Loved living here that much I’ve booked again for next year! Nothing is too much for the staff so friendly and welcoming, say morning everyday n always have little get together in the common rooms. Maintenance is great any problems are sorted as soon as possible. Rooms are spacious and kitchen/living area is big with everything you need, all the other students are so friendly and plan to go out and meet up, it’s close to everything including the city and the unis, the uphill is rather annoying but you get used to it. Located near other student accommodations so always close to other students. overall love it here, definitely recommend.

Student Review: 4.9 /5
By member1368662 On 4th May 22

Amazing place to stay especially as a first year who didn’t get allocated a decent enough place to stay through the university so when choosing other accommodations privately this one stood out as the most modern with friendly staff. In a prime student location with around 7 other student accommodations in the area so always lively and easy to socialise and only short distance to the university of leeds and into the city centre. Staff are amazing and will do anything for you, they hold lots of social events in the social areas including a DJ once coming in, lots of free food and buffets, karaoke nights, themed quizzes with prizes. Literally no other accommodation does this!! Great amenities including a gym, cinema room and study spaces. Wifi is always fast and working. 24hr security most of time so can get parcels out of working hours. Overall would tell anyone to stay here if going private and not with the uni allocation

Friendly staff, good location and clean. Rooms are bigger than expected. Nice social spaces as well. However the walls are paper thin so can always hear flatmates talking and upstairs neighbour walking around and slamming their doors shut etc which makes it hard to sleep and concentrate on work. Very noisy accommodation so don't recommend if you are doing your masters or in final year like me. Also opposite a construction site which adds to the noise and also lack of privacy as builders look into the windows a lot. Fire alarms go off frequently and it takes them ages to sort it out. Recently it took about an hour. Security could be better as well as it is not 24/7 and if you contact them out of hours it takes ages for them to come. Overall it is OK but I am sick of the excessive noise.

I'm in my final year of university in Leeds, and it was a hassle searching for accommodation for this year. I found The Foundry via a Google search and loved the amenities offered and how close the accommodation is to the City Centre and my university. I love my room (the bed is a great size), there is a lot of desk space and storage. However, the kitchen is a bit smaller than I had expected. There is also a great lounge area I use when my friends visit. I am honestly happy with my choice.

I have had a good experience staying at The Foundry so far (2021/22), the facilities are all up to a great standard, and it is a good location from the different university’s campuses. When I have put in maintenance requests they have also been answered promptly The reception team of Amber and Holly have been incredibly helpful with any issues I have faced, especially Holly when I misplaced my fob key I would recommend people stay here if they are based in Leeds for their studies

It’s not so close to city center as you may expect it. For me it usually takes more than 20mins to walk to the Light, Morrisons and other places located in city center. However it’s not a problem to me because I can do some exercise. The staff here are very helpful and responsive. If you have any questions, just tell them!

security could be better improved - wouldnt say 24/7 on -site security would be necessary but some way of contacting security at any point of time would be assuring. - many a times other tenants are throwing big parties and causinf nuisance/fire alarm goes off and either no action is takwn or a couple of hours hv to pass before securiry team is there to turn off the alarm. internet is highly unstable at times, more of a problem during lockdown as all work/studies are now online - a more stable connection should be offered. management - overall security and possible improvements to facility maintenance - lifts not working and staying unrepaired throughout the weekend. wouldnt be too big of a problem for small occupancies over lockdown - but at full occupancy of accommodation + only one lift for whole 9 floors of the buildinf may hv u waiting rly long - by when you'll almost always certainly give up and take the stairs aftwr waiting for 10 mins

Hello,

Thank you for your review. Abodus endeavours to provide our residents with an excellent living experience, and we are very sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with your experience at The Foundry.

We would like to resolve any issues you may be experiencing, and we hope this response will help to address the concerns you have voiced in your review.

Please note that our security team is contactable 24 hours per day, and their response time to any fire alarms has always remained within our service level agreement.

While it has never been brought to our attention by any of our residents that the internet has been unstable, this is something we are happy to take action to resolve if we are made aware.

Fortunately, the lift at The Foundry has only broken down once in recent months. It is our aim to resolve any maintenance issues within a 24-hour period wherever possible, and we are proud to report that in this instance, we met that aim.

We hope the above has addressed your concerns accordingly, but if it has not, please do reach out to our team at The Foundry to discuss your concerns further.

Kind regards,

Abodus Student Living

Overall a great place to stay. The location is perfect as it’s near the city centre but far enough to avoid the noise and crowds and friendly staff on-site. The only downside are the thin walls as don’t block any sound.

A good place to stay in general. Very friendly reception team, especially Cameron - kudos! Prompt replies to email and maintenance requests, although I wouldn't say all of the maintenance attempts were a job well done. However, I do find the wifi to be unstable and drops quite frequently which is quite a pain during online classes.

I have been living at the Foundry for a couple of months now and couldn't be happier. A thing to note is that the images/virtual tours don't do the rooms justice, I was scared that my room would be small but its huge (premium ensuite). Same thing goes for the standard ensuite, its bigger than I expected. The kitchen is big and well equipped (incl. dishwasher). The bathroom is perfect - with a thermostat shower and good water pressure. The place is clean. The gym is sufficient for casual exercise. The staff are lovely and helpful. The terrace is very nice. I feel at home. Downsides? Not really. Obviously with students around there can be some noise, but its nothing too bad and noise complaints seem to get through alright. The internet is amazing, but I gave it a four star rating because it very occasionally comes up with lag spikes - this only persists for a few minutes though and wont affect most people. Location is good and is sort of the average distance from UoL and the centre.

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.

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.

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!

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!
