Our Campus & Accommodation
Our superb single-site campus is the University’s most glorious asset, measuring 440 acres in total (equivalent to 7,040 tennis courts or 250 football pitches). The campus itself has a lively atmosphere with more than 20,000 students and staff from over 130 different countries. There is a strong sense of community and a real buzz, just what you would expect from a university that continues to be popular in national and international student polls.
Within close walking distance, you will find open spaces, gardens and sports pitches, to academic buildings, Loughborough Students’ Union and our halls of residence. Our campus is a self-contained world of its own and is easily negotiated on foot or bicycle. The shuttle bus that runs across campus every few minutes is handy for getting around too – especially on rainy days!
We’ve also got bars, a nightclub, restaurants, laundrettes, a hairdresser, a medical centre, a pharmacy, a taxi rank, two gyms, shops, cafés, hotels, dining halls and so much more. The most unique thing about Loughborough’s campus is the sense of community spirit that defines it. It’s the perfect environment for our students to make new friends and immerse themselves in different experiences.
We pride ourselves on being a green and sustainable campus. It is home to a large number of different species and plants and provides a wonderful and diverse habitat for wildlife to thrive. The campus is home to 7,500 tress, two ancient woodlands and an apiary where around half a million bees help to produce our famous Loughborough Gold Honey. We try to embed sustainability into everything we do at Loughborough and we work with students and staff across the University to promote awareness with campaigns and activities throughout the year.
