Living in Leicester
For many students, attending university is their first experience of moving away from home and living independently. As a parent, you will want to be confident that your child's new home is safe, accessible and has plenty going on.
Leicester is a multicultural and welcoming city which has been ranked as the ninth best city in the UK in which to live and work, ahead of London, Birmingham, Nottingham and Derby ( 2017 Good Growth for Cities Index).
Our campus is less than 5 minutes’ walk from the centre of Leicester city, meaning there are lots of activities nearby for students to enjoy, including shopping, sport, music, theatre, film and comedy.
