House hunting


Finding a home

It can be daunting when it comes to finding a home but we are here to help and inform you about the main points of finding and securing a property. This page will help you with handy information so that you can find somewhere to live whilst at University.


First year students

As a new first year undergraduate student at the University of Leicester, you are guaranteed an offer of University-managed accommodation if you apply before 1 September in the year that you start your degree.

More information is available here.


All students

There are many ways that you can find a property including through a letting agent or online property websites. The University of Leicester Students’ Union run the ‘Housemate Finder’ Facebook page, dedicated to providing accommodation sharing services to students.

The page can be used to either look for people to live with or somewhere to live.

We have also summarised some of the available estate agents and landlords.
If you would like more information about this please get in touch.
