Over past decades, Leeds has consistently remained high on the list of England's best cities to live in. It has been transformed from an industrial and textile industry centre into a culture, business and student hub. Today, Leeds attracts thousands of visitors, professionals and young people looking to explore the city's diverse offerings. So if you have a spare room to let, there are plenty of people out there looking for rooms to rent in Leeds and here at EasyRoommate, we help you to find each other.
Leeds city centre is a pedestrianised paradise - stunning Victorian facades that line the streets have been beautifully restored, and sleek high end apartments are perfect for professionals and those looking to flatshare in style. Museums, galleries and music venues are plentiful, as are fine-dining restaurants and cool little cafes. And should you wish for a cheap room with a canal side view, Leeds has a number of those on offer too. Leeds is home to no fewer than four universities, so it's never short of student room rental options. And with the city being England's largest financial and legal centre after London, there are plenty of facilities aimed at professionals working in the industry. High-end house sharing in Leeds is common, and finding a professional roommate is not going to be a problem. Leeds is well connected to other cities in England and internationally thanks to the busy Leeds Railway station and Leeds Bradford Airport. And whilst the arriving students and younger people might like to stay close to the centre and make the most of city living, professionals who come to Leeds for work will find the north-east of town a quieter place to live in and house share with similar tenants.
If you're a student on a very tight budget and are looking for budget-friendly rooms for rent, head to the south of the city centre. Whilst areas like Beeston, Holbeck and Hunslet might still be awaiting the magic wand of regeneration, houses here are plentiful. So finding a cheap room share in Leeds should be fairly straightforward. If you have a few spare digits rattling around in your bank account however, then rent a room in Headingly or Hyde Park areas for proximity to university and a vibrant, youthful atmosphere. Clarence Dock, situated right in the centre of Leeds, is a very modern riverside development. It offers purpose built flatshare units, as well as traditional apartments where professionals can rent a room within a stone’s throw of the city centre. This mixed development features office space, accommodation, retail and entertainment facilities all in one place, and is very popular with renters.
If a spare room in a luxury apartment is up your street, or you want to rent a room in Leeds in a large swanky house, the northern suburbs such as Roundhay, Shadwell and Meanwood might be perfect for you. Leafy and green, Meanwood is almost like a little village within the city. With a park, golfing facilities and a 5-a-side football pitch, it's well suited to those who don't like to idle indoors after a day in the office or lecture hall. Shadwell, another affluent suburb of Leeds, is located in the north-east of the city. Find a spare room to rent here and you'll be right on the door step of Roundhay Park, where music events with celebrity performers take place regularly. Don't be confused by its name - Hyde Park in Leeds is nothing like its namesake in London, at least not in prices. Those looking for rooms to rent in this area are usually looking for accommodation which is close to Leeds Met and Leeds University. Whatever your ideal flatshare looks like, let EasyRoommate help you find your perfect room for rent in Leeds.
