We have tailored a short stay package to allow you to attend campus for shorter periods of time, in line with your Ignite programme.

Short stay up to 1-2 months. The benefits are:

• You will stay in Covid-secure accommodation, with your own bedroom, shower room, toilet and kitchen.
• You will receive a bedding, towel and self-catering pack.
• You will have access to on-site laundry facilities.
• You will be able to leave your accommodation and then return for your next on campus activity without having to pay to keep your room, and you will receive new bedding and towels.

If you wish to stay for longer than a month we require you switch to a termly package. The benefits are:

• You can save on your accommodation fees by booking a termly package, which is around 1/3 less per night on average!
• Benefit from the Residence Life programme including events and activities, loan items (e.g. DVDs and games consoles) and on-site wellbeing support
• Join a community in halls of residence by forming a household bubble in your flat with other students where there’s no requirement for social distancing
• By joining a community and staying in Leicester for longer, you’ll be able to get involved in our social events and over 250 student groups with the Students’ Union to meet new people and build friendships that will last your whole time at University
• Stay in Leicester for longer to take advantage of the University’s blended learning approach, Ignite. You’ll be able to take advantage of any face-to-face sessions offered by your department and use facilities such as study rooms and the University library
• Have more flexibility to kit out your room how you wish! By staying for longer it’ll be more worthwhile to decorate with your favourite photos and home comforts
