How to apply for accommodation

Accept your offer by adding Leicester as your Clearing choice on UCAS Track. Within 24 hours of doing this, you’ll be able to register on our accommodation website and apply for your accommodation.

Registering on the accommodation website

To register, you’ll need:

  • Your nine-digit University of Leicester ID number (listed on your offer email from us)
  • Your surname
  • Your date of birth

You will then be able to complete and submit your application online. We will process your application, and then send you an accommodation offer by email. You will have five days to accept this offer through the accommodation portal.

Remember that we guarantee a place in University-managed accommodation to students applying before 1 September. If you apply for accommodation after that date, we will still offer you a room (subject to availability) or support you in finding accommodation elsewhere if we are full.
