Moving into your accommodation
You will be able to move into University accommodation at the start of semester. Upon arrival in Leicester, you should go directly to your accommodation following the instructions given to you by Accommodation Services or your landlord.
Welcome week takes place during the first week of the academic year, and includes a range of activities and informative talks designed to support you during your orientation to the University.
There is also a Welcome Programme in early January for students starting in the second semester.
If you are starting in September and are interested in coming to Leicester earlier, why not attend the HeadStart+ Course? This is a two-week course aimed at improving your academic skills and introducing you to academic practice at Leicester. The course will also give you chance to meet new people from all over the world before the start of the academic year. The Study Skills course runs for 2 weeks, from early to late September. Please contact the Centre for International Training and Education for further information.
