About student living in Burley


Less than a mile from the city centre and well connected, Burley Road student accommodation provides the perfect base to enjoy all Leeds has to offer. Its red brick houses are home to students and families alike and well served by local buses and trains. Burley Park railway station is the first stop north west of Leeds on the Harrogate line, with subsequent stops at nearby Headingley and Horsforth, which is particularly convenient for those studying at Leeds Trinity’s campus there. Many bus routes run via Burley Road and Kirkstall Road, most taking less than 10 minutes to get to Leeds city centre.


Look no further than Burley Park to escape the hustle and bustle of Leeds city centre. Student accommodation in Burley is on the doorstep of this Victoria era park, which, beyond offering lovely walks and places to relax in the community gardens and orchards, also has a cricket pitch, tennis and basketball courts, outdoor gym and mini football pitch. There really is no excuse for not dusting off your sports shoes and breaking a sweat.

Food and Drink

Whilst generally considered quieter than nearby Headingley and Hyde Park, student accommodation in Burley benefits from a range of local bars and eateries to rival the competition. The Cardigan Arms pub is a pillar of the local community and offers up quality pub grub including roasts on a Sunday! Lupe’s Cantina Mexicana is a popular choice for students who lap up this venue’s artsy vibe, Mexican classic dishes and delicious cocktails. If it’s a hot brew you’re after, student houses in Burley are never more than a short stroll from a quality coffee and pastry. Left Bank Leeds on Cardigan Road and Fix Coffee on Burley Road are just two examples.


If a local night out is on the cards, Brudenell Social Club in nearby Hyde Park is a popular and affordable spot. Burley Park’s array of sports facilities can keep you and your friends occupied for hours with tennis, cricket and football all on offer. If watching sport is more your thing, Yorkshire Cricket Ground and Headingley Stadium are great options for an evening or weekend spot of professional cricket or rugby. Burley Road student accommodation is also just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Leeds city centre.


For a serious shopping trip you’re going to want to go that little bit further to Trinity Leeds or the Corn Exchange. For everything else small, Burley should have it. Scattered amongst the student accommodation Burley has on offer, there are a range of convenience stores that will bail you out when you return home to an empty fridge and rumbling stomach or stocking up for an impromptu social gathering. One Stop on Burley Road is a good option. There are two Londis shops to the east and south east of Burley Park, otherwise Co-op by Burley Park railway station is your best option to the north.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

It is normal for property managers to require you to pay a security deposit at the time of booking or before you move in. Where a deposit is required and you are signing a tenancy agreement, your property manager must protect your deposit in a legally recognised tenancy deposit scheme. As long as you look after the property and have no deductions for damage or unpaid rent, your deposit will be returned to you after your tenancy agreement ends. Tenancy deposits are legally capped at five weeks’ rent per person, so if your own portion of the rent is £100 per week, the maximum deposit would be £500. It is more common however for student deposits to be in the £100-250 range.

How long does a tenancy agreement last for?

The majority of student accommodation in Burley Road can be rented for fixed contract lengths. For purpose built student accommodation, 43 and 51 week fixed term contracts are the most common. For shared houses, 52 week contracts are the most common and generally start in July to September.

Do you offer student accommodation for short-term stays?

Short-term student rentals in Burley are becoming more popular every year. As a result, property managers are increasingly offering shorter tenancy lengths, whether for the summer period or for individual semesters and terms. This is more common in the purpose built student accommodation sector than in shared student rental houses across Leeds.
