Housing @ Loughborough

How to apply for your room

All applications for Halls accommodation are conducted online – no paperwork to complete!

Once you have your academic offer and you have made Loughborough your firm choice you will be able to start to apply for your accommodation.

As a Postgraduate student, you can apply by the Room Preference method only.

Reserving a room online

If you reserve a room online, you can choose where you want to live from a selection of available room types in a specific Hall of Residence. You will be required to accept the Terms & Conditions of occupancy and accept the online contract.  Once you have been issued with a Loughborough University registration number, you will then use this to pay the room bond to secure the contract – the room bond should be paid within 8 days of the issue of your registration number.

Off campus

Many students choose to live in accommodation off campus. There is a wide selection of privately owned accommodation in Loughborough. These range from individual rooms with shared facilities, shared houses suitable for groups, self contained flats and bedsits and large private halls.

Landlords and agents will start to market their properties from as early as November for the following academic year. There is no need for you to feel pressured into securing accommodation as there is plenty to go around.  Take your time to get to know the town and the people that you may want to share with. Committing yourself to something too early could result in a very costly mistake.

We start advertising University Approved accommodation on the 1st December every year and aim to offer a high standard of privately owned accommodation in Loughborough.  All properties advertised by the Student Accommodation Centre have been inspected by us.  We are here to offer support and advice during your tenancy – please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns.

The Student Accommodation Centre work closely with the Students Union to promote the Housing Bazaar early in December, we will be happy to speak to you there  to discuss all of your accommodation options.  We urge students to wait until this time to start thinking about accommodation for next year.

What we offer?

We aim to offer a high standard of privately owned accommodation in Loughborough. All properties advertised by the Student Accommodation Centre have been inspected by us. Our private landlords have been accredited by DASH Landlord Accreditation and meet the standards set in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council.

We have listened to student feedback and identified your priorities when looking for accommodation. We have introduced a property grading scheme for individual properties, to reflect additional facilities provided over and above the already high standards expected.

These one and two bedroom flats are fully furnished and inclusive of bills with monthly payments, have internet access available, free parking and site patrolled by University Security.

All our properties are advertised on Studentpad, on display boards in the Student Accommodation Centre, and in handouts which are circulated on campus.
