I cannot recommend The Foundry enough! I lived in the Foundry for the whole of my Nursing Degree (3 years). The Foundry has to be one of the most impressive student accommodations in Leeds, especially for the price! The flats are modern, yet homely. I loved everything about my flat. The living area has a big American fridge freezer and a built in smart TV, which is supported by great WiFi! The bedrooms have amazing double beds with large under storage and a beautiful en-suite bathroom (which I must say is difficult to find in student accommodations). Also, the social spaces are amazing and perfect to meet new people. In particular, the lounge is perfect or hosting pre’s. Though, the best thing about The Foundry is the staff. They are always helpful, friendly and nothing was too much to ask, Michelle and James in particular made my experience living here so positive. The Foundry became my home away from home and I am sure any student that chooses to live here will feel the same.

Rooms have everything you could need, plenty of space and good storage. Kitchen areas well equipped (induction Hobbs so check your pans) Ground floor flat has extra space if you have the option it’s a good one to choose! Large bike storage area on ground floor. Maintenance team are helpful and respond to requests quickly.

The Foundry is such a great accommodation to stay in. Perfect for students with a good distance away from the Trinity Centre and the Universities. Couldn't have picked a better accommodation.

Thank you so much for a wonderful 2 years. Living here MADE my time here in Leeds! A massive thanks to Michelle and James who looked after us and always went above and beyond, they were always so friendly and made me laugh when I would stop and have a chat in reception. The location is perfect; only a short 15-20min walk to Uni, Town and the supermarket Aldi not too far away and easily accessible by bus! It really feels like the location is the best of both worlds! The gym is really great along with the social areas and cinema room and the fact that the accommodation has a bike store is really useful. The flats are amazing and have everything you need, and the rooms are spacious with a great vibe. I honestly had such an amazing time living at The Foundry, and despite University having its ups and downs (as expected), it was great to be able to come back to accommodation with such a pleasant environment and friendly people! The Foundry... you will be missed!

1. committed to providing 24-hour reception service, however, this service has been cancelled since in May; 2. committed to providing free printing/copying service, however, only be permitted to print 5 pages once. I hardly use this service as I printed in the school library before, but the university has closed temporarily, and I had a very important file which needed printing, so I asked for help and your staff refused me as my document page over 5 pages. I do not understand this rule, if maximum 5 pages can be printed at a time, how about I send 3 files (less than 5 pages) in twice or third times, will you help me print them? I am confused, will you have more reasonable and fail solutions? 3. though they did not do the wrong things, some staff's behaviours make me feel uncomfortable and impolite. No service attitudes!

I have enjoyed living here with my Guide Dog for two academic years now and couldn't imagine being anywhere else. Staff are incredibly friendly and inclusive, the location is fantastic for being so close to university and the city centre, and fellow students and residents are respectful, polite and quiet with never any noise related issues. The facilities are fantastic including the on-site gym, study rooms and social spaces and mail and laundry can be done with ease. The Foundry feels like my home away from home.

some staff of reception are not very friendly. The facilities in social room are quite old and even damaged so I seldom go to the social room.

There are many things to like about ‘The Foundry’. From its location to the staff and facilities. 'The Foundry' is quite the modern student accommodation, with very cosy rooms. It is just a walk away from the city centre, nightclubs and most universities which means no city centre chaos. The staff at 'The Foundry' are always very welcoming and helpful which I feel is quite important when looking for student accommodation. While booking, the staff at 'The Foundry' were able to allocate me with other first-year students which allowed me to make friends and therefore, settle in well - enhancing my university experience. When re-booking ‘The Foundry’ staff told me about the ‘cash-back’ offer and ‘refer a friend’ offer, which is really appealing, especially to a student!
