We understand that loved ones come first, and we won’t put you under any pressure to make a decision about leaving a gift in your Will.

Some people choose to let us know that they have remembered the University in their Will. Where this is the case, a person may have a specific cause in mind, or wish to have a conversation about where their kind donation will go to when it is received.

We respect your privacy and we recognise that your Will is personal. You don’t have to tell us if you are leaving a gift to Loughborough, and you can change your mind at any time. If you choose to let us know, we will keep this information confidential. We’ll also be able to keep you up-to-date with plans and ambitions for the future.

Garden of Remembrance

Loughborough University has set aside a walled garden near the Edward Herbert Building as a place where people who have passed away can be remembered. It has been developed as a Garden of Remembrance with the support of the University, students, and staff and with donations from alumni and friends.

It has been designed to offer a peaceful and reflective atmosphere. There are benches to allow people to sit and remember. You can also have a plaque in memory of a loved one.

If you wish to make a donation in support of the upkeep of the Garden of Remembrance, you can do so through our donation form, and you can make a donation in memory of a loved one, too.
