The superb 440 acre campus is the University’s most glorious asset, offering great facilities for every aspect of student life, with plenty of open space, gardens and sports areas, interspersed with academic buildings and student accommodation.
The campus itself has a lively atmosphere with over 20,000 students and staff from over 100 different countries. There is a strong sense of community and a real buzz, just what you would expect from a university that continues to be popular in national and international student polls.
The University has also been rated for excellence and achieved the maximum 5* overall in the QS Stars University Ratings 2014. Loughborough was also awarded five stars for Facilities.
Loughborough Students’ Union is the on-campus focus of social life and much more besides. Its numerous societies and sports clubs, plus nightly entertainment will ensure that your free time will be anything but dull.
We have a wide variety of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars across the campus, with food from takeaway snacks to high-class restaurants. There are lots of places to sit outdoors and study, talk with friends, or just relax.
A car is not necessary in Loughborough – the University has convenient shuttle buses which operate across the campus and on into town and the railway station every 20 minutes. Students with disabilities or, in exceptional circumstances, those with other needs, are able to bring vehicles onto campus.
The University actively seeks to protect and improve the environment as far as practicable – this includes recycling, reducing waste, conserving energy and using renewable sources, and protecting wildlife on campus.
Our green outlook is also an integral part of our teaching, as all of our schools/departments run degree courses that include sustainability related modules.
