Shay Street and Holborn Terrace is a development which has been converted especially for Leeds University students with dependants. There are 55 three-bedroom maisonette-style flats. Each flat is over two floors (ground and first floor or second and third floor with access from a covered walkway).

There are five buildings, each comprising 12 flats (there are five flats which we do not manage). There are grassed and planted garden areas and a perimeter fence to the flats.

Access to the site is through gates with door entry intercoms and a code entry system. All ground-floor flats have a burglar alarm.

The development is managed by Unipol Student Homes and the flats are allocated by the University of Leeds Accommodation Office. 


The flats have been renovated to a high standard, including the fitting of energy-efficient gas-fired central heating systems, well designed kitchens and modern bathrooms with showers. Each flat has three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, bathroom and separate WC. Ground-floor flats have their own small fenced garden.

TV and phone

Telephone sockets (subject to reconnection to the network at tenants' expense) are fitted and television aerial sockets are provided in the lounge. There is cable television to the building but tenants are not permitted to fit satellite dishes.


There is a small amount of car parking at the development. Spaces are not reservable. Eight garages are available to rent (at an extra cost).
