The flat is also close to several good bars and restaurants such as Turtle Bay, Gouchos, Slug & student accommodation in Leeds, Nando’s and many more.
Security and Services
The flat has a 24-hour electronic access control system and video surveillance system, so visitors have to pass through multiple electronic gates to gain access. In addition, the flats have their own maintenance team, so any problems with the facilities can be reported directly to the front desk and the flat will be repaired at the first opportunity. In addition, the flats are cleaned every fortnight in the communal areas. The flats carry their own basic property insurance for students and have a 24-hour emergency contact platform to facilitate their daily lives.”
