Castle Leazes is a lively student village, just a short walk from the campus and University Sports Centre. The lifestyle is based around the central hub for meals, the bar and social space, making this a great place to live. You will always meet new friends and stay connected with our on-site WiFi. The buzz of the city centre and shops are a 10 minute walk away.
With over 1,100 students at Castle Leazes, there is a large range of facilities and events to ensure that residents get the best introduction to student life.
The accommodation offers great value for money and provides something for everyone with the flexibility to choose a catered or self-catered option. In addition, Bar CLH serves good-value hot and cold snacks and drinks. The convenience store ensures you can ‘grab and go’ and that you won’t run out of everyday essentials. Vending machines also provide sweets, snacks and drinks 24/7. Sporting events are televised on the large screen TV in the bar and the TV lounges are a great area to catch up with friends at the end of your day and to watch your favorite shows and soaps.

*Standard room - There are a small number of rooms situated within two-bedroom flats in the blocks which are located within the main corridors and provide two single bedrooms which would be offered to students of the same gender and they benefit from having a small kitchen and separate bathroom.
Self-catered Accommodation - there are two room types available:
Washbasin rooms – bedrooms are located on a corridor of 10 to 13 students of the same gender, with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities on each floor. The blocks accommodate students of mixed gender on different floors. Kitchens contain full sized cooker, refrigerator and freezer (with dedicated shelf space for each resident), microwave, kettle and toaster, and each resident has a lockable cupboard. A separate dining room is situated opposite the kitchen. Vacuum cleaners and ironing boards are also provided
En suite rooms - include a private bathroom and are based in shared cluster flats of either seven-, ten or eleven bedrooms. The flats offer a fully equipped communal kitchen, dining area and lounge with comfortable seating and a flat-screen TV, complete with TV licence.
Being self-catered you will have to cook and clean for yourself but you can opt to take occasional meals in EAT@Castle Leazes (a hot main meal is only £3.75) or, better still, buy into the fully catered package and let us do it for you!
