University’s Rent-a-Room scheme launches

The University is delighted to launch the Rent-a-Room scheme.

The scheme provides a facility for employees of the University to advertise accommodation to visiting academics, doctoral researchers and newly employed staff who are seeking short-term accommodation while they settle in and get to know the local area.  

The website lists available accommodation and the contact details for property owners so that prospective occupants can get in touch. Prospective occupants can access the scheme’s secure website once they have received their Loughborough IT credentials, prior to their official start date. Any agreements reached through the scheme are solely between property owners and occupants.

Anyone wishing to use the scheme is strongly advised to read the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Notice, and to do their own research before proceeding.

The website can be accessed here (you will need to log in using your University IT credentials and VPN if accessing the site off-campus).

The scheme is operated by the Student Accommodation Centre and any queries can be emailed to
