Tips for choosing accommodation

Check out our top tips for choosing accommodation. Remember most of all to be open-minded and don't limit yourself - coming to University is a time to try new things and meet as many new people as possible!

What’s your budget?

Before you start making any decisions you'll need to have a think about budget, so that you know what halls are available within your price range. You may be eligible for a student loan that will cover the cost of your accommodation too, so do your research in advance.

Let us do the cooking for you!

Catered halls are a traditional part of the Loughborough student experience. Dining halls are a fantastic way to socialise, plus if coursework deadlines are looming you can eat and dash - no need to worry about shopping, cooking and washing up! Alternatively, self-catered halls provide the opportunity to improve your cooking skills and look after yourself.
