How to apply for student halls
Once you have received your academic offer from us and you have made Loughborough University your firm choice, you will be able to start to apply for accommodation.
Before you can apply, you will need your UCAS application number (or if you are applying for an Art foundation Diploma, your University application number), and a non-academic email address.
The accommodation application portal requires you to register before you can login for the first time. We will email you, to let you know when to register.
You will need to create your own username and password to access the accommodation application portal. We recommend that you do not use your current school or college email, as we will continue to send emails to the email address you provide throughout your studies.
Once you have registered, we will send a confirmation email. You will also receive an email from the Student Accommodation Centre to advise when you are eligible to proceed to the application stage.
Once your academic place at Loughborough has been confirmed, you will be eligible to apply for accommodation. If you have an Unconditional offer, you will be eligible to use Room Reserve from early June. If you have a Conditional offer, you will be eligible to use Room Reserve from mid-August.
