Postgraduate Accommodation in Leicester

Are you looking for Postgrad Student Accommodation in Leicester? At Queen Street Apartments our unique accommodation is within short walking distances to all amenities including the Leicester city train station, both the University’s in Leicester, the cultural arts quarter and social establishments.

Taking a course at university is a hugely exciting time of life, whatever age you choose to do it at. Along with the chance to add new skills and knowledge to your brain bank, it’s also an opportunity to discover all that a town or city has to offer, not to mention the chance to meet and make new friends.

But if you have started a university course as a mature student, or are a postgraduate, the thought of being in halls among lots of excited first years, fresh out of school and newly cut from their parents apron strings, might not be the most ideal. Other forms of student living in the local area can also be lacklustre with a focus on providing the cheapest accommodation possible to fit within the budget of someone leaving home for the first time.

And if this is the case, the chance to find suitable postgraduate accommodation in Leicester among like-minded professionals and mature students, might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Leicester accommodation to relax in and enjoy

Now, we’re not talking retirement homes here, but perhaps somewhere where you’re not having to clean vomit up off the stairs most weekends, or have your ear plugs become a permanent fixture.

Maybe you like the thought of a more grown up touch of luxury, with all the amenities, facilities and entertainment you could need right on your doorstep?

If you have just finished studying at De Montfort University or the University of Leicester, or are looking to stay in the Leicester area for a postgraduate course, PGCE or a Masters, we can help.

Our postgraduate accommodation in Leicester, includes studio, one and two bedroom and galleried apartments, located in a gorgeous setting in the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.

And with the likes of the Curve theatre and Phoenix independent cinema and art centre, not to mention a host of museums and art galleries, all close by, this area never fails to disappoint art lovers of all ages.

Likewise if you still want to experience the nightlife that Leicester has to offer we are only a short distance from all the well-known bars and clubs.

Or if you are a sports fan, we are close to both Leicester Tigers and Leicester City Football Club so you can show your support and get behind your team during home games.  Highlighting the range of interests that our accommodation can cater for ensuring that when you choose Queen Street Apartments you will never run out of things to see and do.
