In your studies, you may well encounter mathematics and statistics that is new and challenging to you. Loughborough's award-winning Mathematics Learning Support Centre (MLSC) is here to help you.

Mathematics and statistics support is available to every Loughborough student throughout your university journey, whether on campus or not.

The dedicated and friendly tutors will help build your confidence to tackle the mathematics or statistics content of your modules and can support you with anything from a quick mathematics question, to exam revision, to the statistics in your research projects.

The MLSC is based in Room 0.20 of the Schofield Building and is open as a private study space during term time:

  • 10am-5pm, Monday-Friday (except Wednesdays, which are 10am-4.30pm)
  • Tutors are on hand to answer your questions between 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm daily
  • Remote sessions are available from 11am-1pm and 3pm-5pm daily
