How and when to apply for student accommodation

Our Accommodation team are here to help you every step of the way through the accommodation application process.

Here’s an outline of the key steps in the accommodation application process and when these happen so you know what to expect and when. For the most up to date information visit our accommodation website.

Before May

Research our accommodation options

We recommend that you take a look at all our halls and decide the type of accommodation that you’d prefer - have an idea of budget and where on campus you’d be interested in living.

Early May

We’ll email you

You’ll get an email in early May telling you how and when you can register. Keep an eye on your spam/junk folder in case it goes in there. If you can visit one of our open events, you can ask our staff any questions you might have to help you make your decisions.

It’s important to read the occupancy Licence Terms and Conditions too at this point.

Late May / Early June


Once you’ve firmly accepted your offer to study at Loughborough, you’ll need to register on our accommodation system before you can log in for the first time. (Tip - don’t forget to make a note of your username and password!)

We will guarantee you a room in University accommodation if you register before the end of July. You can check the exact date on our accommodation Announcements page.


Application and room reservation

When you place at Loughborough has been confirmed, you’ll be able to apply for accommodation.

All you need to do is to log in to your account and follow the instructions.

When the Room Reservation system opens, you’ll be able to see the rooms that are available to book rather than them be automatically allocated. (Tip – it can get very busy, so have your list of preferences ready to go).

Late August

Accommodation contract

When everything is confirmed, you just need to accept the contract, confirm your room, complete the online induction and then book your arrival slot.

Welcome to Loughborough!
