Choosing your accommodation

With such a wide range of accommodation available one of the most important things to consider is the cost. Look at the total contract price as well as the weekly rate and consider any upfront costs and when the rent is due as this can be before arrival and payment of your student loan.

Private halls will also require a guarantor and there may be additional costs, such as upgrading your internet access or contents insurance.

The Student Accommodation Code

We are signed up to the UUK Student Accommodation Code of practice. This code is for universities and protects our students rights to safe, good quality accommodation.

The privately managed halls are all signed up to the ANUK National Code which is the equivalent code for private halls.

Other accommodation providers are available in Leicester, but they might not be covered by the codes.
