Leicester Studio Flats Perfect for Students

Legend has it that when you see five fried chicken shops on one block, you know you’ve arrived in the historic city of Leicester. It is also rumoured to have more traffic lights than any other city in the UK. This means you’re better off exploring it on foot than on wheels. And finally, you can’t go twenty yards in this lovely town without being within spitting distance of a Leicester student accommodation. This last one is neither rumour nor legend – it’s absolutely true! Unilodgers has over 40 student houses in Leicester, with Leicester studio flats being high in demand and plentiful in supply!
