An 1850’s Hall of Residence offering conference facilities year-round and standard accommodation.

Venue info

Situated at the heart of the university campus and dating back to 1886, Lyddon Hall is one of the oldest Halls of Residence within the University.

Although it has undergone a modern refurbishment, many original features have been retained including the oak parquet flooring in the main entrance and an open staircase leading to the upper floors.

    Arranged in single study bedrooms, central campus accommodation with shared bathroom facilities.

    Located right in the heart of campus, just 10 minutes from Leeds city centre.


Bedrooms are only available during vacation periods.

Lyddon Hall has 70 beds arranged in single study bedrooms, where each room has its own wash basin, but toilet and shower facilities are shared.
