With origins as a Technical Institute first formed in 1909, Loughborough University received its Royal Charter in 1966. Then called ‘Loughborough University of Technology’, it was the country’s first technological university.    

Loughborough has performed well in each of the national league tables published this year; the University leapt to 6th place out of the UK’s 123 universities (Guardian 2018).  Loughborough is proud to have won University of the Year WhatUni 2015 as well as the awards for Best Student Union and Best Accommodation.
