Hall Sport (IMS)

Also called Intra-Mural sport (IMS), is a free programme open to every Loughborough University student. It’s a fantastic way to make friends and compete in a range of diverse and inclusive sports that will ensure you get the most out of your hall experience.

How it works

IMS is comprised of leagues and a series of One Day Events. Every week there are over 90 league fixtures and over the course of each year we host 20 One Day Events, ranging from Handball, Dodgeball, Boccia, and Rowing.

Each Hall of Residence will enter a team into every league and One Day Event across the year. Points are awarded based on the grading of the sport and the position the hall finishes, with the hall that has the most points at the end of the year is crowned the overall winner at the IMS presentation evening. 

N.B. If you are injured through participating in IMS please be aware that there are certain Terms and Conditions regarding when and why you may be able to claim. If you are considering making a claim please familiarise yourself with these by requesting the information from your sport secs who have access to the policy and claim guidance. 

Get involved

The programme is not just for first year students as any student can affiliate to a hall to participate in IMS. This year long battle between halls culminates with the IMS Awards where the University’s best kept secret, the winners of IMS, finally gets revealed.
