Very underrated, a brilliant alternative to the much loved Claudia Parsons. By far the biggest rooms on campus, ensuites and double beds. Closer to the academic and sport hubs on campus than accommodation in the village. Choose a standard double ensuite for white walls :) it’s only the deluxe that have the ugly coloured walls!

Love the location and the people. Rooms are big and kitchens spacious however it is far too expensive as things often break or are unreliable.

Didn’t initially want Butler Court but so glad I got put there, made the best friends. The rooms are by far the biggest on campus on only 3 share a kitchen which is great. Was quite far away from my lectures being in west park but the bus was easy to use and the walk was nice to get fresh air. It’s a bit of a quieter hall as it is smaller than most but you make your own parties and is a great community feel.

Most underrated hall on campus!!! The biggest rooms you will ever find in halls! Butler has such a community spirit and know how to sesh. It may be one of the smaller halls on campus but that just means you get to know more people in your hall. The common room is also one of the biggest on campus. It’s perfect location, closest hall to town, powerbase and exam hall + one of the closest to the union, athletics track, lecture halls, parcels building and swimming centre

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.

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.

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

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!

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!
