History of Leeds

Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Leeds can trace its recorded history to fifth century when the Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of "Loidis", the origin of the name Leeds. In the 17th and 18th centuries Leeds became a major centre for the production and trading of wool.

Then, during the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major industrial centre; wool was still the dominant industry but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing and other industries were important. From being a compact market town in the valley of the River Aire in the 16th century Leeds expanded and absorbed the surrounding villages to become a populous urban centre by the mid-20th century.

Room and en-suite were spotless, in fact the whole place was gleaming. Comfortable room with 24 security, safe environment especially for lone females.

Bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Shower was perfect temperature and flow of water. I enjoyed the cookies and tea. Wonderful experience! A close walk to my university child who lives in residence. Very secure building!!

The room was very cold when I arrived and I had to wait for two hours when I arrived on Sunday the 26th of November 2017 at 16:00 for someone to bring a radiator as the person at the reception did not know how to deal with my request.

I really enjoyed my stay in the residence. The facilities and services were great. The only comment I would like to have is that the room did not have any airconditioning and also, the window could not be opened fully, so we had very poor air circulating in the room.

Lovely, lovely, lovely members of staff at Leeds Uni! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. The room was perfect although I think perhaps a tiny bit overpriced from a student's perspective. Thank you again!

The gentlemen on duty on reception when we arrived on the 24th could not have been more friendly and helpful , wonderful after a long journey from Wiltshire.

Outstanding reception. Room of very good 4**** standard. The Porter (Stu. Robinson) welcoming in showing me to my room and explaining the services available.

A great opportunity to get a real campus experience. It was the first time that guests had been accommodated here and there were a few minor issues (no spoon to make tea with etc!) but on the whole a very positive experience. I would recommend that anyone visiting Leeds Uni stays here.

Room was clean and comfortable. Storm Jameson Court is tricky to find the first time, but very convenient for the university and a pleasant 10 minute walk into the centre of Leeds.
