114 £ / sem. Decorate your student accommodation with colourful prints from On the Wall picture shop and street art from ArtOfficial boutique, both a 10-minute bus journey from home. If you’re in need of inspiration, make the 15-minute walk to peruse modern art at Leeds Art Gallery. While you’re in the city centre, sample tasting plates at Ambiente Tapas restaurant or devour Brazilian barbecue at Fazenda Leeds. Shop until you drop at the upmarket fashion stores in the glass-ceilinged Victoria Quarter shopping centre before finding a snug booth to settle into while you sup a pint at Whitelock’s Ale House.
Live an easy 15-minute walk from the University of Leeds and less than 20 minutes from Leeds Beckett University at The Triangle, or make use of the on-site parking and drive to either campus in less than five minutes. Load up your car with your weekly grocery shop at the Aldi in nearby Burley, or nip down to the Tesco Express on your doorstep to grab essentials for an impromptu pizza night at home with your flatmates. Celebrate the end of an assignment with takeaway from nearby Mylahore Leeds Deli.
Every morning, wake up in your double bed and open the curtains to let the light stream in. Hit the shower in your ensuite bathroom and select something to wear from your spacious wardrobe. Check your messages using the fast Wi-Fi, then head to the contemporary shared kitchen to greet your flatmates and make a cup of tea. Reach into the large fridge freezer and grab the milk to pour over your cereal, then sit at the breakfast bar and plan the day ahead.
After you’ve eaten, collect your bike from the free storage rail for the short cycle to class. When you get back home, you’ll be reassured by The Triangles’ 24/7 recorded CCTV system and secure fob entry. Chill out in the shared lounge on the leather sofas with your friends in front of the flat screen TV - if you don’t want to watch what everyone else is watching, there’s another TV point in your room. When you start to get sleepy, make your way to bed, so that you’re refreshed and ready for another busy day.
