Joseph Stones House

A nine-storey accommodation complex situated on campus.

Joseph Stones House is situated directly above the conservatoire's St Peter's Square building and offers private bathrooms to all rooms. 

It comprises of 190 study bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, clustered in flats with shared kitchen and living spaces. There are a small number of studios for students who’d prefer to live alone. 

It is managed by Unite Students.

During the 2023-24 academic year, works will be carried out to the external facade of this property between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday. There will be some low noise disruption during working hours, and scaffolding on site. Unite Students will communicate notice of these works to all residents ahead of them starting. This is in addition to the ongoing construction opposite Joseph Stones House which may impact some residents.

Information for Applicants

Applicants joining us in September 2024, who have firmly accepted their offer of study, can apply for accommodation from 13 May 2024 onwards. Applicants will be emailed a link to an online accommodation form. This includes applicants who deferred their place from the previous year.  

We can prioritise the following applicants who have an offer of study, providing you contact the Accommodation Team before 3 May 2024 to discuss your requirements: 

  • applicants who are care experienced or estranged from their families 
  • applicants with a diagnosed disability, long-term physical or mental health condition or allergy which needs to be considered for your accommodation 

The accommodation team can be contacted by email at accommodation@leedsconservatoire.ac.uk 

How to apply for accommodation

From 13 May 2024: 

Complete the online application form, which will be emailed directly to applicants who have firmly accepted their offer of study. Use the same form to apply for both Joseph Stones House and One Mill Street.  

You can select up to three choices of room type. The majority of rooms we have are ‘classic en-suites’ at Joseph Stones House and ‘standard rooms’ at One Mill Street. Please include at least one of these in your choices.  

Please allow approximately 6 weeks for your application to be processed. We will contact you sooner if we have any queries about your accommodation form.  

What if my application is unsuccessful?

If you apply for a room and Joseph Stones House is full, we will keep a small waiting list in case of vacancies at the last minute.

Usually there are no more than a few withdrawals, so most people will be better booking other places if they haven’t got a room. We have a list of alternative accommodation you can look into.

Please get in touch if you need advice on which accommodation would suit you best.

When can I move in?

Your accommodation contract will have a start date. You will be able to move in at any time from that date onwards.

How to cancel accommodation

Contact the accommodation team as soon as you can, and before the end of August – accommodation@leedsconservatoire.ac.uk 

Please note:
Should you choose not to come to Leeds Conservatoire and the reason is neither a serious personal issue nor failure to get your grades, then you may be tied in to paying your tenancy for the full year if your room cannot be reallocated. 

Should serious personal reasons prevent you from taking up your place please contact us for advice. 

Please read carefully the terms of the Unite Students Cancellation Policy which you can access alongside your tenancy documents.
