University open days

Interested in finding out more about Loughborough University? Nothing beats exploring our stunning campus, meeting current students and chatting to inspirational academics at an open day.

Open Days: update

As the UK emerges from the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic our team have been working hard to create an open day experience that keeps everyone safe whilst still giving you an opportunity to discover everything you need to know about life as a student here at Loughborough.

We have decided to take a slightly different approach than normal to our open days this year as everyone readjusts to ‘normal’ life once more. We will be offering a combination of virtual activity - where you will get a chance to meet our academic and subject ambassadors, chat to staff from our accommodation team, student support services and the Students’ Union from the comfort of your home – alongside an opportunity to visit us in-person at one of our experience events where you will get to see our beautiful campus for yourself.

Join us for a Virtual Open Day!

We will be hosting our Virtual Open Day on Saturday 30 October 2021 between 10:00 - 16:00. This event is the perfect opportunity to discover more about the course you are interested in studying at university, plus between 11:00 - 14:00, you can:

  • Chat live to academics and subject ambassadors
  • Explore our accommodation options and get all your questions answered by our expert team
  • Learn more about our outstanding support services that will be available to you as a Loughborough students
  • Get involved in our arts programme and the Students' Union 

In addition to all of this, you will be invited to join us for our popular live Student Q&A and hear first-hand what our students have to say about their experiences at Loughborough University.

There will be plenty for you and your family to explore at your own pace, with virtual tours, pre-recorded video content and information hubs available all day.

Experience our campus for yourself

We have created a new Experience Days programme of events that are scheduled to run throughout the summer and into autumn (more dates to be released soon), offering you the opportunity to visit us in person so you can really picture yourself here as a student.

These events won’t be course focused so we recommend you book on to the Virtual Open Day above to get all the information you need about your course. However, you will be able to see an example of one of our Halls of Residence and have a sneak-peek at some of our incredible facilities. Discover what makes Loughborough such a special place to be by chatting to our team of our current students who will be on hand to answer all your questions about living and studying in Loughborough.
