Making an Application
Register for an accommodation account to make an application. The admissions office will let you know when it’s time to apply. Once you’ve sent off your application, we’ll allocate you to a room.
When you receive your accommodation offer, we’ll send you an email to let you know. You can review your offer and decide whether to accept or reject it. You’ll get 3 days to make your decision.
When to apply and when you’ll hear back
The allocations team aims to respond to your application within particular timescales depending on your course offer status.
If you have accepted our unconditional offer as your firm choice, you can apply for accommodation when applications open on our online system. We will contact you with details of your accommodation offer as soon as we can, usually within five days. Please be aware this may take longer during busy periods, so please be patient. You can check on the status of your application at any time by logging into your account.
If you have accepted our unconditional offer as your insurance choice, you can apply for accommodation when applications open on our online system. We will process applications and contact you with the details of your accommodation offer when you're confirmed to be coming to the University of Leicester (i.e. if you don't meet the requirements for your firm choice on results day).
If you have accepted our conditional offer as your firm choice, you can apply for accommodation when applications open on our online system. Once you get your results and your place becomes unconditional, we will process applications and contact you with the details of your accommodation offer.
If you have accepted our conditional offer as your insurance choice, you cannot apply for accommodation until you accept our offer. Once your place on the course becomes unconditional, you can apply for accommodation. We will process applications and contact you with details of your accommodation.
If you contact us during Clearing, or through UCAS Extra, you can accept your offer of study on UCAS Track. Within 24 hours of doing this, you'll be able to register on the accommodation website and apply for your accommodation. We will contact with you details of your accommodation offer. If you apply before 1 September you are guaranteed an offer of University-managed accommodation.
Registering for an Accommodation Account
You’ll need your student ID number to register for an account. If you don’t have one yet, you should wait to receive this from admissions.
When you accept your accommodation offer, you’ll need to pay a £250 pre-payment to secure your accommodation. This is deducted from your first fee instalment and is not a deposit.
Changing Your Offer
We will always make you the best offer we can, but if you do wish to change we recommend that you get in touch so we can discuss what’s available. We may even be able to change your offer without any need for you to reject and reapply.
