About the University

Student experience

We listen to our students

In addition to academic excellence, our renowned student experience, award winning Students’ Union, sports clubs, societies and community spirit play a big part in why our students are so passionate and proud to be here.

We are committed to providing students with every opportunity to go above and beyond and reach their potential – professionally, academically and socially.

All six of our Times Higher Awards relate to our student experience - we believe there is no better place in the UK to be.

The Students’ Union

Our Students’ Union plays a key part in creating the Loughborough student experience. It is one of the only Unions in the UK to be owned and managed by the students for the students. It offers a variety of support services, more than 100 clubs and societies and a packed programme of social events.

The fundraising arm of the Students’ Union, Loughborough Rag, is the most successful student fundraising organisation in the country. In 2013-14 it raised £1,411,510 for local and national charities, breaking its own national record.
