Optima offers great value student accommodation in Loughborough.

Situated just an 11 minute walk away from Loughborough University, with a convenient shuttle-bus between the town and university which runs every 10-15 minutes, you’re really in the centre of it all at Optima! 

All of the rooms here at Optima come as self-contained en suite studios and, uniquely, some are split-level with mezzanine floors. Our rooms start from a spacious 18m²! Whatever studio size you go for, each one comes with a small double bed, en suite shower room, spacious study zone and generous storage, plus your very own mini-kitchen and dining area. The amenities are all yours unless you want to share – remember, we don’t charge extra for couples!

Our on-site Residents’ Team are always on hand to help you, even if it’s just for a friendly chat (and to collect your post)! Get in touch with them today to find out more!

We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us

Optima’s safe accommodation is full of helpful staff and incredibly modern and comfortable facilities. It includes everything you need and the location is very convenient.

Pijak, Masters Student

This is my second year living at Optima! It offers a really lovely living environment with ample self-contained space where I can focus on my study.

Fong, Masters Student

Optima is a very nice place to live as a PhD student, looking for your own space. Living in the town centre makes a real difference, you’re so close to the uni and the bus to stops right outside our building.
