Parents and guardians

Starting university is a really exciting time, but we understand that, as a parent, you can also feel anxious about your son or daughter moving away from home. 

We hope the following information will help explain the accommodation application, allocation and payment process.

Our parents' newsletter also has tips for moving into our accommodation and tells you about the support services available to your son or daughter whilst they are living with us.

Our guarantee

We guarantee an offer of accommodation to new, single, undergraduate students who have applied by the 1 July deadline. Prospective students who apply after the deadline (or through clearing) are not guaranteed accommodation, but we will try very hard to make them an offer.

We always house new undergraduates together so your son's or daughter's flatmates will also be new to Leeds and the University.

We also house postgraduate students and returning undergraduate students.
