student accommodation in headingley

A University town

Headingley is well known as a University town, and no wonder. Between the University of Leeds to the southeast and Leeds Beckett University (Headingley Campus) to the northwest 60,000+ students descend on the area every year. A large percentage of those students seek off-campus housing. This can lead to a good deal of confusion and missed opportunities for those who try and navigate the local housing market on their own. A better idea is to put the professionals at HOP to work for you. We maintain, and are constantly updating, an extensive list of student accommodation options and can fix you up with the ideal flat, house or rental room in no time.

Transport in Headingley

One of the many great things about Headingley is that it’s so easy for students to get around. The Metro bus service crisscrosses the Leeds area, including Headingley. Most buses appear every 10 minutes and can quickly shuttle you to your classes in the city centre.

In addition, there are 2 train stations – Headingley and Burley Park, both that provide regular services to Leeds. Alternatively, if you have a car with you, Otley Road will take you right into Leeds in just minutes.

Helping you find the perfect student accommodation in Headingley

Headingley is situated between two of the largest universities in the north. It has a laid-back, easy-going way about it that belies the lively banter you’ll hear in the local Indian and Mediterranean restaurants. Much of the housing stock was developed with student residents in mind, but there is such a diverse selection available finding just the right one can be difficult. People who go it alone often wind up paying too much for accommodation. Or they end up in a place that is not a good match, simply because they ran out of energy to continue searching. Instead of pulling your hair out trying to find the perfect student accommodation in Headingley on your own, trust the professionals at HOP to place you quickly and comfortably.

If you are a parent searching for safe, convenient student properties for your child’s first year at University, HOP are the ones to call. We understand the stress parents go through when their child is about to live away from home for the first time. We are committed to making sure they are placed in safe student housing that best suits their needs, so they can concentrate on academia, and you can sleep easy at night.

The HOP 9-Step Process

Our 9-step process has been developed through long experience and has an admirable record of matching the right student to the right property. You start by browsing through our extensive listings, then call to make a viewing appointment. While we have your attention we alert you to other listings that we feel meet your needs and tastes. Once you’ve found your ideal accommodation and reserved the property, you’ll simply need to complete your application, have the guarantor sign on, pay the first month’s rent and you’re in!

Moving In

Once you have signed on for student accommodation in Headingley, the next step is moving in. The following are a few things to keep in mind to facilitate the process:

Each designated tenant in the house share will have their own set of keys. If there is more than one person moving in you will need to nominate a tenant to collect the keys from the HOP office.

You will be provided with a photographic inventory of the property and its contents. You will have 14 days to respond if you think anything does not match the photographic record.

Make sure you test all your appliances to ensure they are in good working order when you move in. If there are any issues you must raise them within 14 days to avoid being held liable for any damage.

You will be allowed to rearrange furniture to suit your needs but furniture cannot be removed from the property or stored outside the flat or house without special permission.

Respecting Your New Neighbours

Respecting Your New Neighbours

We understand that living away from home is a new and exciting experience for many. Nonetheless, those moving into student accommodation in Headingley must be mindful of and respect the right of their neighbours to live in peace.

We ask that you keep the volume of music down, particularly after 11 pm. If you have headphones make use of them late at night.

Entertaining is fine, but try to confine it to Friday and Saturday nights when it is less likely your neighbours have to get up early the next morning.

Also, remember that you will be responsible for any damages caused to the property by rowdy guests.


Though they are rare, unforeseen emergencies are always a possibility. If you suspect a break-in at your student accommodation in Headingley you must ring the police and file a report. Similarly, if you smell gas, it’s imperative that you ring National Grid immediately on 0800 111 999.

For less pressing emergencies the HOP team will have someone out to the property as soon as possible. Please refer to our Tenant Handbook for further details.
