Most helpful review

Despite COVID-19, this University has been fantastic and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here! The support this year has been excellent and I have always known that I have people looking out for my wellbeing; when we were isolating, we had constant food deliveries and staff checking we were okay. Whilst teaching was online, my lecturers tried their best to engage and make learning as fun as possible. The campus is great and is undoubtedly the BIGGEST selling point - lots of green spaces and a real community. THank you Loughborough!

Hello, glad to hear that you are enjoying campus life. For things to do outside of campus you could check out Event Brite as often there are events advertised on there. There is also the Town Hall for shows/concerts. If there is nothing local that interests you then Loughborough has great transport links to Nottingham and Leicester - there are always things happening in the cities!

It’s a friendly environment with lots to offer. Especially if you play sports. The societies are way too many in number. The halls are great and so is the safety and security. It’s a wonderful experience and it’s like a town in itself.

As someone who isn't particularly involved in sport. I have found that Loughborough has a lot to offer overall.

If you like some challenge and healthy competition and these are skills top firms are really looking into these days in potential clients, then I would say Loughborough University is meant for you !

Thanks so much for the positive feedback. We are very proud that Loughborough University is consistently ranked in the top 10 universities on UK league tables - and has been named as the best university in the world for sports related subjects for five years running!

A big part of the camaraderie extends from the sporting team spirit that many students are proud to be a part of. Having the largest campus in the UK means you get the benefits of socialising and organised classes as well as distinct nights out and trips to town.

Not a huge amount of facilities on campus, the student union offers a small number of societies with most of the existing ones only being for specific nationalities. The on-campus internet is very unreliable and often mobile data is just better and easier to make use of. Student Union events and services aren't too bad but are often just very crowded and somewhat misleading in description.

Sorry to hear you’re finding it difficult to find things of interest at the Student’s Union. It’s worth exploring a little further as there are actually over 100 societies to join. There’s the Surf Club, the Video Game Society, Quidditch, LSU Sing!, Belly Dancing, to name a few… plus there are country-specific and religious societies that are open to anyone. You can even see if there are any ‘Give it a Go’ sessions so you can try the society out before becoming a member. If you can’t find one you like you can start your own with the SU’s support. On top of the societies, there are 58 sports clubs ranging from American Football through to Wheelchair Basketball.

I have only seen the campus for about 2 months -during Covid-19 - so I haven’t seen much. But in general, the campus looks amazing. I must complain about the level cleaning in various facilities however. For example, accommodations reserved for prospective students (at least in my personal experience), and the library… Filthy places…

Overall it's not bad. The careers network is non-existent, they will give you a few links but won't help as much as I wish they did. The campus is huge and absolutely beautiful. There are lots of sports you can try out, very expensive tho. Accommodations are good based on in which one you live, you could be in CP or end up in bad places such as Telford. The lectures are really good.

Great to hear you enjoyed your overall experience at Loughborough, both in and out of the classroom. Sorry that you didn’t get the experience you hoped for from the Careers Network. Even as a graduate you can still access services. This includes online advice, individual appointments, presentations and careers events. Might be worth giving them a second chance 😊 For information, advice and support on a whole range of careers topics, access to our online tools, and to find out more about the services and events, you can access the Careers Network online - https://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/careers/students-and-graduates/

Despite COVID-19, this University has been fantastic and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here! The support this year has been excellent and I have always known that I have people looking out for my wellbeing; when we were isolating, we had constant food deliveries and staff checking we were okay. Whilst teaching was online, my lecturers tried their best to engage and make learning as fun as possible. The campus is great and is undoubtedly the BIGGEST selling point - lots of green spaces and a real community. THank you Loughborough!

The most supportive, friendly and student focused environment. Engaging lectures, inspiring students and insane opportunities. I really can’t fault lboro’s handling of the pandemic - refunded all accommodation fees for students that wanted to stay home, provided as many in person lectures as they possibly could, provided freshly cooked meals and a laundry service for isolating students. By far the only university that is worth the £9k tuition fees!

I couldn't recommend Loughborough University more, it was my dream uni and it hasn't disappointed. Halls are brilliant, the community in each hall is amazing, you really do become a little family. I stayed in halls for 2 years, which was such a great decision but the choices in town are also great! The student support has been brilliant and the university have been so accommodating with my personal circumstances! I was apprehensive coming to Loughborough as im not massively into sports, but love watching them, but I haven't found that an issue at all! My lifestyle is sport for complete beginners and is completely free! Honestly couldn't recommend more! Great course, great people, great university!

Think they’ve handled covid really well and can’t wait to complete next year with no restrictions so I can experience the full Loughborough Union experience

Lovely family feel of community on campus. Opportunities for every type of student. A very open and encouraging environment for learning and self development. Top Tip: Make sure to choose your accommodation ASAP, self-catered ensuite is the most popular and can go within minutes!

The facilities available to students on campus create a great interactive learning environment, even with social distancing the university was able to provide good practical experiences when possible.

The sports clubs, sports facilities and the STEM lab are the best thing about the university. They offer you so many opportunities to try out new sports and join clubs. It’s great.

Good facilities and the students are friendly… however there is a lack of support and care for students who are struggling due to the time that we live in.

Loughborough creates the perfect balance between work and rest. It allows for you to not only get a good degree at a top10 university but also explore and develop extra-curriculars which are just as important as the degree.

Loved it my first 2 years (2017-2019) then during COVID during 2020-2021 year, absolutely awful, given less academic help because “we should be used to it by now”, I’d been on placement so struggled and also just because it wasn’t such a shock didn’t mean it was normal. Mental health services backed up for months

As someone who isn’t much of a party goer or drinker or late night owl- I was surprised to find that I could still have so much fun with people just like me. A diverse and colourful institution.

Amazing sports facilities and opportunities, allowing for you to meet loads of new people. Hall events frequently happening means you and your flat can interact with other halls as well. The union has great clubbing. Beautiful campus and all around facilities too
