Campus tours are the perfect opportunity to see our beautiful campus and find out more about what life is like here at Loughborough.

What to expect

Each tour begins with a short welcome talk, so that you can hear a little more about what Loughborough University has to offer. The staff member leading the session will be more than happy to answer any questions or queries that you might have about applying to, or studying at Loughborough. After the talk, you’ll be divided into groups to look round the campus. The tours will be on foot and will take approximately 60 minutes – don’t forget to wear comfy shoes!

The talk will not include information on specific subject areas and it will not be possible to give tours of our academic departments at this time. Further information about our undergraduate courses can be found online
