Mature student accommodation Leicester
Being a student has often been associated with young school leavers. Those about to experience the first time away from home after A-Levels, the chance to embrace their individuality and discover who they really are. However, you might be surprised to hear that a high level of mature students are taking up university courses year on year too.
If you’re aged over 21 and about to embark on a course at university, then the Leicester universities certainly make a point of welcoming their mature students with open arms. And, if you’re looking for mature student accommodation, Leicester city centre has some great places to choose from to live.
If it’s the first time away from home, then university can feel like a time to kick back and let loose – certainly in the first year anyway. But, if your reasons for returning to study later in life are more about career progression, learning new skills and being around people your own age while you do it, then the wild partying of the younger student population might not be for you.

This means that if you’re put off by the thought of living in halls, then there’s more chance of studying in peace and feeling comfortable around people of a similar age and mind set.
