Our City Living accommodation is conveniently located within walking distance of the University campus, the city centre and the train station. Living so close to campus makes those all-important trips to the Library shorter and you’re in the perfect location to explore the city.

Self-catered rooms

All of our rooms in City Living are self-catered, giving you the freedom and independence to cook and eat what you like, when you like. This means that if you’ve got extra work to do in the library, you don’t need to rush home for a set meal time.

Areas for postgraduates only

We understand that postgraduate students have different priorities for studying and relaxing. This is why we have specific areas set aside for postgraduate students, giving you the chance to spend more time with like-minded people.

Support and events

Our Residence Life team are on hand if you need some additional support or someone to talk to. They are also responsible for ensuring that the noise levels in halls are kept to a minimum so that you can study in peace.

The Residence Life team are there to promote a sense of community and to provide you with opportunities to meet other students while you’re in halls. There are events throughout the year, from coffee nights to trips to some of Leicestershire’s most popular tourist destinations, giving you a chance to find out more about your new home and the people that live there.

Gym on your doorstep

After a long day on campus you’ll want your gym to be close at hand. Our Danielle Brown Sports Centre is on campus and open long hours, so whether you’re training for your new sports club or varsity, or you just want to keep fit, you can fit your exercise regime around your studies.


We look out for you throughout your time in halls.  We have security patrols on site every night to make sure that the area is safe. Our team is on hand 24/7 to respond to any incidents which do occur.

We look forward to welcoming you to life in halls at the University of Leicester.
