Sentinel Towers

Modern accommodation in the west of the city

Sentinel Towers

Sentinel Towers offers en suite accommodation just a short walk from the city centre’s shops and bars. Just to the west of campus, it is ideally located for medical, dental, and business students.

It’s also close to the shops, bars restaurants and leisure complex in Burley Park. Find out more about living in the Burley Area.

Sentinel Towers is one of our quieter student residences but still has a sociable atmosphere. You’ll share kitchen facilities with four to eight others. All rooms are en suite, some with double beds. There are communal areas for socialising, both indoor and out, which include a common room with a TV, pool table and table tennis. You also have access to on site laundry and cycle storage facilities. There’s an on-site shop for essentials close by next to The Tannery residences across the road.

A bus service runs from right outside the residence, to and from campus. You’ve got easy access to the motorway network and Leeds railway station too. Parking is available but additional charges apply and spaces are limited to permit holders only. To request a permit, fill out the parking permit application form.

“Sentinel Towers is in a great location – it’s about a 15-minute walk to the University campus and as it’s situated at the end of The Headrow, which is one of the main streets in Leeds, I can walk into the town within ten minutes too. I am very happy here and really enjoy living in halls. I have great flatmates and my room is spacious with an en suite and double bed.”

Because of the comprehensive fire safety features that have been incorporated in the design of your accommodation at the Sentinel Towers, we are assured by the Fire and Rescue Service that Sentinel Towers is safe a safe building.

Sentinel Towers 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.
  • A dry riser system to be used by the fire brigade in a situation where they want to use their fire hoses on any level of your building.
  • A firefighting lift/elevator for use by fire fighters to assist them to get quick access to all building floors to put out a fire and help residents leave the building.  
  • Fire extinguishers and/or firefighting blankets throughout the building.

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.
