Students: Make sure you complete the census

All students should complete the census for their university residence, even if you're not in Loughborough at the moment.

Students are counted at both their term-time address and their home address, and so you will be responsible for completing the census for your term-time address.

If you are currently staying in your student house, you will receive a letter with an access code which you can use to fill out the form online.

Please note all students living in halls of residence will be required to pick up their letter from the University Mailroom located in the Herbert Manzoni Building. You should have received an email to confirm this. Please note you must collect it yourself, and more information on mailroom opening times can be found here.

If you are not currently at your term-time address, you will need to request a new access code which can be done here.

It is very important that you complete the census; by doing so you will be helping to ensure that the student community gets the services it needs, such as university campus bus links, bicycle lanes and jobs.

You must complete the census by law, as you could be fined up to £1,000 if you do not fill it in.

If you are an international student, you should still be included in the census if:

  • You intend to or have been studying in the UK for at least three months
  • You are not currently in the UK but attended in person in the Autumn 2020 term or Winter 2021 term and still have a formal agreement to stay at your term-time accommodation.

Census day is Sunday 21 March, however you have until 30 April to complete it. For more information, please visit the dedicated webpage.
