Modern, purpose-built city centre living
In a great location, Liberty Dock is located right on the banks of the River Aire and offers a scenic short walk to the city centre. All rooms are en suite, and there’s a bar in the centre of the grounds to socialise, host events and play games.
There are regular buses to the University campus from right outside the residence. You’re also within easy reach of all local transport links, including Leeds railway station.
Run in partnership with Liberty Living, this residence has recently had a complete refurbishment and individual rooms are organised into flats that are shared between five or six students. All rooms are en suite with junior double beds. Liberty Dock has its own common room, gym and café bar. There’s a mini supermarket, as well as stylish cafés, bars and restaurants around the corner.
Parking is available but additional charges apply and spaces are limited to permit holders only. To apply for a permit please download and complete the application form.

The University has tested samples of Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding where it has been used on our residential buildings and we can advise you that no ACM cladding has been used in the construction of Liberty Dock.
Liberty Dock also has many features that enable the safe evacuation of individuals, including a fire detection and alarm system that exceeds legislative requirements. The automatic L (Life) type alarm system ensures that all areas of your residence are covered by detection, including bedrooms, kitchens, plant rooms, and communal areas. Other fire safety systems installed for your protection include:
- Fire containment between rooms, flats and areas within buildings. Walls, ceilings and door sets are designed to resist and prevent the spread of fire long enough for you to safely escape the building.
- Fire extinguishers and/or firefighting blankets throughout the buildings.
In addition, we operate a system where local staff and fire wardens are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety duties, which include building inspections and routine fire safety checks.

Location, essentials and travel
Chiara Toffolo, BSc Biological Sciences
“I was allocated a room in Liberty Dock. I was anxious at first but now I love it here. It’s really nice being out of the hustle and bustle of the city yet you’re only a 10-minute walk away from the centre of town. Living at this side of Leeds means I’ve had more of a chance to explore the city too. I like being able to walk by the river and the Dock area and see a different side to Leeds.”
