Guaranteed accommodation

DMU is offering guaranteed accommodation for UK first year undergraduate students looking to start in the 2023/24 academic year.

We know that finding somewhere to live is an important part of your university journey, and you’ll want to choose somewhere that is safe, close to campus and has all the amenities you need. We’re here to support you in this, and help you find your new home at DMU. We guarantee to secure your room in either DMU-owned halls or through one of our approved private accommodation partners.

We want to ensure you feel settled and comfortable during your time here, all our accommodation is perfectly located close to campus and just a short walk from Leicester’s vibrant city-centre. Being within walking distance will not only reduce your travel costs, but will also allow you to create a study-life balance and enjoy everything the city has to offer. In our halls, all of your bills, including your electricity, heating, WiFi and gas, are included in the rent you pay, allowing you to feel more secure and making budgeting your money much easier.

To be eligible, we ask that you make DMU your firm choice on UCAS on or before Thursday 8 June 2023 to start in the 2023/24 academic year. Once you have made DMU your firm choice, we will email you details on how to book your room when our accommodation booking system opens. Try to complete this process as soon as you can to ensure you have as much choice as possible. Accommodation bookings need to be made by Thursday 15 June 2023, after which the guarantee offer will expire if a booking hasn’t been made by you. If you miss the accommodation booking deadline, don’t worry - there may still be accommodation available to book later on, but it will not form part of our ‘guarantee’ and will be subject to availability.

You can view rooms that are available on the DMU booking system. If you decide to book a room directly through DMU, you can select your specific room as part of our personalised booking system. If there are no rooms on the DMU booking system which meet your requirements, the Accommodation Team will refer you to one of our private accommodation partners.

Our Accommodation Team are here to support you in the process of applying for a room, and you can get in touch with them at .


There are also plenty of options for international students to secure accommodation, find out more on our international accommodation page.



Terms and conditions for UK students
