Loughborough Doctoral College


Graduate House

Graduate House provides social space and workspace for postgraduate taught and research students, as well as for mature undergraduate students studying at the University.

Located in the heart of Campus, Graduate House is the hub of Loughborough Doctoral College activities.

The collective vision for the building was to create a space that is functional and practical, as well as attractive and conducive to learning and socialising.

The building comprises the Loughborough Doctoral College's offices and training room, and the ‘Graduate Hub’. Located in the first floor of the building, the Graduate Hub includes individual and group workspace, kitchen facilities and a coffee lounge area for the exclusive use of postgraduate students. The name ‘Graduate Hub’ was decided by an on-line vote by post-graduate students and was seen as reflecting the role that the space will play in bringing together the University’s postgraduate community.
