ACCOMMODATION

Option 1: Homestay and Private Home Accommodation

A homestay is where you live with a family in Leeds. You can eat dinner with the family, practise speaking with them and enjoy your own room. You are part of the family, and you will be able to learn about the city and the culture in Leeds.

Private home accommodation is also living with a home environment, but it is bigger and you have less of the family atmosphere. There are more than 4 students, and you can meet other students from all over the world.

HOSTS INTERNATIONAL

Our partners at Hosts International provide good quality homestay in Leeds for individual students and groups. You can choose your package and live with a family in Leeds. You can choose a range of packages, including B&B, shared room and private bathroom.

Hosts International are British Council accredited.

Prices start from £135 per week to £210 per week (extra supplements may apply).

 

 Why should I stay in homestay or private home? Homestay means that you stay with a family in Leeds, speak English to them and learn about their life in the UK. It also means you have a family to help you with any problems. 

You can have a real English experience and practise your English more! Private homes are bigger, with more students, so if you enjoy a hostel atmosphere or want to make international friends, this is a good choice for you.

What problems might happen here? Sometimes, students and homestays have different ideas. Homestay and privates homes are not a hotel, and the hosts are not servants. Life in the UK might be very different to your country and it is important that you try to adapt, like the host family should try to adapt for you. For example, homestays are not usually in the city centre because people in the UK like to live outside the city. Most of our homestays and private homes also work, and so cannot be at home for you all day. Before you book, you must read all the information and ask questions if you are not happy. You can find more information in our Homestay Information Pack.

Option 2: University Halls

If you would like more of your own space, we can help you to find a room in one of the many university halls in Leeds. 

You can meet other students and live cloese to the city centre. You can get en-suite rooms or catered packages.

Prices:  start at £120 per week to £200 per week (depending on length of stay and accommodation type).

Why should I stay in university halls?

University halls give you privacy and independence while you study. Students usually stay there for several months, so you can meet lots of other students and make new friends. Usually, student halls are near to the city centre.

What problems might happen here?

You will usually need to cook and clean for yourself unless you choose a catered package. You cannot usually stay here on a short booking (less than 12 weeks). It might be more difficult to make friends if you live in the flats.

Option 3: Serviced Apartment

If you would like to live with friends or family, or to live independently, a serviced apartment with cleaning and furniture included is a great way to experience Leeds.

Our partners at The Apartment Network and LLA can help you to find an apartment with everything you need, including parking and a choice of many different locations.

Prices:  start at £199 per week to £300 per week (depending on location and type).

Why should I stay in a serviced apartment?

If you are coming to study with friends or would like to live independently, a serviced apartment is great. It is like a hotel, but you have more privacy and rooms to live in. Many of these apartments are in the city centre. You can stay for a short time or a long time.

What problems might happen here?

Although you will not need to clean, you must cook for yourself and you must try harder to speak English, especially if you live with people from your own country.



Leeds Language Academy has only a small number of our own accommodation available, and we cannot guarantee accommodation unless it is booked and you pay the deposit. Leeds Language Academy will not help with accommodation for non-students. Leeds Language Academy does not take responsibility for accommodation other than our own. Although Leeds Language Academy works to ensure our partners meet our standards, we cannot deal directly with problems from them.
