Private rented accommodation
Sulets – The De Montfort University recommended lettings agency
Sulets is the lettings agency we recommend for our students looking for private rented accommodation in Leicester. It is jointly owned and run by De Montfort and Leicester Students’ Unions.
Sulets offers a fair and transparent service to all students, and there are no agency, registration or reservation fees to pay. It is the only major students letting company in Leicester that does this.
Sulets works with landlords to continuously improve the standard of student accommodation across the city and all its homes are accredited by the local authority Decent and Safe Housing Scheme.
As well as student houses, Sulets manages six purpose-built accommodation sites near DMU:
The Summit, just a five-minute walk from our campus, consists of The Annexe and The Tower, both of which feature contemporary studio apartments (check out the Google Tour). The Tower is one of the tallest buildings in Leicester while the apartments in The Annexe can be dual occupancy.
Upperton Road consists entirely of studio flats with floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows. It has a free on-site gym, a communal area with table tennis and pool table, a large cinema room as well as workspace/meeting rooms. Perfect for students, on the first floor it has a supermarket and is an eight-minute walk from campus.
Eastern Boulevard has a mix of studio apartments with a city view and cluster flats, which are all en-suite. It is a three-minute walk from the campus and residents at Eastern Boulevard are able to use the gym and communal area in Upperton Road.
Regents Court, a 10-minute walk from campus, has four, five and six-bed flats with shared lounge, bathroom and kitchen/communal areas.
Queens Court has studio, two, three, four, five and six-bed apartments with shared lounge, bathroom and kitchen/communal areas. It is right next to campus, just behind our library.
Newarke Street, opposite our Hugh Aston Building, has studio, two, three, four, five and six-bed apartments, which are all en-suite.
