When it comes to student living Leicester has some amazing opportunities to really make the most out of your time at university. 

We love our city, and those of us who get to live here all the time know that anyone who has decided to take a course at either De Montfort University, or the University of Leicester is in for a real treat.

What studying in Leicester has to offer is a student life experience to really remember. From the amazing nightlife, to the many events which showcase Leicester’s multicultural diversity, the celebrations of music and art, the city’s wealth of history and its sporting prowess, there really is something for everyone to enjoy. 

In addition, the range of student accommodation available is streets apart from the old fashioned image of student digs of yesteryear. Now, you’ll find that student living in Leicester might include the use of a communal cinema room, gymnasium or swimming pool. Properties often come with ensuite bathrooms, built in appliances and money off the bills. 

So much new student accommodation has popped up in the last few years that any student living in Leicester would be hard pushed to find a place that isn’t up to scratch.


Find the perfect pad 

To get the most out of your studies you need the right student accommodation, but that doesn’t just mean finding a place which looks nice. 

Different things mean the most to different people and no two students are the same, so what’s right for one person, may be wrong for another. As such, before you look at student living in Leicester make a list of what your priorities are, with regard to the place where you’ll be living. 

Consider the following for your student accommodation: 

  • Location (what’s important to have nearby?)
  • Budget restraints 
  • Type of accommodation (a studio flat, multi-bed apartment or student house?)
  • Whether you prefer peace or pandemonium 
  • What are the must haves in your apartment
  • Furnished or unfurnished? 
  • Is public transport available?
  • What would you like to be included in the rent – for example, are bills included? 

Knowing exactly what you want from your student accommodation is the best way to find the place that will let you get the very best out of your student living, so go prepared with a good idea of what it is you’re looking for. After that, make sure to view as many properties as you can and get in nice and early to get your pick of the best.
