Students live all over Leeds, in some cases choosing to live close to their institution and in other cases choosing the location of the property for its amenities and favourable location rather than its proximity to their place of study. Although recent research has shown that students are moving closer to the city centre, Headingley, Hyde Park and Woodhouse remain the most popular areas and clearly have the largest student populations.
