Leeds

178 Reviews by Students #46 out of 422 University locations

The North is super cheap. Being a southerner, I was very pleasantly surprised by leeds. It's a very modern city with tonnes to do. Great shopping and restaurants, and has some of the best nightlife in the country.

Leeds Student Life

Leeds is a lively and multicultural city with a large student population. It is quite a compact city, so it is easy to get around and has a community feel.

Cost of Living

Cost of living is what you'd expect from a big student city but it's doable

Can't fault Leeds. It's cheap, there is a massive amount of things to do both in the day and night, and the nightlife is one of the best in the UK. Great city.

Public Transport

Leeds is an accessible city making it very easy to get around by walking or cycling. If you want to go further afield, Leeds is also well connected by rail and coach services, with London just over two hours by train. It is also well connected to airports, Leeds Bradford International is 30 mins and Manchester airport is an hour away.

Shopping

When it comes to shopping, Leeds does not fall short! Trinity Leeds, with its iconic glass roof, houses 120 high-street shops, bars and restaurants. Grade I listed Kirkgate Market has over 400 stalls selling anything from flowers and textiles to loose leaf tea. For designer brands, there is Harvey Nichols and Victoria Leeds. Whilst an eclectic selection of independent boutiques are housed in the beautifully restored Corn Exchange.

Top 10 Tips

1. Pub crawl. You haven’t experienced student life in Leeds until you’ve done the Otley Run – the infamous fancy dress pub crawl.

2. Summertime. There are plenty of reasons to stick around in Leeds during the summer – there’s the vibrant Leeds Carnival (Europe’s oldest West Indian carnival) and of course the epic Leeds Festival to name but a couple. 

3. Hungry? If you and your mates can’t agree on a restaurant, try Red Hot World Buffet in The Light centre for an all-you-can-eat buffet in a whole range of international cuisines. 

4. Entertainment. The Leeds Light Night in October is an evening of free performances and exhibitions around the city. It’s the perfect introduction to Leeds and very entertaining.

5. Headingley. Head to Headingley for pretty much everything a student needs – from shops and cafes to launderettes to pubs and bars.

6. Discount. Visit studentbeans.com/uk for some awesome deals, including discounts at many popular shops, cafes and restaurants as well as special offers on entertainment and experiences.

7. First Direct Arena. For an unforgettable night save up your pennies and visit the First Direct Arena for music, comedy, dance or sport, they host some legendary acts and huge names.

8. Travelling? If you’re travelling on a budget don’t forget to check the Megabus website before spending a small fortune on train tickets or petrol. You can get a ticket to London and many other destinations for just £1 if you time it right.

9. Meal out? For a meal out take a browse around Burley. There are lots of pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy a wide variety of cuisines. Try a couple out and you’ll know where to take the parents.

10. Cinema. Whether you are a film buff or just go to watch movies on rainy days, you’ll love Hyde Park Picture House which is a friendly, local, independent cinema. Plus there is a young person’s membership which is free to join and you can get discounted tickets for just £5!

Leeds is an amazing city for things to do. There are always plenty of places to eat and drink out, great places to shop and quirky places to visit.

You can budget effectively and still treat yourself to the nice/more expensive things! read more

Living is too expensive,...

Living is too expensive, if you can travel from home, travel from home. Even with a 5.5k maintenance, I could afford hardly anything. Ideally you want to eat in, even if it means eating a raw onion or having spaghetti and ketchup every day for 3 weeks. Milanos and Pizza Pazza are good local takeaways, but everywhere else just ain't meaty enough. Prices, expensive. Atmosphere, not welcoming. You go on a night out to be happy. I struggle finding happiness when it's just me so I tried going out and making others happy, but apparently that's weird and creepy. Shopping: Get the coach to Manchester for £3 single, bigger variety. Only found one leather store. Couldn't find any hunting or fishing tackle shops. Public Transport is amazing, just too many train delays and cancelations. read more

Rent is quite expensive in the centre but worth it for the convenience. Eating out can be really expensive but there are wetherspoons everywhere so eating on a budget can be done. Entry and drinks are often expensive on nights out and you have to get tickets in advance which is a bit annoying. However, trinity is awesome... And deadly for your student loan read more

The city has so much to do and it's relatively close - there are so many eating places and places to have a night out you'd never get bored! Drinks and food is cheaper than where I am from (near London) so value for money is excellent. Bus drivers are generally nice and busses are usually punctual, although sometimes I've experienced the opposite. read more

Cost of living is what...

Cost of living is what you'd expect from a big student city but it's doable. There are so many places to eat and visit with friends whatever the occasion. The trinity centre makes Leeds a great shopping location and there are plenty other shopping rows plus the white rose mall just outside the city. Public transport is frequent and a lot cheaper than I expected too. Nights out are great! Something for absolutely everyone! read more

Stay away from Call lane unless you have a tendency for drug abuse. Perfect collection of restaurants and bars catering for both peasants and the landed gentry. Make sure you find the nicer places first otherwise you'll end up being a promoter... nobody likes club promoters read more

Eating out is expensive...

Eating out is expensive for students anywhere. Leeds is known for its night scene for a reason with numerous clubbing events every night and the famous Otley Run bar crawl. People even come from neighbouring towns and counties just for a night out. Also with world class shopping arcades each with its own unique design and architecture, if you're not studying here you will have to visit it at least once. read more
