Off-campus accommodation

If you would prefer to live off-campus, in private accommodation, the Student Accommodation Centre advertises accommodation for private landlords on Studentpad.

All accommodation is privately owned and has been inspected by the University to ensure it meets the required standard. All landlords are independently accredited by a scheme run in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council.

Most private sector accommodation in Loughborough is within a two mile radius of the campus – well within walking distance. There is also a local bus service, which runs frequently between the campus and train station via the town centre.

There is a large variation of rents in the private sector reflecting location, size, condition and style of fixtures and fittings.

The following is a guide to assist you when choosing your accommodation.

Accommodation typeApproximate cost
Single room in shared student house (not including utility bills) £2,200 - £4,200 per year
Houses and flats (not including utility bills) £5,700 - £7,200 per year

Assured shorthold tenancy agreements for private sector accommodation for postgraduate students are usually for 52 weeks.

Our Student Accommodation Centre offers:

  • friendly, free and helpful advice for all of your accommodation needs
  • a good choice of University-approved private accommodation

You may want to come to Loughborough a couple of weeks before your course begins, so that you can look for accommodation. Most landlords prefer the accommodation to
be viewed prior to offering a tenancy.

We have overnight and short term accommodation available on campus in the University Lodge. For further information and booking email or visit our accommodation website.
