Future Student Updates (COVID-19)



Leicester has a large student population so there is a wide range of high-quality student accommodation available across the city. The Global Study Centre (GSC) team work closely with the University Accommodation Office to find the right place for each student to live, ensuring that students mix with other University of Leicester students, creating great social opportunities for all.

The City accommodation is close to the University campus, Global Study Centre and the city centre. If you choose to live in one of the three locations on offer, then you will also have the advantage of being close to a range of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes, as well as the train station.

The City accommodation is self-catered with supermarkets within walking distance, as well as a variety of food options on campus. You can also purchase catering credit to use in on-campus cafes and restaurants if you don’t think of yourself as a chef!

There is an active events and activities calendar in each The City accommodation site. For full information, visit The City.

Booking Process

As a Global Study Centre student, you can make your room preference choices online whilst still on Conditional Offer status. You will receive all information and a Room Service booking portal link in an email, approximately 72 hours after you receive your Conditional Offer. You cannot log into the portal until you have a unique student ID, contained within the email.

If you book before 1st September 2020 then you will be guaranteed a room within one of The City accommodation blocks.

For students under the age of 18 on enrolment, it is mandatory for you to choose an en-suite room option. Once you turn 18, there is a contract break out clause, allowing you to choose alternative accommodation if preferred.
