Outstanding campus

Our superb campus is one of our most glorious assets. It’s the size of over 7,000 tennis courts or 250 UEFA champions league football pitches. Wherever you go you can’t fail to see our sporting heritage but we are so much more. We are proud of our welcoming and friendly home.

We are the largest green campus in the UK and we have many unusual gems such as two substantial areas of heritage woodland and spaces to grow plants and vegetables. There are beautiful gardens, we keep bees and produce our own honey and there is our ‘fruit route’ where staff and students can walk collecting delicious fruit to eat and get to know new people at the same time.
Everything you need is on campus or very close by, from our medical centre to our student support services which include disability support, halls, bars, a bank, pharmacy and convenience stores.

1. It's large!

Our campus is 440 acres (in fact you could fit over 7,000 tennis courts in it). There are free buses every few minutes to take you across campus if you don't want to walk or cycle.

2. Not too far to class...

We have four self-catered halls of residence available to our postgraduate students.

3. Great facilities on your doorstep

We have a wide range of facilities that are open to students, staff, visitors and the local community. If it's work, rest or play we think you'll find what you're looking - take a virtual tour.


In 2015 Loughborough opened a second campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Loughborough University London has diversified and expanded the high quality education offered to both postgraduate students and those looking to advance their professional development.

Green campus

Our campus is not only green to look at, it is also green in the environmental sense: easily negotiated on foot, and with miles of cycle paths around campus and town as well as plenty of lockable storage areas. A car is not necessary in Loughborough – the University has convenient shuttle buses which operate across the campus and on into town and the railway station every 20 minutes. Students with disabilities or, in exceptional circumstances, those with other needs, are able to bring vehicles onto campus.

The University actively seeks to protect and improve the environment as far as practicable – this includes recycling, reducing waste, conserving energy and using renewable sources, and protecting wildlife on campus. Our green outlook is also an integral part of our teaching, as many of our schools/departments run degree courses that include sustainability related modules.
