Housing
Type of housing: Student Flats
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House

I would prefer to rent a student house on the private rental market if I was to go back to Leeds because it might be a bit cheaper.

I was very lucky to live with only English students as this is the best way to learn the language properly. My flatmates became close friends and they were also a great help in the beginning as they would assist me with getting to know my way around Leeds. The rent was twice the amount of what I would have paid for the same standard of housing in Norway, but housing is quite expensive in the U.K. We had cleaners coming by every week, but I would have prefered to do it myself. My overall experience with the accomodation was very good.

I was a nice accomodation beacuse the host university offered to me some of them to choose, but i had to do it from Spain so i did not know how was. My room was small, and the appartment was a few dirty, but fro me this year was relly good so i did not think so much about the accomodation, i am just enjoy with everything. Now, if i think about an accomodation i prefer an private appartment or a house, but always sharing with other people.

Housing
Type of housing: university accomodation but not on campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I think sharing a house with other international students and british students would have made me more independent and would have impropved contacts! I remember the house-parties and they were great!

I liked it, it was a bit dissappointing that my preferences weren't really taken into account. And it was a shame that not all uni-accomodation had internet acces. For the rest Oxley was great, the surroundings were really nice, a lot of green, good bus connection, although the buses were never on time.

Housing locations at Leeds vary greatly. I was less then a five minute walk to campus, while other housing options were 4 miles away or in dodgy areas. Montague Burton was the name of my flat complex and in my opinon is the best choice for a foreign student. It was close to campus, had laundry facilities on site, and each room had high speed internet access.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I wanted to meet English people and I have heard thet university accomodation is often with other international students. And it is a much more free way of living. However I would concider trying to find other students to share a house, could be a nice way to meet new people not necessarily studying the same uni courses although there is alwas the risk that you don't get along.

I really appreciated the fact that they helped me with the housing before I travelled there. Everything was arranged in advanced and they guided me through all the proccess.
