Moving in to Carlton Hill

Leeds Becketts & Leeds Arts University allocated arrivals

You can collect the keys for your accommodation on, or after, the date your tenancy starts.

Keys are issued during the following times: 

Leeds Beckett University (Degree students) from the on-site office at Carlton Hill  - Saturday 21st September 2019 and Sunday 22nd September between 11.00am – 4.00pm

From Monday 23rd September you can collect your keys from the Unipol office at 155/157 Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, LS2 3ED.

There is no parking outside the Unipol office, so you may find it useful to go directly to Carlton Hill to park, and then take the short walk across to Unipol to collect your key.

The Unipol office will be open during the following times:

Monday to Friday 9.00am - 4.45pm

For arranging arrivals out of these hours, contact Sarah Organ 

Please bring a form of identification with you when you come to collect your key


What to bring to University

Check out the Unipol website for more information about what facilities are supplied in your accommodation and what you need to bring with you. 

Please allow yourself extra time to travel to Leeds.

The sheer volume of traffic in Leeds is enormous on the weekend before term commences, as several thousand students will be arriving in Leeds from all over the country. It is not unusual to take two or three hours more than your expected journey time to reach the city. It is likely to be busy when you arrive at Carlton Hill - we will do all we can to assist you, and your patience is appreciated.

Using a SatNav? 

Our experience has shown that the Carlton Hill property postcode does not relay well into most SatNav systems. If you use a SatNav, please try entering LS7 1JA which should direct you to Lofthouse Terrace, the road running by the side of the Carlton Hill site.


Parking on site is limited and we want to make sure everyone can move in easily. Once you have unloaded your car, the driver will be required to move the vehicle to a nearby car park. The postcode of the nearest carpark (Woodhouse Lane) is LS2 3AX and directions are below.

Woodhouse Lane Car Park


You can see the carpark from the site and it is only a 2 minute walk back to Carlton Hill once you are parked in the multi storey. The price of parking is also very reasonable. To return to Carlton Hill once you have parked, exit the car park and head up the slope (right), away from town. Cross over the slip road with a pedestrian crossing, and you will see a green gate labelled Carlton Hill pedestrian entrance. 

 Walking in to City Centre from Carlton Hill

The city centre shopping area is very close to Carlton Hill and only takes 2 minutes down the pathway at the side of the building Spens House to the city centre. This is also the way to walk to Leeds Beckett City campus and Leeds Arts University

 To get to town, keep the Woodhouse Lane multi storey car park on your left and walk down Woodhouse Lane in to the city centre passed Morrison Supermarket
