Policies and procedures
When you accept your accommodation contract you are agreeing to our Terms and Conditions of Residence, and accompanying policies. These can be downloaded to view below. If you have any questions about our policies, you should contact us before accepting your accommodation contract.
Terms and Conditions of Residence
Our legally-binding Terms and Conditions of Residence, your tenancy agreement with the University.
Complaints and Feedback
We work hard to ensure an excellent experience for all students who are living with us and are continuing to develop and improve our services.
Where issues with buildings and facilities have occurred and we have been informed, we will make every effort to provide a reasonable alternative, as outlined in the Terms and Conditions of Residence. If no reasonable alternative can be offered then a rent rebate may be paid.
Damage and Charges
We know accidents and damages happen when living in university accommodation but anything you break or damage needs to be fixed and paid for. All residents have a responsibility to keep their accommodation clean and tidy without causing damage, including communal areas.
Residents may be notified that charges are being applied to their account after a breach in the Terms and Conditions of Residence. This document outlines the process for appealing residential charges.
Withdrawal and Cancellation
If you are considering withdrawing from accommodation, we will arrange a meeting with the Residence Life Team to support you with your decision.
Students allocated a room in University accommodation may apply to transfer to another room or a different site by contacting the Accommodation Team.
This information is for students with disabilities and long term conditions who may need adaptations to their room in accommodation. The University encourages students to think carefully about their specific accommodation needs.
Pets and Assistance Animals
This policy is intended to clarify the University’s position on any pets brought into the University accommodation for students living with us, including assistance animals and emotional support animals.
University Shuttle Bus
Our regular term-time bus service between The Village and the University of Leicester Campus, via Brookfield School of Business (and Stoughton Road Playing Fields on Wednesday afternoons) is the University Shuttle Bus, run directly by the University and operated by Centrebus.
E-scooters are currently illegal to use on pavements, cycle lanes or in pedestrian areas. E-scooters must not be brought onto University grounds or within University buildings. This policy also covers the use of e-scooters in and around accommodation.
