Area Guides


Headingley is an ideal and popular location for students in Leeds. The home of Rugby League and Cricket (we are in Yorkshire after all), certainly does not disappoint when it comes to being a student.

Living in this area, you can expect trips to the Sainsbury’s superstore, endless charity shop runs and even a cheeky Nandos if you fancy.

With a choice of 10 pubs, you are certainly not stuck when it comes to finding a cheap drink. Our personal favourite is the Original Oak, which has quite possibly the best beer garden in the UK.
