Introduction

Storm Jameson Court, part of Charles Morris Hall, is a contemporary residence, built in 2010 to a very high standard, and rated as 4 star by VisitEngland. The building is at the heart of the main campus, close to the city centre.  The impressive foyer has the  reception desk, a games room with table tennis and pool,  and a large-screen TV. 

The ensuite bedrooms (showers) offer Superior Single beds for single occupancy. However, should you require double occupancy, then please contact us. Another feature is shared use of a TV lounge area. Guests enjoy free broadband Internet access.

The building also offers 20 accessible bedrooms, however please note that Mobility adapted rooms are only available during the summer vacation (in 2017, between 26th June and 8th September).  

Storm Jameson Court also carries the Gold award for Sustainable Green Tourism. 

History to the present day

Storm Jameson Court was opened in 2010, and was built to a very high specification, with students of the future in mind, as well as conference delegates and short break guests.  This high quality residence is named after Margaret Storm Jameson (1891-1986), an alumnus of the University who went on to write more that 45 books.

One of the main criteria was to produce a highly accessible building.  Again, this supports the University's accessible aims to offer university education to everyone equally.  But it also placed in Leeds a unique building, with 20 accessible bedrooms, which would appeal to any individuals or groups, who normally have to make do with unadapted, standard hotel bedrooms.

In the summer of 2012, the United Kingdom was in the grip of Olympic fever. The London Olympics were the most successful yet, and we are very proud that Storm Jameson Court, and the University of Leeds played an important role in this success...

The Canadian Wheelchair Rugby team held three training camps leading up to the Olympics, being based at Storm Jameson Court for all three, going on to win Silver.

For one month ahead of the Games, athletes and officials of the Chinese Olympic delegation were based at Storm Jameson Court, using the campus as a training camp. The 260 athletes went on to win 18 medals, and were profuse in their praise of Storm Jameson Court, our catering and sports facilities.

Food and Drinks

The bedrooms are sold on a room-only basis (equipped with tea and coffee-making facilities), but a wide range of self-serve breakfast fare is available for purchase from the University Refectory, just 100 metres from Storm Jameson Court.

Very convenient for me as I was visiting my daughter at Leeds Uni. Room was basic but had a comfy bed, was quiet, the shower was good. They provide towels and a hairdrier . It was all I really needed and I will stay again.

Mrs Karen H

staff were fantastic and really helpful- although it was difficult to find a way inside the building after a night out, everything else was of high quality and very pleasant
Ms Laura E

Booked two nights for my daughter's graduation. The room had everything we needed and was of a high standard and, despite two of us in the room, the bed was comfy. The 'instruction/welcome' folder was useful and it was good to have all those 'little items' that are invariably missing from other establishments. may thanks
Mr Colin W
