The Leeds students living in the lap of hotel luxury

Have your say

A 24 hour concierge on hand to sign for your online food shop, a free popcorn supply in the cinema room, a cocktail evening arranged for you and guests and a taster session with a local restaurant.

It sounds like a night away or a weekend retreat but this is actually the latest trend in student living in Leeds.



In a far cry from what is a stereotypical hovel in a shared house with pizza boxes for furniture - Collegiate AC are taking it to another level in making the city’s students feel at home.

At the Pennine House site at Russell Street, provider of luxury student accommodation Collegiate AC, has launched its 24/7 on-site concierge team and raised the bar in student living.

Heriberto Cuanalo, CEO, Collegiate AC: said: “The launch of our 24-hour on-site concierge service will ensure that Collegiate residences feel safe, secure and as homely as possible for those living away from their families.

“With staff on call when students need them most, the Collegiate 24/7 concierges set us apart from our competitors. When locked out or simply in need of a chat, the team are here to help and are chosen for their kind and thorough nature making Collegiate the place to call home.”

There are nine different accommodation options available, starting with a two bed apartment for £167 a week over a 51 week tenancy.

For that you will get a double bed, workspace, en-suite bathroom and access to a shared kitchen.

Or for a student loan sapping £13,515 a year (£265 a week) students can rent an Ultra Studio Plus.

That includes a double bed, private kitchen and bathroom, extra workspace, seating and living area.

The rates are for a tenancy agreement that starts in September this year.
