Absolutely brilliant. I have a large ensuite and it is such good value for money. It doesn't look like a lot when you first arrive but it is once you get used to it! It's close to the union on campus and is about a 15 minute walk from the library (which is the furthest you'll go - unless you do engineering or go to hollywell gym, that'll take you about half hour!) but there is a campus bus you can get on for free with your student ID. The staff at butler court are always friendly and if you have a problem with your room they will fix it right away. Best halls at Loughborough university by far, certainly worth the money for the time and space I've spent here!

LOVE it this hall has been my life at uni and where all my friends are from , the hall life is incredible and i am so so sad to be leaving this year , shame half was updated and other half has been left because the old blocks could really do with an update ! shared rooms need to go too, but bring costs down as single rooms are very expensive

Ideal location if your on an elite AU team but, if you want to go to Holywell and/or the library regularly its a bit of a walk.

I can't fault Butler Court. The location is ideal with it being close to the union and near town as well as my lecture halls. The rooms are of a hugely high standard with an ensuite, double bed and two wardrobes. We get our flats cleaned every week which is more than you could ask for and our common room is the best and biggest on campus.

As a Business student, I couldn't have asked for a better self-catered accommodation. It's around 5 minutes away from the main lecture halls, 5 minutes away from the union and 10 minutes away from town centre. When I shared a room, the warden team did an amazing job with paring up with my roommate and flatmates. They clean the kitchen every week and our rooms fortnightly. For 2017/18 they are refurbishing the common room and another block of the court. I've never had problems with the Internet and Design School's lab or John Cooper labs were just 1 minute away if I needed to print something (Art School is across the road for art students). As I know the hall committee personally, I'm sure freshers' week will be one of a kind experience!

Hall life at Loughborough is incredible, you have so many opportunities and there is always something going on. Some of my fondest memories of university are the times I spent with my flatmates in halls.

In a Shared Room for first year, location is perfect, only a few minutes walk away from the union and my lectures. Get on great with my roommate, wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

The best hall in Loughborough in terms of a family feel! The committee members and fresher helpers really make you feel at home- I have had no complaints (except from the wifi) about staying in these halls as a fresher!!

Small community but homely. Everyone knows everyone and looks out for one another. A 250 person family. Huge rooms, cleaners are fab, facilities (tv, sofa etc) are a bonus, ensuite are lovely with nice showers. Commitee are enthusiastic and welcoming, help with anything. Very close to design school and art block, one if the closest to the SU. Laundry and reception is 10 seconds away. Pretty views. Wifi is fine, heating is always fine. Not too modern not too old. Only share a flat with 3-6 people. Would love to spend all 3 years here. Def recommend.

Great hall, amazing people. We're like a family! Only downside is if you're doing engineering it's on the other side of campus!

Although it's one of the smaller less known halls at Loughborough, the family feel you get from it is the most comforting thing when you're leaving home for the first time. Honestly wouldn't want to be in any other hall!

Good time here, but feel as if the deluxe rooms could be made into single rooms to bring more people kn

The disappointment of this accommodation could not be expressed within one review. DON"T GO TO PLATO HOUSE! YOU WILL REGRET IT! - constantly lying to us about money - no WIFI installed for the first 2 months - water stops occasionally. It takes more than 24h to get fixed. this is due to the fact that the water supply is in tanks at the back yard, which need to be refilled when the water stops - no heating for over a month - Horrible mattresses - no common room for already 7 months of the contract but we are paying for it - unauthorised entry in the rooms. Constantly students find their rooms left unlocked - one oven got on fire because of instalment failure. Thank God the girl in that room was only scared but unharmed - very rude and aggressive attitude of the management towards the students over e-mail After all this, they constantly refuse to compensate us for not providing us what we payed for, because I quote: "we are not entitled to compensation".
