We understand that moving away from home to live in student accommodation is almost as important as finding the right place to study.

The majority of our accommodation is offered to first year students on our undergraduate degree courses and a certain number of rooms are allocated to foundation diploma students moving in from outside the area. We offer accommodation at either Carlton Hill or Liberty Park, alternatively some students go into shared housing.

The benefits of staying in the accommodation we offer are:

  • You'll be living with other creative students from Leeds Arts University
  • You'll be living in shared flats, so you'll get to know more students from across all of our degree courses
  • Our accommodation is well located so you can be sure you'll be getting the most out of Leeds from when you first arrive
  • We ensure the accommodation meets the high standards you expect
  • Accommodation is safe and secure
  • Rent costs are reasonable, the quality and facilities at the accommodation exceeds other properties of a similar cost in other institutions

Neither Carlton Hill or Liberty Park are owned or managed by the University, however we have excellent relationships with both accommodation suppliers and a guaranteed number of rooms are allocated for our students.

How to apply for accommodation

Applying for your accommodation is easy, simply follow the steps below…

  • Once you have accepted your undergraduate offer you will be sent a link to the accommodation form via email. Please note, rooms will only be allocated to those who have made a ‘firm’ acceptance through UCAS.
  • Complete the online form to request your accommodation.
  • Your request will be sent through to the appropriate accommodation provider, who will get in contact with you directly. This may take a couple of weeks.
  • A contract and deposit request will be sent to you by the accommodation provider via email. Your accommodation is only secure once you have returned these to the accommodation provider.

We do not guarantee students a place at either Carlton Hill or Liberty Park. Rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so we recommend you complete the accommodation form as soon as possible after accepting your place.
