Future Student Updates (COVID-19)


Leicester has a large student population so there is a wide range of high-quality student accommodation available across campus. 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 students.

The Global Study Centre is located at the heart of The Village, which is only a short bus ride to the main Campus and the City Centre. If you choose to stay in The Village, you will be in walking distance of a local supermarket, shops as well as all the Village facilities including a laundrette, gym and more!

The Village accommodation is surrounded by beautiful green space and is also home to the University of Leicester’s very own Botanical Gardens. The Village is enriched with a range of converted Edwardian villas and lodges and each room has its own unique features including secret gardens and wood panelling décor.

The Village 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 The Village accommodation site. For full information, visit The Village.

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 2021 then you will be guaranteed a room within one of The Village 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.
