Hall Facilities

To provide our award-winning student experience, we provide a number of facilities within our hall to make your time at Loughborough as enjoyable as possible. These sections will give you a flavour of what you can expect in your halls.

Common Rooms

Each hall has its own hall common room - a space to socialise, relax and meet other students from your hall. The facilities in each common room will vary from hall to hall and are dependent on your hall committee. Use of common rooms is governed by a Code of Conduct, administered by the Hall Warden.

Recycling

What to do with your waste

  • Recycling bins are supplied for your recycling. You should put plastics, cans, cartons (‘tetra-packs’), cardboard, paper, foil and empty aerosols in these recycling bins.
  • Please rinse tins and cans first and don’t contaminate with food, glass or unrecyclable items! You have a plastic bucket in your kitchens for glass. You should rinse glass out before placing it in the plastic bucket provided and empty it at your nearest glass bank regularly. Please don’t put broken glass in here; there is a separate box supplied for this.
  • If you have a food waste caddy in the kitchen please use this for food waste but close the lid after use. Empty it regularly at your nearest bin compound and please do not put packaging, liquids or excessive oils in this caddy.
  • You also have a general waste bin; this is for everything that can’t be recycled. You are required to recycle whilst living in our halls of residence.

As part of the Green League we’ll be carrying out spot checks on a regular basis. If your flat is randomly selected for a check and your recycling is up to scratch, you will be in with a chance of winning a small gift or prize.
