Choosing accommodation

Accommodation for postgraduates

As a postgraduate student, you can choose between self-catered accommodation in University Halls or privately rented accommodation. Sulets, a lettings agency run by our Students’ Union, can offer you advice and assistance with finding a safe property of the quality that you are looking for.

If you're a new postgraduate student holding an offer from the University, you're guaranteed a place in University allocated accommodation if you apply for accommodation by 1 September.

If you opt for Halls of Residence, we'll usually offer you self-catered accommodation within easy reach of the main campus and the city centre and we will always try to allocate a room at the site of your choice. If we are unable to do so we will try to offer you a room close to other postgraduate students. Most of our self-catered accommodation has specific areas set aside specifically for postgraduate and senior students.

Please note that we do not offer postgraduates accommodation in the Oadby Student Village, apart from in exceptional circumstances.

We offer a range of good quality accommodation, with a choice of several different price bands, so that you can find the right accommodation for your needs.

Choosing accommodation that’s right for you

When choosing accommodation you’ll need to consider your budget, the type of accommodation you'd like and where you'd like to be based.

All of our rooms come with a bed, wardrobe, desk, chair, shelves, a pinboard and wi-fi, as well as access to laundry facilities and our supportive team of Residential Advisers. On top of all that, you can choose whether you’d like a particular location or the luxury of an en-suite.
