Campus and accommodation tours

Great news – campus is open! At last, you can visit us in person and see why the University of Leicester is an outstanding place to study. Explore your new home, and find out more about where you will be living, studying and socialising.

Our campus is friendly and compact – you’re always going to bump into someone you know – but with plenty of space and new things to discover. And we’ve made a lot of Covid-related adaptations over the past year to keep all our students, staff and visitors safe.

Our accommodation is open too, so we can show you around The Village. This unique collection of vintage and modern buildings, surrounded by green space, has a fantastic social scene and great facilities for sport, study and relaxation. Accommodation tours are run by our Residence Life team who run events and will support you throughout the year.

When can I visit?

We are running our campus and accommodation tours every weekday between Monday 17 May and Friday 11 June. We are also running two Saturdays: 22 May and 5 June.

You can book on any date. For some subjects we are also able to offering subject-specific opportunities on certain dates, such as lab tours or the chance to chat with one of your tutors. These sessions also include a campus and accommodation tour. Don’t worry if your subject isn’t listed below – you can pick any date and book a campus and accommodation tour.

Fill in the form, select your date and select your sessions on the next page. Places are limited so make sure you book soon. (And do please let us know if you need to cancel or change your date, so that we can offer your place to someone else.)
