Nixon Court Blocks L-M are the newest part of The City accommodation and just a five-minute walk from campus. These blocks are new for 2021 as part of our Freemens Common Student Village development, with standard or premium single ensuites and single studio flats available. The vibrant Clarendon Park area is just around the corner and there's a cinema, restaurants and Morrison’s store close by. Nixon Court has two common rooms where our popular residence life events take place.

Building Works at Nixon Court

There will be some building works taking place at Nixon Court to refresh the buildings and develop our new accommodation nearby at Freemen’s Common. We aim to cause as little disruption as possible to residents, however construction teams will be accessing the site which may cause some traffic and limited parking availability. Where works are taking place in or around your building, we will notify you with the specific details once you have accepted your offer and in advance of the works.

Noisy works will be limited to working hours (typically 9am-5pm) and we will be taking exam periods into consideration throughout the year. Being in Nixon Court means you are only a short walk away from main campus, with a choice of fantastic study spaces and a 24-hour library, and Leicester city centre.
