JRU’s residential block is situated close to the main building and provides excellent facilities for students in a safe, comfortable environment. Many people view accommodation as being equally important to the programme of study. At JRU full attention is paid to making our students feel at home.

All rooms are fully furnished with bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers, and most rooms have wash basins too. The majority of students are provided with single rooms, however, there are also a number of shared rooms. There are showers and toilet facilities in each wing, and each floor has a small snack area for general use. The student library is situated on the ground floor.

Accommodation is full-board (breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and evening meal). Meals are served in the spacious dining hall where the students can enjoy a relaxed and sociable environment. The student tuck shop opens during non-academic hours and offers snacks, stationary etc.

Although situated in the heart of Leicester, the residential block is surrounded by a large well tended garden, providing privacy to students and a tranquil environment conducive to learning.

Married Students
Married students can easily find rented accommodation within walking distance and at competitive rates.
