Accommodation - University of Leeds


We have a range of accommodation for you to choose from - modern multi-storey blocks on large sites, smaller traditional buildings on campus and everything in between!

If you don't want to cook for yourself and you're happy to eat specific times of the day, then the catered accommodation might suit you best.

Traditional catered facilities can be found in Devonshire Hall, where meals are served in the main dining hall within the residence. Devonshire Hall serves breakfast and an evening meal Monday to Friday, brunch and evening meal on a Saturday and lunch on a Sunday. There are also a number of 'formal' meals each year held at Devonshire.

There's no extra cost for formal dinners and you don't have to attend if you don't want to, but they're usually fun events.

You'll also receive a Refresh Card when you move in. You can top it up online and use it to purchase meals, drinks or snacks from any of the University catering outlets on campus.

Catered residences on campus, including Charles Morris Hall, Ellerslie Global Residence and Lyddon Hall, receive a ‘Refresh card Meal Plan Package’. You can use this to 'purchase' food 8am - 7pm Monday to Friday and 10am - 2pm at the weekend. Meals can be taken from the Refectory, next to the Students' Union, and Hugo, the Camionnette Cafe, at set meal times detailed below.

Your card can also be used like a regular 'Refresh Card' so you can top it up online and use this balance to buy meals, snacks and drinks from any University catering outlet on campus at anytime. 

This method offers you more flexibility in terms of what you eat and when, it also gives you the chance to socialise with students from outside your own hall. Remember that all of our catered residences also have kitchen facilities to enable you to make a snack or light meal.

You can find out more about the 'Refresh card Meal Plan Package' on the University’s Catering Service website - Great Food at Leeds

There's at least one vegetarian option at each meal and when beef or pork dishes are on the menu an alternative is always made available. Unfortunately we're not able to serve Halal, kosher or vegan food; during Ramadan we can provide food for you to eat after sunset.

If you have special dietary requirements (e.g. diabetes) or food allergies, we will try to help, but if you are very specific about the kind of food you like to eat, you may be more suited to self-catering accommodation.
