Safe, Convenient Student Accommodation in Burley

From its origins as a mill town during the industrial revolution, Burley has evolved into a modern, but still modest, community that plays host to a large population of students from the nearby University of Leeds and Leeds Metropolitan University.

The town is characterised by brick houses, rolling hills, and narrow streets that, in some places, still sport the original cobblestone paving.

There are numerous well-maintained green spaces, and a lively dining and entertainment area along the River Aire.

Given all it has to offer, finding student accommodation in Burley can be difficult. Unless you contact HOP.

Why is Burley so popular for Students?

  • Its proximity to the city centre makes Burley a really accessible location.

What is Student Housing Like in Burley?

There is more than one type of housing that will appeal to, and be appropriate for, students and Burley provides options for different students with different budgets, tastes and needs. Student properties in Burley include:

  • Private homes to rent – Sharing a private rental home is an extremely popular type of student accommodation, and Burley offers a wide variety of private home rentals. Costs are shared, enabling everyone to enjoy spacious living conditions, a kitchen to cook in, a living room and more. Forming close bonds through shared experiences is an important concept when young people are away from home for the first time in a large city, and a house share is a great way to ease the initial nerves brought about by moving somewhere unfamiliar.
  • Private halls – These are similar to university halls except that they are privately owned and managed. Private halls typically house large numbers of students in individually rented rooms similar to dormitories. Private halls usually occupy prime locations near Leeds City Centre, and while that makes the student’s life more convenient, it also means that private halls can be a relatively expensive option.
  • University-managed housing – Large universities such as the University of Leeds typically own numerous homes and flats about town that they rent to incoming students. These accommodations are typically in high demand and of limited supply. Therefore, securing one is not easy and there are often waiting lists.‍

Consider HOP’s “All-Inclusive” Option

Losing track of things like whether the electric bill was paid is an all-too-common phenomenon for students. This may not seem like a big deal, but late or missed utility payments can come back to haunt them later in life by negatively affecting their credit score. Make sure that doesn’t happen by opting for HOP’s “all-inclusive” rental package. All your housing-related expenses will be bundled together in one convenient monthly payment, allowing you to rest easy at night.
