Facilities are outstanding and the university has a great community feel. Lots of societies to choose from but some are more active than others. Union nights could be improved.

Nightlife and town is not the best but that is nothing to do with the uni. Campus and the uni itself is great (apart from them closing down the gymnastics centre).

Best - the campus and facilities are incredible. Worst - how they have managed changing exams from online to in person mid year.

The student support was a huge factor in me choosing Loughborough. The campus and hall community offers so much and creates a competitive but fun environment. There’s plenty on each week in terms of sports, society events, welfare events, volunteering and all types of socialising! However, clubbing (other than the Union) has lots of room for improvement and so does the town - this doesn’t bother me so much though because I enjoy the Union and I’m not huge on shopping. Also, the only food shop place on campus is Spar which is tiny for the number of students, not good quality food and expensive.

It would be improved if the union hadn’t removed one of the rooms from its nights out. They now heavily monitor the number of people in that room, Cogs, and often it feels empty, whereas people can come and go as they please with the other rooms.

Loughborough has an amazing campus with such a lovely feel and great facilities. However the university itself is lacking in student support. We don’t get offered regular tutor meetings and it’s difficult to arrange one. Lecturers are good with email responses however personal tutors lack a lot of support for students. Although the campus itself is amazing, the location isn’t great. Nottingham and Leicester are close by, but Loughborough itself isn’t good. It would be of interest to students if there was a greater focus on things to do for students, ie, there’s no bowling alley, laser tag, or any decent clubs really! There’s a wide focus on sports and things to do relating to sports, however a lack of things to do for those students who aren’t as sports focused. Lastly, the union would be better if they sorted out the ticketing system, reselling still occurs and people are struggling to even go on nights out due to the fast release of tickets. Change of music would also benefit the union, as it is the exact same each week. The union apart from the nights out is amazing however, great study areas and cafes :)

There are great facilities both for sports and studies. Lots of places to study around campus. Some of the buildings don’t look great from the outside but are nicer inside. Not much to do in Loughborough after a while but can easily get to Nottingham or Leicester

The community spirit and the support from the university is what stands out the most to me. Loughborough University has a lovely and massive campus which is ideal for all day walks and pretty view points! I love my university!!

University rating (4)

The integration and opportunities to mix and work with other courses, really is useful as it prepares you for how it will be in industry. I would rather the library and gym stayed open 24/7 as students do tend to have very random schedules and this would suit me better!

The campus is massive and offers many facilities and the location is ideal. The nightlife in Loughborough is good with the SU being the best but it is a very small town and you see a lot of the same people out. It is only 10 mins away from Leicester and 20 mins from Notts by train so you have the option of a busier city nightlife. One thing to make it better could be more places to study as the library is very far for second years who live in town. It can be busy and hard to find a seat during exam season.
