In the heart of the UK, Leeds is a bustling city known for its rich history, cultural diversity, and vibrant student community. Student accommodation demand is at an all-time high in Leeds because of the city's large student population, which exceeds 120,000 bold, brave, and adventurous students.
The right accommodation can help students focus on their studies and give them the base of operation they need to succeed. A comfortable living environment can contribute to a student’s physical and mental well-being, allowing them to excel academically.
We are proud owners of all our student properties, so we can personally ensure our homes are well-maintained and comfortable. The last thing a student needs is the added stress of juggling different utility providers and repairmen - Our in-house maintenance team is always on hand and committed to delivering personal excellence.
By delivering great service, we deliver the results our customers need.
Because of their convenient location and marketing as designed specifically for students, university student halls often come at a pretty hefty premium. Still, students can benefit from the same convenient locations and amenities at a fraction of the price when choosing to rent privately with us. Here are a few benefits we think are important to consider:
The location of the student accommodation is a crucial factor to consider, as it will impact daily life and the overall experience of living in Leeds. When deciding whether to be close to a university or college or in a more central part of the city. Be aware of the area's local amenities and transport links, as these can greatly impact a student's overall quality of life. You can find out more about the many different parts of Leeds in our area guides.
Follow these six easy steps to begin your student living.
Although this might seem straightforward, our residential lettings team will ensure everything runs smoothly and that you are kept informed throughout.
Finding suitable accommodation is a crucial aspect of a student’s educational experience. The right living situation can give students the support and comfort they need to succeed academically and personally. Whether choosing university-owned housing or off-campus private living, it is essential that you do your research and make informed decisions to ensure that a student home away from home meets their needs and expectations.
Using data found online, prices range from £105-£222+ per week for a small single room in student hall living, and that’s whilst sharing a bathroom with up to 4 people and a kitchen with up to 7.
Our private accommodation typically ranges between £65-£184 per person per week.
Best is always subjective to what’s important to you; luckily, we’ve got quite a few area guides for Leeds that can help you make that decision yourself.
It’s as simple as using our search feature; sorting by price, you will find plenty of beautiful accommodations at a very reasonable price point.
In short - you should be aware of the surrounding area, signs that the property is up to scratch, and everything is up to legal specification.

Providing that all forms have been filled in and fees have been paid, you will be handed keys to move into the property on the day the tenancy begins from 12 noon. On the day of the new tenancy it will be very busy so it may take time for you to receive your keys. If you have paid for the inventory video service we will follow you to the property at the allocated time to record the condition of the property.
In order to do this, you’ll have to contact the utility provider. Then you will need to reference your meter reading and serial numbers, followed by it being registered in your name. We also need a copy of this information. A full guide on how to set up your utilities will be provided in the Spencer Properties’ Handbook.
It is against fire regulations to fit locks to bedroom doors. We do not permit any locks to be fitted on internal doors, for any damaged cause the tenant will be held liable. Also they may also be held responsible if there is any removal fees of the locks. We or the fire department need to be able to access all rooms In case of a fire.
As the deposit and rent are separate, this will not be possible. The rent will need to be paid. The deposits are held in a separate account and will be refunded from that account at the end of the tenancy.
It's important that the keys are returned on the last day of the tenancy by 12noon. Failure to do so will result in charges for items such as locks being changed and having to situate new tenants in alternative accommodation. For these reasons it’s essential that you bring the keys back on time.
