12:01PM - PG accommodation in LU

I entered MA in Communications Studies this year. Leeds university has very detailed accommodation guide but that would be great to hear somebody who already live/lived there.

 

Here is a list of types of PG student accommodation:

Leodis Residences, Montague Burton, Sentinel Towers, Smaller Residences, St Mark's Residences, Grayson Heights

 

In accommodation form I picked Leodis as most preferred then Montague Burton and then Sentinel Towers. How are these residences? That would be great to know your thoughts!


Thanks in advance!

4:25PM - Wednesday: Wicked Words!

Any fans of poetry/spoken word here? Writers too?

If so, come on out to the next edition of Leeds' premier performance-poetry night:
WICKED WORDS

...a lively event of words and occasional music held every month, with a large and loyal following, including a guest performer and an open mic. If you've got a piece of writing to share, bring it along and be part of the show. Hosted by Brendan McPartlan.

This month's featured artist is Jeff Cottrill, all the way from Toronto, Canada.
Jeff is a satirical writer and spoken-word performer whose irreverent humour often makes audiences laugh, cringe or both. More info at his web page.

Entry: £3/£2

10:02PM - Security

I'm an exchange student due to start in January at Leeds... I'll be staying in uni accomodation - so far picked Clarence Dock but haven't had my choice confirmed yet - and I heard it's pretty far from uni. I've also seen posts about how you shouldn't walk alone in the streets.

I'm wondering... I'm from Montreal, so I tend to assume it's okay to walk home by yourself at 1 A.M. and not be afraid at all (I'm a 5'2" girl). I have the feeling it won't be okay in Leeds, so I'm aware of that, but I was wondering if this applies only at night? At what time do you say it's too late/not recommended to walk around by yourself?

Thanks in advance from preventing a clueless Canadian from getting mugged!

Hi, I'm considering applying to study here next semester (I'm American.) Can any of you tell me anything about the theater program at the Bretton Hall Campus? Whether it's good, if it's competitive or anything?

Just to warn everyone else, LEEDS IS NOT AS SAFE AS WE THINK

Last week a friend at around 8 PM was hit on the face and threatened to be stabbed if he didn't give out his wallet by a group of teenagers. This happened on brudenell road.

Yesterday, a female friend was followed on her way towards Headingley, when she realised she was being followed she started running and calling her brother in a moment of panic, the boys ran after her and stopped her. they had a knife pointed at her. they took her pursue and asked her to go away. this happened near Woodhouse Lane.

PLEASE BECAREFUL AROUND LEEDS and HIDE YOUR GOODS!

Sunday, September 10, 2006

6:14PM - Welcome

Hello, to those of you new to Leeds you will have an amazing time. To those returning. Hey Headingley has missed you. It has been far too quiet without you all.

Have a good year, and if anybody new wants an insight to Leeds, gigs at the Cockpit or even want to buy me a pint in my local let me know

Saturday September 9th! Starts at 3pm! @the Fenton, Woodhouse Lane

ERRANDER – formerly known as P>S>P, tech metal attack, on IATDE records
LUCIEN (Sweden) – punk cock rock n roll from Sweden ala Hellacopters/Gluecifer
HUMANFLY – a yorkshire thunderstorm of riffs. mega.
THE MERCURY LEAGUE – faster than a crackhead on giro day - hc punk from Sunderland. Witness the fitness.
THE DAUNTLESS ELITE – melodic sing along punk rock, in that No Idea vein, but without sounding like every band on No Idea which, let’s face it, a lot of bands do.
DEATH HAND APPROACHING – instrumental metal, sound like The Fucking Champs apparently. But I saw TFC’s last year, and I wasn’t impressed, but I did have a good pool session while they played.
JUPITER LANDER – spazzy emo. Anyone seen crying will be ejected from the venue and beaten down on the fire escape. Ex We Are Corpses/Yossarian is Drowning/4 Planes in 4 Days/Broken Access
UNICORN LOVE – have pulled out..because one of them has to go to Church. Seriously. It’s for a wedding like.
xOLIVERREEDx – drunken grind (the best sort)
IT’S BROKEN – kid dynamite six toes from Ponte
KAYAKO SAEKI – like early Therapy? ? 2nd gig

The running order will fluctuate wildly. Much like John Travolta’s acting career. Broken Arrow though, wicked film. So get there at the start.

8:58PM - Residence Help

Hi,

I'm a student from Canada possibly going on exchange to Leeds this September. I was wondering if any of you can help with some information about a few residences? North Hill Court, James Baillie Park and Lupton in particular.

How are the residences? I heard how North Hill was supposedly being refurbished? How does it look now?

Also, how is the sense of community at those residences?

If anyone lived who lived there in prior years could leave some input or tips, that'll be great!

Thanks in advance!

2:19AM - Meep, I think I need some advice...

Hey all.

Both me and the boyfriend are going to be moving to Leeds this coming September (grades permitting), and we need a little advice. I've applied to Leeds university, and he's applied to Leeds Met. That wouldn't be a problem, except we want to live together; that's an absoloute 'must' for us.

I'd imagine that for the majority of first year students it's expected that most go in to halls, but that's just not going to be good for us at all; because then we'd have to live apart. We've been together for 3 years now, in a (very) long distance relationship (he'll be an exchange student, coming from Sweden), so being apart longer than we need to be isn't something we want to do.

Is there a system at the university where prospective first-year students can find accomodation that isn't university-halls? Shared houses, flats, anything. Just anywhere where we could live together relatively cheaply. Pweeeese help; we're in a dilly of a pickle.

Thanks so much in advance, love Erica (and Rikard). xXx
