Emergency information

Emergency information

If any person is in serious, immediate danger or there is a crime in progress you should call ‘999’.

You should try to remain calm and follow the instructions given by the operator.

If the emergency is on campus, you should also inform University Security so they can attend and/or assist in directing the emergency services to your location from gatehouse. University Security can be contacted by calling 0800 526966 (or 888 from an internal phone).

Non-emergency information

Contacting the police

Loughborough is covered by Leicestershire Constabulary. If you need to contact them to report a crime you should call their non-emergency number 101.

More information including crime-prevention advice is available on the Leicestershire Constabulary website.

Medical services

For non-emergency medical issues you can contact the NHS.

The University Medical Centre provides a GP service to students and staff and the Loughborough Urgent Care Centre based at Loughborough Hospital provides an out-of-hours service.

A pharmacy is located in the Students’ Union, which can provide prescriptions and other pharmacy services during term times

Incidents effecting exams and assessment

In the event of a serious incident that prevents you attending exams, assessment or teaching sessions, you should contact student enquiries as soon as it’s practicable to do so.
