Oxley Residences

Leafy residence with a great community feel

Oxley Residences

Oxley’s impressive accommodation is located in attractive landscaped grounds, less than a mile from the popular student area of Headingley. It’s ideal for sporty students, with a gym on site, close to the University’s outdoor sports facilities and the new Brownlee Centre. Oxley is a very sociable residence, with common areas and a games room.

You don’t have to be a sports enthusiast to enjoy living here. Oxley also has its own music practice room and the peaceful, leafy surroundings are home to a community food growing project, where students grow their own food and learn more about sustainable production. 

Run in partnership with Homes for Students, Oxley has a mix of room types including en suite with junior double beds and larger standard rooms with a double bed.

Oxley has a fully equipped study area complete with computers and comfy seating. There’s also a common room and games room, laundry facilities and cycle storage. Oxley is just 20-minute walk from the shops, restaurants, bars and cinema in Headingley, one of Leeds' popular student suburbs. A frequent bus service running until 3 am links Oxley to and from campus and the city centre.

There is limited parking at the residence for permit holders only. To request a permit, fill out the parking permit application form.

Oxley Residences 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.
  • Firefighting blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).

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.

“Living in Oxley has been really cool. Everyone is so sociable and there’s loads going on, but you can always find a quiet place to study too. I like that it’s away from the city because there’s so much beautiful green space and you have everything you need on site. We have our own bar and gym, as well as a study room and a common room which has a grand piano!”
