* If you bring your own TV or watch using a personal electronic device, you will need to purchase your own licence.
Leazes Terrace is self-catered accommodation for postgraduates offering a variety of room types (including single, with a 3-foot bed, a deluxe with a 4-foot bed and double with a 4'6-foot bed). To ensure you are comfortable from day one, we will give you a free bedding pack.
In single and double rooms you'll share the kitchen and dining areas with other students. If you choose a double studio, you and your partner will have your own private kitchen.
We don't allocate bedrooms based on gender requirements; if you choose a washbasin room, it's likely you will share a bathroom with a mix of male and female students. Most communal areas (kitchens and bathrooms) are shared with a mix of students.
Leazes Terrace has a large number of stairs and shared kitchens are located across different floors so your kitchen might be on a different floor to your bedroom. This could prove difficult if you have mobility problems.
