Area Guides


Kirkstall is a suburb of Leeds located to the North West of the City Centre. Leeds Becket University is located between Kirkstall and Far Headingley, making it a popular choice for Beckett students to find their home.

Trips to the cinema, weekly Morrisons shops, and the ‘occasional’ trip into Headingley for a drink are sure to become regular features of year.

If you fancy staying fit and healthy, you can go for a run around Beckett Park or pop down to Pure Gym for a quick gym session.
