Loughborough Students' Union

Right at the very heart of our award-winning student experience sits Loughborough Students’ Union (LSU). Owned and run entirely by our students, the Union continues to ensure that life at Loughborough remains vibrant, rewarding and brimming with opportunity. By the time you graduate, you’ll be moving on with so much more than just a degree.

A constant hive of activity, by day the Union building is a busy meeting place and coffee bar complete with a shop, a Chinese restaurant, a hairdresser, a gastropub, an optician, a dentist, a taxi rank, a pharmacy and a sports massage therapist. At night, it transforms into a 4,000 capacity nightclub with three separate rooms, each playing a variety of music and hosting events across the week.

Unforgettable times

Loughborough Students’ Union is all about giving you opportunities that you will literally never forget.It could be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and raising money for RAG (Raise and Give), scoring a goal for your hockey club, learning to belly dance on a Wednesday afternoon or dressing up in fancy dress for the Friday night out with friends from your hall. The possibilities are endless and Loughborough is all about enabling you to do more.

With over 150 clubs and societies to get involved in outside of your studies, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From breakdancing and yoga to snowsports and singing, there literally is something for everyone – not to mention countless other once-in-a-lifetime opportunities you can take part in.

By your side

Ultimately, the role of the Students’ Union is to ensure that Loughborough remains the very best place to be a student. Whether we’re working to enhance your experience, ensure your personal development or just support you, students are at the heart of everything we do.

The Welfare and Diversity section of the Union represents every student during their time here. From promoting positive health and wellbeing to providing under-represented individuals with a voice, we look out for every single one of our students.
