Halls of residence

Every single one of our halls of residence has a unique personality of its own – whichever one becomes your home, we know you’ll remember being part of it forever.

The community spirit in our halls of residence is unrivalled by any UK university. Where you live and who you live with will create some of the best memories of your university career. Each room contains a bed, storage, desk, chair, shelves and a noticeboard. You will also have access to laundry facilities, bike storage, a common room, internet access and the support of a fantastic hall committee system who will ensure that hall life remains supportive and fun for everyone.

International students

International students from outside the EU are guaranteed hall accommodation within the same hall for any two years of their undergraduate study. You should note that, when you apply for your student visa, the UKVI will require you to be able to demonstrate that you have at least £1,015 per month available for your maintenance costs, up to a minimum annual total of £9,135.

If you receive an offer to study at Loughborough and make us your firm choice, you’ll be able to apply for your place in halls online from May. Our Student Accommodation Centre will email you to explain how and when to do this.

Hall community

Over 5,300 undergraduate students live in University halls on (or very close to) the campus, and are at the very centre of student life. At Loughborough we offer 15 different halls for you to choose from, providing you with the best place to start your university life.

From day one you will make friends with fellow students, become part of the hall community and begin your own Loughborough experience. There is a wide range of accommodation available to suit every budget and catering preference. Take a look at the accommodation fees and what facilities and services are included within this fee.

Catering options

In total there are seven catered halls and eight self-catered halls at Loughborough. Our communal dining halls for catered students are a traditional part of the Loughborough experience and are often favoured for their relaxed and sociable approach to meal times. We are committed to providing healthy, varied and homecooked options across all dining halls, so there is something to suit all tastes.

Students in self-catered halls can purchase discounted meals in dining halls and there are numerous convenience stores scattered across campus. Off campus there are several large grocery stores located nearby, including a Tesco, Aldi and Sainsbury’s.
