Applying for accommodation as a pre-sessional student

If you are attending one of the University's pre-sessional courses we can guide you through your accommodation options and help you find a place to live.

As a pre-sessional student, you have the option of living on campus in one of our halls of residence or off campus in private rented accommodation while you complete your course.

There are several pre-sessional courses which vary in duration. Once you know which one you are on we can help you secure accommodation. Accommodation for the duration of Pre-sessional Courses C and D is available on campus in Telford hall. Breakfast, lunch and evening meals (from Monday to Friday) are included in the accommodation fee.

Dedicated support for international students

At Loughborough University we have a dedicated International Student Experience team who provide students with a range of events, activities and drop-ins throughout the year.

When you arrive on campus, the International Student Experience team will provide a full orientation for pre-sessional students based around your studies. We will be hosting a range of activities for you and other international students to take part with over the Summer holidays. This orientation will ensure you settle in, make new friends and that you benefit from the opportunities Loughborough has to offer and will enrich your student experience.

You will also receive pastoral support from the International Student Experience team to make sure you're settling into university life with us on campus.

Plus, you can always access our world-leading sporting equipment during the Summer – here you will benefit from the best sporting facilities at a better price than gyms in town.

Once you move on to your degree programme, the International Student Experience team will continue to provide events throughout your time at Loughborough including our Easter and Christmas programmes, should you decide to stay on campus during the vacations.
