Applying for accommodation as a postgraduate student
If you've received an offer to study as a postgraduate student, you can register for accommodation on the Loughborough campus from mid-May. Accommodation can be reserved online once you have met the conditions of your academic offer.
If you are a postgraduate student starting your course in October and want to apply for our halls of residence, we're here to guide you through the process and support you every step of the way.
Research students who are due to arrive in December, April and July, please contact us for details of availability.
Students studying on our London campus should refer to the information on our Loughborough University London website.
Step one - Register and research your options
Take a look at our postgraduate halls of residence and the type of accommodation available for you.
We have lots of information on each postgraduate hall of residence alongside photos, 360 degree tours and videos to help you make an informed choice.
When you make an application, we will be asking you for your preferences so make sure you have an idea of what you are looking for but don't limit yourself to one choice. All our halls offer a great environment to study and have a strong community spirit.
From mid-May you will be able to register on the Accommodation Hub. Our online reservation system will guide you through the short registration process and when this is complete you will receive a confirmation email.
When you are eligible to make an application, you will be able to reserve your accommodation online from a live list of available accommodation.
Step two - Reserve your accommodation
Once you have met the conditions of your offer for your postgraduate course, you can reserve your accommodation online from a live list of available options.
When you select a room it will be held for 15 minutes for you to complete the reservation. If you do not complete the reservation in that time, it will be released, and you will need to make a new selection.
Step three - Agree your accommodation contract
Once you have reserved a room online, you will have 5 days to review and accept the offer.
You will need to enter your login username and password that you created when you registered to accept your contract online. At this point you will be entering into a legally binding agreement with the University - your landlord.
You will be sent an email confirming your contract via the email address you specified on your University application.
It's important that you
- Confirm your room by accepting the terms and conditions and online contract.
- Complete the online induction and book your arrival slot (available from late August).
We're here to help, so if you experience any problems applying for your accommodation, please contact us.
