International Pathway (ONCAMPUS) Students

Information about the campus-based accommodation options for ONCAMPUS students on international pathway programmes. Find all the options available to you and how to register.

We understand that it is really important to have a safe space of your own to study and to feel at home.

That's why all our accommodation that is available to you is based on our beautiful campus right in the middle of everything the University and ONCAMPUS Loughborough have to offer, right next to both your pathway classes and the facilities and buildings you will use on your progression course.

About our accommodation

There are a wide choice of accommodation options available. These are called our halls of residence, or halls. You can choose either a catered hall where meals are provided for you, or a self-catered hall where you can cook meals for yourself.

Catered halls provide either two or three meals per day and then you can cater for yourself at the weekend. If you prefer to always cook for yourself, you may want to consider a self-catered hall.

Whichever option you choose, you will be in a safe, secure and friendly environment, making friends with fellow students and beginning your own Loughborough experience.

Frequently asked questions

What adapted accommodation is provided for students with a disability or health requirement?

If you have disability related accommodation requirements (e.g. a medicine fridge, en-suite room, memory foam mattress) then you need to contact the ONCAMPUS Loughborough welfare team. Once the ONCAMPUS team have undertaken an assessment with you and provided recommendations to the accommodation team, we will then be able to consider your room requirements, and your preferences, when looking at room allocation for you.

Do I need to pay a deposit to secure my accommodation?

No, we do not require a deposit payment prior to you moving into your accommodation. Once you have accepted your contract, your room is secured and you will be liable for all licence fees in accordance with our Terms and Conditions. Further information on payment can be found on the how to apply page.
