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 GSC students mix with other University of Leicester students, creating great social opportunities for all.

City Living accommodation is close to the University campus, GSC and the city centre. If you choose to live here, 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 Living 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!

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 link in an email, approximately 72 hours after you receive your Conditional Offer.

If you book before the 1st September 2019 then you will be guaranteed a room within one of the City Living 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.
