CODE Leicester: just 320m to DMU

Our studio flats are conveniently located just 320 metres from De Montfort University campus - which makes us a great student accommodation choice. It will take you just minutes to walk to your lectures! 

We’re close to Leicester City Centre and offer a city-based option for students studying at Leicester University campuses.

We benefit from a more tranquil setting, with a picturesque riverside location. Many of our rooms have great views of the river and over Bede Park. Read Cerys’s views of her riverside room in her blog.

Plus, we have our very own cafe on site - so don't even need to leave the complex to get your favourite meals. They'll even deliver straight to your door!

City centre living 

With our student accommodation, you’re just minutes away from the bars, restaurants and take-aways of Braunstone Gate, with much of Leicester’s nightlife on your doorstep.

There’s a ‘convenience store’ on the corner of our street, so you can stock up on whatever essentials you need. While there’s a late-night, national supermarket (Tesco) less than five minutes’ walk.

If you venture a little further, you’ll be in the heart of Leicester, with all the choice of retail, culture and food you’d expect from a vibrant city centre.

Leicester City Football Club's King Power Stadium is a short walk across the river, with the Leicester Tigers' Welford Road stadium just over a mile away. 

Leicester railway station is a two-mile car journey away, perfect for travelling home or visiting other cities. And you can walk there in less than 20 minutes.

CODE Classics: our budget choice near De Montfort University

If you'd like to live at CODE but your budget doesn't allow it, we have a few alternative flats - called our "CODE Classics" available in Rydal Street, Welford Road and other places around Leicester. 

We've including a selection of photos in our gallery, but you can also 
⬇️ download the CODE Classic Brochure

Our online Chat team can also give you advice on the best room. Or give us a call on 0116 233 5678 or email to learn more about these "Classic" properties. 

Please note, these are similar but not the same as the CODE Leicester studio flats – but are a great choice for those who want something really affordable. CODE Classic tenants still get to use the CODE Leicester facilities for FREE, including the gym and communal spaces, as well as attending our events. 

You may also be able to get a resident's parking permit for £25 per year in some CODE properties. You would need to confirm this with Leicester City Council and CODE cannot be held responsible if a permit cannot be obtained.


Your electricity is billed monthly in a CODE Classic property and all rooms come with free wi-fi and there are laundry facilities on site.

Here are the CODE Classic rooms we have available:
