About the University
Based in the heart of the UK, Loughborough University is one of the country’s leading universities.
With a superb 438 acre single-site campus in Loughborough, and a dedicated postgraduate campus in London, we offer great facilities for students, staff and visitors to the University.
We are renowned for our life-changing student experience, which puts our students at the heart of what we do; giving them the opportunities they need to achieve their full potential. In 2016 we were voted first in the Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey.
Our cutting edge research has been acknowledged numerous times at the highest level, with no less than seven Queen’s Anniversary Prizes. The global importance of our work has also made us a top ten university in England for research intensity.
Our reputation as the number one university for sport is unrivalled. The University is home to the country’s largest concentration of world-class sports facilities, and has been named British Universities and Colleges Sport Champions for 36 years in a row.
Our Students' Union is one of the very best in the country and is one of the only unions to be owned and managed by students.
One thing that can’t be measured by accolades and achievements, but which all associated with Loughborough will agree is the thing they love the most about Loughborough – the sense of community. With over 16,000 students and 3,000 members of staff on our Loughborough campus alone, we have a pretty big community; but it’s a friendly and welcoming one all the same.
