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.

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.

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.

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.
