Child Minding and Childcare

If you have a child or are responsible for a child, you might need support with childcare whilst studying at Loughborough. 

How can the University Support you?

Our Loughborough Campus has an on-site nursery available to support those with young children. More information is available here. 

For those who are postgraduates, specific Student accommodation is available for young families, for more information about this please contact the Student Accommodation Centre (SAC).  

What to do next?


There is a registered day nursery on campus which is consistently rated by Ofsted as ‘Good’. Places at the on-campus nursery are highly sought after, so early enquiries are recommended. You can apply for a nursery place before your course has been confirmed and you are under no obligation to take up a place if your plans change (one month’s notice of cancellation is required). Other local nurseries are also available.

Financial Advice and Support

For more advice and funding support, please visit the student finance pages of the UK Government website. 


If you are looking for appropriate housing, please contact our Student Accommodation Centre.
