CODE Leicester: a city based option
We’re a short walk from Leicester City Centre and offer a city-based option for University of Leicester students.
Our one-bedroom studio flats are conveniently located just off the popular Narborough Road/Braunstone Gate - which makes us a great student accommodation choice for those who like to be close to the action!
But we also benefit from 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.
Travelling to University of Leicester
The easiest way to get to the University of Leicester is by bike. The good news is we have plenty of bike storage for you on site and your cycle is covered by our contents insurance!
Don't have your own bike? Not a problem, we have ones you can hire for free!
We are around a 30 minute walk from the campus/Victoria Park, or you can catch a bus part of the way, making the journey just over 20 minutes.
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’ (Budgens) 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.

Our online Chat team can also give you advice on the best room. Or give us a call on 0116 233 5678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
