When you think of student accommodation in Leeds you often picture shared bathrooms with no toilet roll, empty bottles lined up along the windowsill and broken sofas (along with several other random items of furniture) left out next to the over-flowing bins, in that overgrown area you could questionably call a garden. Now, if you want to experience this typical English student culture, go right ahead. But we definitely DO NOT recommend it.
Why settle for less when you can have more? Just because you’re a student it doesn’t mean you have to live like one. In fact, our new student accommodation is quite the opposite of that nightmare we just described above. If you’re looking for something a little more Hilton and a lot less Travel Lodge, then read on, because Oasis Residence is in a whole new league of its own.
Designed to be one of the more expensive student properties to rent in Leeds, no expense has been spared. With a sleek design, a minimalistic edge and detailed finishing touches, Oasis Residence is definitely the place to live if you want to impress your friends and family. The apartments themselves resemble that of a 5-star hotel (minus the complimentary slippers), with everything from King-size beds to 360-degree rotational TVs and large rainfall shower heads. You wouldn’t see that in Hyde Park now, would you?
As well as looking the part, Oasis also offers convenience, because let’s face it, although we might not like to admit it, the human race is naturally lazy. Very lazy. You only have to think about how many times you’ve not gone to the gym because it was raining, or how many times you’ve cancelled on that all-nighter in the library because you didn’t want to walk alone in the dark. To be honest these are pretty legitimate reasons, so we’d forgive you, but people will make an excuse from almost anything. “I have to bath my Grandma’s cat tonight” or “I’ve promised that I’d meet up with my 3rd cousin’s, best friend’s, sister-in-law” just aren’t good enough, and if you’re the kind of person to make such lame excuses, you’ve just jumped right to the top of our list entitled ‘people in need of an Oasis Residence lifestyle’. And it’s long.
With a fully-equipped gym on-site you will might have a six-pack in no time, and with a communal lounge kitted out with TVs, gaming chairs and comfy beanbags, you’ve got your own little hub to relax and make friends. As if that isn’t cool enough, residents will also be able to use the cinema room and private study spaces. That’s right, no more walking round the library seven times until you find a spare seat, only to be sat next to the worlds loudest chewer, eating tuna and egg, shaking his leg and listening to that song you hate on repeat. Oh, and they’re probably using the only plug socket.
With a grand entrance and lobby area, the minute you walk into Oasis Residence you will feel like you’re checking in on holiday. Better yet, the on-site concierge will be there to help with any queries and deliver any parcels you may receive. They even promise not to judge you on how many Missguided deliveries you get every week (because there is no such thing as too many). With a coded fob entry, on-site security and a lettings office also within the development, you can be sure that the high-level of service will match that of the interior.
The pièce de résistance if you will (don’t worry I can’t pronounce it either), is its location. Smack bang in the middle of Leeds it’s hard to think of a more perfect setting. Placed immediately next to Leeds Beckett University (honestly, you couldn’t be any closer if you tried) and only a 10-minute walk to The University of Leeds, Oasis Residence is ideal for anyone wanting to roll out of bed 10 minutes before their lecture starts. Let’s face it, you’re going to do this anyway so why not do it out of your king-sized bed? With a large Morrisons over the road and a Tesco Express just around the corner you’ve got food shopping down to a T, and with Trinity Shopping centre, The Victoria Quarter and The Light all just a stone’s throw away, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to weekend activities - not that you’ll need to leave Oasis very often that is.
Right on your doorstep you also have Millennium Square, which means only one thing. For roughly 5 weeks at the end of the year when the Christmas markets arrive you’ll have German sausages, crêpes, roasted nuts, pizza and hot chocolate all within a 30 second walk. Bonus! Oasis Residence also neighbours the 02 Academy so keep a look out of your window and you might even catch Harry Styles jumping into his tour bus eating said crêpes, although we’re not making any promises on this one.
To summarise, Oasis Residence is awesome. A much-needed addition to the city, it is set to alter the student property rental market in Leeds for the better. High-end, all-inclusive student accommodation is no longer an untapped market and boy is this an exciting time to be part of it.
