Private accommodation

We know the importance of finding the perfect place to live whilst studying at Loughborough. As well as a friendly and safe University market town, Loughborough offers an extensive range of private accommodation off campus.

Studentpad is our official Loughborough University student accommodation search engine and lets you search for student houses, flats and lodgings in Loughborough and the UK that have been approved by our Student Accommodation Centre. These range from individual rooms with shared facilities and shared houses suitable for groups, to self-contained flats and large private halls.

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

Most private accommodation in Loughborough is located within a short 10–15-minute walk from campus, including the town centre. 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
