Campus Living

Prospective students

Welcome to Loughborough University!

We know that choosing where you live while studying at Loughborough is one of the most important decisions you will make. It is our aim to make sure that you have some of the best times of your life while you are living in a University hall.  We are committed to providing you with safe, well managed, comfortable accommodation and give each of our student customers the chance to discover the 'Loughborough experience'.

Campus accommodation is about convenience, community and not having to get a bus to get to lectures in the morning or to go home at night! There are dining halls, cafes, bars, big screen TVs, the Students’ Union, laundrettes and bike storage – all on the doorstep. Most rooms are at the heart of the campus, near to the Library and lecture rooms and close to the Students’ Union.

Living in a hall provides you with a superb hall student committee, an unrivalled pastoral warden care system with trained University staff and a dedicated housekeeping team.

Like living at home but better - you live with your friends!

On these pages you can find information about our accommodation and some of the services we offer at Loughborough. If you have a particular query, please check our Frequently Asked Questions. If you can’t find the answer there please get in touch.

Our guarantee

As a potential Undergraduate student, if you make Loughborough your firm choice University and apply prior to 1 August, we will guarantee you a room in University accommodation.

This guarantee is for the first year of study only.

If you miss the deadline we can't guarantee you a room but will do our best to accommodate you! 

Our promise

Postgraduate students who receive full acceptance onto their course and apply for accommodation prior to 1 September, will be given priority when University halls accommodation is allocated.

If you come to Loughborough as a BTec Art FoundationErasmus Exchange or as an insurance student, halls accommodation is not guaranteed, however we promise to help you secure University allocated accommodation either on campus or by referral to an off campus approved provider.  Any applications received after 1 September will only be considered subject to availability.

Please see our announcements page for any update on our accommodation applications.

If you want to bring your partner or family to Loughborough, we have limited suitable accommodation – please contact us for further information.
