Your accommodation options.

Many first year undergraduate students, including international students, take a room in Joseph Stones House, a nine-storey complex purpose-built for Leeds College of Music adjoining the Conservatoire.

If you do not get a room in Joseph Stones House, there are several alternatives.


If you are attending a full-time FE or HE course at Leeds College of Music and are aged 18 or over, you may apply to live in Joseph Stones House, which is owned and managed by UNITE, a specialist student accommodation provider.
Situated directly above the main Conservatoire building and boasting award-winning architecture and sweeping views of the city, Joseph Stones House comprises 190 study bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, clustered in flats with shared kitchen and living spaces.

Applications for September 2015 will not be accepted before Spring 2015 - please keep checking the website for further updates. To live in Joseph Stones House you must be 18 before the date on which you enrol at the conservatoire.

Joseph Stones House is undergoing refurbishment in summer 2014 with designer Wayne Hemingway. Take a look at this video for a sneak peak:


If you do not get a room in Joseph Stones House or want to live elsewhere, there are several  privately run halls of residence to which you can apply – or you can choose to live in a shared house.
UNITE, which owns and manages Joseph Stones House, also owns two other buildings in the city, The Plaza and Sky Plaza.
Alternatively you can apply for somewhere to live through UNIPOL, a reputable, charitable trust that helps students find a place to live. UNIPOL offers halls of residence, flats, houses and rooms through private landlords who have signed up to the UNIPOL code of conduct.

Due to the specialist nature of the Conservatoire, some students come to Leeds College of Music from other parts of the country and abroad while still under 18.

Students under 18 have a limited choice of where to live, due to current British legislation. However, UNIPOL are now able to accommodate students under 18, and students under 18 may also apply to live in privately run halls Liberty Park and Carr Mills (Cotton Mills).
