wifi not great and but far out from city centre but good overall
Very nice, very fun. Super cool- best area ever ! Love the reception team always giving out free fruit! Lot's of edgy londoners and dj decks. Luscious nature walks closeby can go and visit the goat for a 12/10 experience. Biggest benefit not having to walk through a reception desk on the way in makes it a lot more homely and a lot less like prison than other accomodations. Defintely apply and cross your fingers for the refurbished luxury double beds.
Great accommodation, friendly staff and nice flats!
Although it’s one of the best accomedations for social experience, you will get SICK of the half an hour walk to uni every single day, especially when it’s raining. You will have to wake up half an hour earlier than everyone else on ur course, which will start to get so annoying, especially after night outs as you will be exhausted and not able to do any work. The walls are quite thin too so can hear everything going on. Would reccomend you just choose a accomedatuon on campus.
I chose James bailie last year as I wanted to enjoy uni and have a good time socially, however this was not a good accomedation. The showers are disgusting when you move in and everyone who I know says there is mould in the showers. The walls are so thin you hear every single thing going on in other peoples rooms as well as other floors even. Never get any time to sleep as (although I like to party) people have music on all night every night, and everyone says you can’t do any work in the accomedation halls, so have to go to the library, which is a half an hour walk away and is not a nice walk especially when it’s dark or raining. If any one says the walk to uni is “cute”, trust me it’s not. Would 100% reccomend to choose an accomedation on uni campus. All together would give these halls a 3/10.
If you think it's a cute walk to the uni whilst staying here you are sadly mistaken, be prepared to leave half an hour before lectures if you don't want to awkwardly sit at the front. Also, walking back to JBP past Hyde Park late at night? Good luck! The rooms are either depressingly small (some of my flatmates' bathroom doors hit their room door and their bed lol) or grossly outdated with only semi working electricals. Maybe if you're looking for a party life this place is great but I would hardly call it the most socialable halls. Screw all the other reviews, this place is overpriced for what they give you and how socialable your flatmates are is completely pot luck so save some coin and get actual nice rooms at Henry Price
If you want to do first year at Leeds properly, JBP is the place to be. Most happening halls, really sociable and lively, and far enough from the uni that you can escape all the stress.
James Baillie park is hands down the best plae on earth no questions asked. I have met all of my best mates here and we have honestly had the best time. JB is so chilled and has the sickest parties so defo come here if ur cool
Come to this halls if you want a relaxed experience with no stupid rules and annoying wardens! Great social life, 25 min walk from uni, lovely spacious kitchens. Always noisy but that never bothered me.
Such a good social atmosphere. So much fun. Parties n play all day. I don't know how but every person at this accommodation bloody good looking. By far the best uni accommodation.
At JBP you get one shelf in the fridge, 2 shelves in total for other food/pans, half a drawer of freezer space(!), a bin in your room, really big desk, full body-length mirror in the wardrobe, & a desk lamp etc. Washing & drying laundry costs £4.50 in total per wash. I love the leafy location & have a nice view of Meanwood from my window, but the walk to uni takes 30 mins as my building is on the other side of uni (conference auditorium). The shower is small but can go as hot as you'd like (even though you suffocate after about 15 mins) and the water pressure is brilliant. Cons: The ventilation is awful & I had a really bad mould situation with it growing all over the windowsill and on my curtains, even after keeping the window open and cleaning it, so Maintenance replaced the curtains and I got a dehumidifier which does help (again I'm lucky with this as I know a lot of people who haven't had any help with it). I don't mind JBP but would probably choose differently if doing it again.
Accommodation was okay for the price however would have liked an elevator for my building and more washing machines
Probably the best off-campus accommodation in my opinion. Had a great time here.
JAMES BAILLIE PARK IS THE BEST HALLS DO NOT CHOOSE ANYWHERE ELSE. FULL OF CHILL PEOPLE, RIGHT NEXT TO HEADINGLEY( pubs food shops) WHERE ALL THE OTHER ON CAMPUS DON'T EVEN KNOW EXISTS OR EVER VENTURE TOO. ALSO LIVELY N NOONE EVER GETS TOLD OFF :) xx
Due to the fact I am in a basement flat I feel as though I am not offered a good value for what I am paying however James baillie is a nice halls in a great location and is very social.
overpriced for distance away from uni and distance away from a supermarket
Love it, wouldn't have chosen anything else
The colour scheme is a little awry, and the rooms a little small, but its mostly pretty cozy. JB has a reputation for being really social, but I didn't really see any of that this year, there does always seem to be flat parties though. Everything provided is pretty basic student accom stuff, and there is a bit of a lack of cupboard space. The cleaner comes once every two weeks, but they don't take the bins out and your kitchen has to be fairly okay if they're gonna clean it, and they won't clean your room. The ensuite is very basic and the shower is quite small, but the water pressure is amazing. Kitchen and bedroom size vary pretty greatly from what I've seen. Nobody really uses the common room, but it is there I guess. There are nicer halls to be honest, I would prefer Leodis for interior decoration. The location is pretty nice though, can be a bit far to walk on some days but its pretty safe, I would say.
Best place on earth. JBP for life.
Extremely fun place to live so far.
Bit further from campus but very sociable
Was really good value for money, in the best location in leeds only 20 minutes walk from the university, great common room with plenty to do in, staff were all friendly and helpful.
Black mould in shower, unable to get clean myself. Cold rooms, I had to buy a heater. Very nice people in the site office and happy to help with lots of problems. A little too relaxed about some rules ie. smoking inside. Not given any opportunities to meet new people in the accommodation. The common room is very small and cold.
It was okay. The site is pretty, but I would have preferred somewhere closer. The road going up to the site is long, a bit wobbly, and very dark at night! There isn't enough fridge/freezer space. Not all blocks have lifts, which isn't good if you're on the top floor! Residence staff were very helpful (especially Roger!) and communal areas were always really clean.
Lots of drugs and poor security. Also you can't get into other blocks which sucks. Plus, the showers are tiny.
I came to leeds a girl, I will leave a nitty woman
25 minute walk to uni, small rooms, below average bathrooms and kitchens. Never any hot water.
Only downfall is that it's about a 20 minute walk from uni, really social and plenty of space compared to many other accomodations. No one uses our common room however, it's not too great!
Do not understand why I am paying £5000+ for this halls! no tv included and the social area e.g kitchen has no real sofas so flat couldn't fit together in comfort. Cleaner should clean hallway as well as kitchen. Location is okay but the road is on a hill! Make sure you're fit. Laundry cost is shocking; constantly having to save up to do a wash. Definitely have room for double beds in the room but obviously Unite decides to be cheap. Heating in room was disappointing in first semester; had to buy an oil heater for extra warmth.
