    Hello Georgina, i’m Victoria. I am from Barcelona, Spain. Next year I will be studying abroad in Leicester ( i’m also studying third year of law) and I would like to know if you could give me some advice as for the accommodation. My preference would be a single ensuite room near the campus, if possible. Or is it better in the surroandings at Oadby Village?
    Thank you so much for your attention and sorry to bother you.

    Looking forward to hear from you

      Hi Victoria!

      City living accommodation is the closest to the campus and the city centre. Freeman’s Common, Nixon Court and Opal Court are about a 5 minute walk away from campus. If you were to choose to live in any of these city living sites you would be within walking distance of your classes, the library and all of the shops, restaurants, the cinema and the train station located in the city centre. The walk from the other city living site, the Mary Gee Houses, to the University campus takes roughly 30 minutes.

      The great thing about living in Oadby Student Village is that the gardens which surround the halls are beautiful, the atmosphere is quite calm and peaceful, and it is nice to feel part of such a big student community. The downside is that it is a 40 minute walk to campus from Oadby Student Village or a 15 minute bus ride. I decided to get a bus pass which I used to get both to campus and to the city centre. I really enjoyed getting the bus to Uni each day because it gave me a chance to relax and chat to friends before my classes.

      If being close to the University campus is a priority for you then city living accommodation will suit you best.

      If you haven’t already I would definitely suggest having a look through the Accommodation web pages which you can find here for more information about the different halls of residence and the room types they offer.

      If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to leave another comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

      Wishing you all the best,
