Are you looking for a short term letting option? If you are studying at the Language Centre (or another University of Leeds school) then you could apply for Homestay accommodation and live with a local family. Unipol Student Homes manages the Homestay programme on behalf of the University and all Homestay hosts subscribe to an accreditation criteria called the Homestay code. This ensures that high standards are met and maintained within all Homestay hosts. Homestay hosts offer a single bedroom, usually within 40 minutes of campus. You'll get breakfast and evening meals on weekdays, and breakfast, lunch and evening meals at weekends. Some hosts are flexible about meal provision. As well as improving your English, you learn lots about traditional British culture, it's a home from home! You'll also be supported by the Homestay Co-ordinator during your stay.
