Health and welfare
Loughborough University has a strong tradition of looking after its students. We are able to deliver much of this through a number of guidance and wellbeing support sections.
Counselling and Disability Service
We are committed to ensuring disabled students receive the support they need to manage a range of conditions alongside their academic studies.
Information, advice and guidance is offered to students with specific learning differences (eg dyslexia), emotional or mental health difficulties (eg anxiety), long-term health conditions (eg chronic fatigue syndrome), sensory impairments, autistic spectrum conditions (eg Asperger’s Syndrome), and physical disabilities.
We recognise that choosing to go to university involves significant life changes – for some students this requires extra preparation and consideration. The University therefore encourages you to share information about any disability on your UCAS application.
There is help available on campus for students applying to their funding body or social services department for the support they require due to their disability, long-term health condition or mental health difficulties viavia an accredited DSA QAG (Disabled Student Allowance Quality Assurance Group) Assessment Centre.
Please also enquire about any wellbeing support and advice available within your school.
Centre for Faith and Spirituality
The Centre includes a chapel, prayer room, quiet room, library and faith rooms used by student faith groups and individuals. There are Chaplains from different faiths and denominations to give support to all, irrespective of your beliefs, whether pastorally, spiritually or practically.
If you find yourself a little under the weather whilst you’re here, don’t worry. The University Medical Centre is situated in the centre of campus, close to the main student accommodation village – you can register for free and book a GP or nurse appointment. The pharmacy is also located nearby in the Union building – we’ll have you feeling better in no time.
An inclusive community
We’re lucky to have a campus community made up of so many different backgrounds and experiences. It is our firm belief that a diverse student body enables a richer learning experience for everybody.
