Living halls are approximately a 10 minute walk from the main campus. All halls offer social events for students throughout the year.

Costs

Leicester is consistently rated one of the most affordable places in the UK. How much each student spends will depend on their choices.
Please see here for details on how to estimate living costs during your studies:
https://le.ac.uk/study/undergraduates/fees-funding/living-costs

Surveys by HSBC (14/15) have found that the University of Leicester is the most affordable place for undergraduate students in the UK.

How much a student spends will depend on their choices, however we estimate that students should budget approx. Eur. 880,- per month for a student lifestyle to cover accommodation, lighting, heating, food and personal expenses (*2017)

 

Visa

If your passport is from a country outside the EU/EEA, then you will need to apply for a Student Visa/Entry Clearance.

When you need a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you will also need to meet the English language requirements for that. These requirements are set by the UK Government.
