For what you get these halls aren't the worst. What is absolutely disgusting is the management and staff. For one, the allocation of rooms is completely poorly thought out. I am aware of some people that have been the only person of one nationality living in a flat in which the others are of the same nationality leaving them feeling completely excluded. Also the quality of maintenence is extremely poor. When I arrived at my room, it was in a disgusting state : mosquitoes covering the walls, black mould in the bathroom etc. Also I had an issue with my sink in that when ever the tap was turned on it essentially brought up sewage. This took three weeks to be fixed. When we had an issue with our kitchen sink the maintenence man flooded our entire kitchen, leaving the carpet damp and foul smelling. When we had inspections they failed us for things such as a leaky fridge and dared to charge us £30 for a cleaner. They are only interested in your money, which as a student isn't plentiful.

pros- - convenient grocery shopping at Morrisons , 20 mins walk away from Leeds uni - maintenance is really efficient. They get things fixed pretty quickly Cons- - admin/management staff are DISGUSTING (pls think twice if you think you wouldn't be dealing with them- truth is when you're in deep shit they're practically useless to seek for help - especially that dude called Matthew - we were shock to see outsiders in our kitchen out of nowhere. Like wow they brought ppl in to view out flat without giving ANY prior notice. Constantly woke up to 9am flat viewings with noise coming from strangers - disrespectful. We clearly indicated for a full-female flat. A new male tenant moved in and they did not even bother informing ahead - washers are dirty. Laundry room costs 2.50 per wash and 1 quid per dry pls keep in mind - rooms and bathrooms are small. Definitely not like what is been shown in pictures - gym rooms are available at certain times. Stinks too

Right in town next to Morrisons 15 minute walk to train station and to uni so location was perfect. 25 students on each floor so loads of people very close to you

Main thing about this was its location, easy to go to and from uni and town, didn't have to get taxis anywhere unless going canal mills

I was put into clv when I didn't get my first choice for halls (central village). When reading the reviews of where I was going to be living for the next year my heart literally sank at how negative they were and honesty thought it was going to ruin my uni experience. However there are some good points about clv 1) location is literally a 10/10. Right near the city centre, which was ideal for nights out, also really near uni 2) free access to gym upstairs (it's tiny so don't expect much) 3) basically right next to morrisons and the merrion centre where you can literally get all your essentials 4) kitchen and flat size is relatively bigger in comparison to others in different halls But however. Clv does have some bad points 1) wifi is utter shit. Sometimes you wouldn't get it for over and hour 2) I can only speak for myself, but my flat was in an utter state when I arrived eg- hadn't cleaned in kitchen, randomers clothes in wardrobes, Hoover was broken

Not a good experience, the mouldy kitchen and rooms and lack of security ruined my first year experience at uni

An accommodation which is in an amazing location - just 10 mins walk from the shops and a 15 min walk to Leeds uni. The perfect location! Also at £110 (2014/15 prices) it is well worth the value for money as it includes an en suite and a gym upstairs!

Great facilities, even better location that is 2 minutes walk from the centre of the city (great after nights out). However, because there are a mixture of Leeds met and uni students, the social side isn't great. It feels more like a hotel than halls which also makes it seem less sociable. I still had a great time though, made my best friends in my flat, and went to flat parties in friends halls.

Look for the 2 star review on Google. Really not worth staying at CLV Leeds if it can be avoided. Size wise, it's okay. Cleanliness wise, its poor (only due to other disgusting students in the building). Socially, it is horrific. It was literally impossible to be friends with my flatmates, and I know a lot of other tenants who hated their stay 2014-2015. See the Google reviews for more description.
