Accommodation for Undergraduates
When you apply for an undergraduate degree at Leicester, you are guaranteed a room in University allocated accommodation, provided that you:
- Firmly accept the offer of a place at Leicester, and
- Apply for accommodation by 1 September (in the year in which you start your course)
Students can choose from catered halls of residence or self-catered accommodation, with a range of rooms from standard single rooms to en suite and deluxe. The range of accommodation available is reflected in the Key Information Set (KIS) data on the Unistats website - find out how KIS accommodation data is calculated. The University’s Accommodation Services provide information and facilities for all students seeking University owned accommodation, whether catered or self-catered.
Accommodation booking is managed through an online system. You can express a preference for a particular hall; however this cannot be guaranteed.
Accommodation for Postgraduates
Postgraduate students can choose between self-catered accommodation in University halls or privately rented accommodation. The Students’ Union at Leicester provides support for students seeking privately rented accommodation through SULETS, a lettings agency jointly owned and run by the Students’ Unions of De Montfort University and the University of Leicester.
