Private accommodation

We know the importance of finding the perfect place to live whilst studying at Loughborough; for you this might mean living off-campus. We offer a wide selection of privately owned student accommodation through our official Loughborough University student accommodation search engine: Studentpad.

Studentpad lets you search for student houses, student homes, flats and lodgings in Loughborough and the UK. These range from individual rooms with shared facilities, shared houses suitable for groups, self-contained flats to large private halls.

To give you peace of mind we inspect all privately owned accommodation to make sure it meets our required standards. All landlords are independently accredited by a scheme run in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council (DASH Landlord Accreditation).

Most private sector accommodation in Loughborough is within a two mile radius of the campus – well within walking distance. There is also a local bus service, which runs frequently between the campus and train station via the town centre.

There is a large variation of rents in the private sector reflecting location, size, condition and style of fixtures and fittings.

The following is a guide to rental prices to assist you when choosing your accommodation.

  • single room in shared student house (including utility bills): £2,200 - £5,720 per year
  • self contained flats - whole property (including utility bills): £6,760 - £9,000 per year

Our Student Accommodation Centre offers:

  • friendly, free and helpful advice for all of your accommodation needs
  • a good choice of University-approved private accommodation
  • support and advice during your tenancy

You may want to come to Loughborough a couple of weeks before your course begins, so that you can look for accommodation. Most landlords prefer the accommodation to be viewed prior to offering a tenancy. We also have overnight and short term accommodation available on campus in the University Lodge.
