I have been living at Luxurio for the past few weeks and have been very happy with my experience so far - building offers a super chill vibe which is perfect for students (incl. table tennis, pool table, and more games). The staff is very warm, welcoming, and helpful. If you’re a student at Loughborough, Luxurio is the place to live!

Brought my daughter here for her accommodation whilst at university and I wanted to move in myself lool. From moment of arrival with two car loads of her belongings it is apparent why everyone gets a time slot to arrive. Car queue to enter was extensive. Imagine many students are checking in to residents on same day. Eventually made it in to car park. Allotted an hour to check in and receive keys as well as pep talk about do's and dont's, was directed where to collect free bed toppers and some other freebies. Managed to get a shopping trolley from another parent as they had finished and unloaded cars and made trip to daughter's new digs. She has her own ensuite bathroom in her room, on a corridor of six other rooms. At end of corridor is a kitchen with sofa and living space. All but one block have lifts. Be sure to not get that block. Laundry facility and gym are in main reception block.

I highly recommend this place for young students; it was a home far away from home for my daughter who lived there for 2 years and was very safe and she had a nice experience, while studying abroad.

Pretty decent place with a lot of nice features and the rooms are very nice for students especially when you look at the price that they are paying for the product. They're sponsored by Samsung so they get a lot of different Samsung products, which definitely elevated this product even further.

I have been remotely liaising with Mrs Megan Sampson to find a suitable room for me. Megan is very helpful, friendly and sympathetic within her professional approach. She answered all my texts with little to no delay. I look forward to moving in.

I had an amazing experience living in luxurio. Lived in the townhouses. The room is big enough since the bathroom is not in there. The kitchen is massive, the view is good. For the amount I paid, it's totally worth it.

Student Accommodation in Loughborough FAQs

When should you start looking for student accommodation in Loughborough

This question is very common among students as the moving out hustle is real and choosing the right place to live at uni would make or break your uni experience, so we would recommend not leaving this major task till the last minute to ensure having enough time to search for a palace that suits your needs.

Unconditional offer:
In this case, whether you are an unconditional offer holder or a returning student, you are in a great place to start looking for your place for the next academic year. We advise you to take advantage of this opportunity and start searching and viewing places right away.

Conditional offer:
If you are a 1st-year student and a postgraduate who is still uncertain about your application status, we got your back on this one as we offer a free-of-charge cancellation due to our “No place no pay“ policy.

What should you keep in mind when selecting student accommodation in Loughborough?

After accepting your offer from the university, there is another big task ahead of you: where to live?!

Securing great student accommodation in a new city, or even a new country, can be a tough task and with too many options available it could be quite overwhelming. You need to ensure you have chosen the perfect location that offers all your desired amenities within your budget. 

In general, we have a few tips to help you choose the best accommodation for you:

  1. The location: The accommodation location should be a key factor to consider when searching the options as it should be close not just to campus but also to the other amenities and interests as well. Since Loughborough is a small town we recommend staying somewhere close to campus and also within walking distance from the town centre to have access to the wide range of restaurants, cafes, and pubs.
  2. Social habits: When choosing student housing, you should take your social habits and preferences into concentration. If you are a bit of an extrovert and a social butterfly you might enjoy sharing a space with multiple flatmates, on the other hand, if you are more on the private side you might enjoy a studio flat or a 2-bedroom apartment to share it with someone like-minded.
  3. Facilities: It is important to list the facilities you need e.g. greenspaces, communal areas, or bike storage, and look for places that cover your necessities.
