University’s revamped community website now live

Over the summer, the University has been working hard to update its community website, which provides information on how it seeks to contribute to and support the town and wider region.

The new look website is now live and can be found at: www.lboro.ac.uk/community.

Built with an eye-catching colour scheme in a style that can be viewed on PCs and mobile devices, the site aims to provide a one-stop shop for residents and other interested parties wanting to find out about the University’s community activities.

On the site, you will find sections on:

  • Campus developments: updates on current and planned developments (construction projects) that may be of interest, especially to the University’s nearest neighbours. 
  • Using our campus: information on facilities and amenities on campus that are available for the community to use.
  • Supporting the community: all you need to know about University activities that support the community (including Community Donations Fund, LSU Rag and Action)
  • Community liaison: who the University works with on community matters and key contact information for the local resident groups.
  • Key dates: a calendar of important dates including term times, open days, graduation and other events which may result in large numbers of visitors to the campus.
  • Contacts and complaints: who to contact at the University in the event of issues and how the University deals with incidents and complaints.
  • Managing issues: information on how the University responds to common concerns.  This section includes specific information on the operation of the Student Street Support Scheme.

People can also sign-up to receive the University’s new community e-newsletter through the website. The newsletter will keep people regularly updated on community-related news, projects and activities.

Stakeholder Relations Manager at the University, Alison Barlow said: “There has been a community website for a number of years now but we have been working hard over the summer to give it a new look and update the content. 

"We are also pleased to be introducing a new e-newsletter which will allow us to keep people up-to-date very easily with all the University’s community activities.”
