If you're considering returning to live in Halls, please note:

  • Applications are not on a 'first come' basis - remember to apply using the 2023-24 application tab!
  • Late applicants will be held on a 'waiting list'.  
  • You will not be able to reserve your room online - you will be asked to register up to 5 preferences for accommodation, offers will then be sent via email from March 2023.  
  • Wardens will usually give first priority to their current hall students, if you wish to be considered for an alternative hall you are advised to email the relevant Warden (contact details are on the hall pages).

Our advice is not to sign a contract until after your January exams.

Food for thought

Each year many students come to the University Student Advice and Support or the Accommodation Centre for help with getting out of a housing contract that they no longer want.

Most of these enquiries are from students that had rushed / jumped / been pressured / bullied into signing a contract way too early (sometimes within fresher’s week, or their first weeks of university studies).

Signing too early has a very real potential for causing a number of dilemmas:

  • Sign for accommodation that you cannot afford
  • Joining with a group of “friends” that later become your worst enemies
  • Sign a room and later decide that you don’t wish to continue your studies / or attend a different university
  • Booking accommodation that is in a terrible condition when you go to move in, despite looking fine when you viewed it (10 months earlier)

Many agents in town are targeting students to ‘sign up now’. Don’t feel pressured into making a rush decision, there is plenty of accommodation available in Loughborough. The longer you leave it - the more chance you have to negotiate a deal and avoid paying Summer rent. The best bargains are often to be had by waiting until later in the year. Don't rush into renting.

The Student Accommodation Centre will help you find accommodation, be it halls or a house, that is right for you.
