Facilities

We have a number of facilities on campus which can be used for rehearsals, performances, workshops and exhibitions.

Find out more about these spaces below or by selecting the arts filter on the campus map. Some of these spaces can be booked by groups of students and local community groups.

For Loughborough London students, we’ve produced an arts map and guide to the area surrounding our campus at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. You can pick up a copy of the arts map on campus or download it below.
