Arts and entertainment
We are committed to providing our students with every opportunity to achieve their full potential – professionally, intellectually and socially. The Students’ Union and Loughborough University Arts offer plenty of ways to get involved and unwind after a busy day.
The Students’ Union
Loughborough Students’ Union is the driving force behind the UK’s best student experience. Loughborough students are at the heart of everything we do, leading and running activities, providing the opportunity to experience new challenges and hosting outstanding entertainments and events. It’s all part of having the time of your life.
Whenever decisions are being made that affect you, especially about your education, we are always on your side influencing the right people in the right way. Having a good degree from a prestigious university is just one step to launching a great career.
Getting involved with the Union makes you so much more than your course.
The five activity sections of Loughborough Students’ Union are national leaders in their sectors and have won many awards over the years: Rag charity fundraising, community Action volunteering, the Media centre, the Athletic Union and our Societies. They offer you unforgettable experiences that will stay with you for life.
