James Baillie Park
A great location and beautiful surroundings
Run in partnership with UNITE, the attractive apartment blocks of James Baillie Park are halfway between the University campus and the popular student suburb of Headingley. There’s a nature reserve just behind the residence, with woodland walks down to the city centre, giving you the best of all worlds.
Most rooms are en suite and some have a double bed. En suite rooms are grouped into flats of four, five or six and share a kitchen and lounge area. There are also standard rooms, where three students share a bathroom and kitchen, and some single en suite studios. The common room has digital TV, a pool table and games machine. There are laundry and cycle storage facilities.
Close to North Hill Court and Devonshire Hall, James Baillie Park is only a 20-minute walk away from the University, or there is a frequent bus service running until 3am to and from campus and the city centre. There is limited parking at the residence for permit holders only. To request a permit, contact the Residence office.

Efficient, responsive building maintenance
Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of James Baillie Park.
James Baillie Park 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 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.

“Out of the residences I visited, James Baillie was definitely my favourite. It has a real homely feel; the layout of the flats mean that everyone’s close together and we all get on so well. It’s just the right distance away from campus to give you some space from University and your workload, but without making the morning commute too much of a mission!”
