Now you can get the community spirit of halls with all the luxury of having your own apartment…
With over 60,000 students living in Leeds, it’s no wonder there’s a growing need for student accommodation, but while there may be an abundance of new developments on the way, it’s fair to say that they’re not all made equal. In fact, you might be surprised to discover just how luxurious student living can be, especially when you see Oasis Residence.
It’s a new apartment complex just minutes from the city’s universities on Cookridge Street. When it completes in September 2018, it’ll have 96 fully-furnished luxury studio flats that range from 27.5 square metre first-floor apartments to 34.8 square metre penthouses with their own private balcony. Prices start from £999 per month and that includes free high-speed wifi, as well as your water and electricity bills – so you’ll know exactly what you have to pay each month.
Each flat comes kitted out with the latest mod cons. You’ll have your own kitchen, complete with an oven, washer-dryer, microwave and fridge-freezer, so there’s no need to go out to do your laundry and you’ll never come home to find someone’s stolen all your food.
But that’s just the beginning. This is student living at its best – we’re talking rainfall showers, HD TVs, oodles of hidden storage and a stylish decor that uses interesting design details like ceiling coffers, wood panelling and marbled flooring to create a sense of modern chic. Floor to ceiling windows give it a bright, airy feel, making it a place you’ll want to be, whether you’re trying out a new recipe or getting your head down on your next assignment.
Oasis Residence is a million miles from the stereotypical ‘halls’ but it does have one thing in common with them – it’s been designed to help you meet new people and make new friends. In fact, they’ve gone to great lengths to create a lively student community in the heart of the city. How? By building a series of shared communal spaces into the design.
In fact, they’ve dedicated an entire floor to it. Here, you’ll find a spacious lounge where you can kick back and relax – eat dinner with friends, laze around on the sofas or watch the footy together on their huge wall-mounted TVs, it’s yours to do what you want with. You can even while away the hours on their state-of-the-art gaming stations – it’s like having your own private arcade in the basement.
Just next door is the cinema. It’s like a mini Everyman – think cosy sofas, a big projector screen and enough space to get the whole gang together. Or you can head to the gym. At over 80 square metres, it’s got plenty of space and all the equipment you could need. If it’s cardio you’re after, they have treadmills, cross trainers and an upright cycle, but it’s just as good for strength workouts, with a mix of free weights, multi-press and leg extension machines.
Just like halls, they organise events to help you get to know your neighbours, and because everyone is a student here – you’ve already got something in common. Freshers’ Week brings a big welcome party to help you settle in, but they keep the momentum going with movie nights, pizza evenings and even group PT sessions.
Got work to do? They’ve got a big communal study lounge where you can work on essays, projects and dissertations. You can get your heads together on the beanbags, perch at the breakfast bar for a quick cramming session or spread out on the big study table. Alternatively, grab one of their two private study rooms – they have space for 6 to 8 people, so it’s perfect for group work and study sessions with your course buddies.
Oasis Residence will take student living to the next level. It gives you the best of both worlds – a luxury apartment in the heart of a thriving student community and that’s going to be very popular indeed.
