Loughborough University is honestly unique in its own right. Once you step foot on campus you understand what a great sense of community there is - that’s the main thing about the Loughborough experience. The campus is a great place to work, whilst a lot of the buildings are admittedly quite drab, a lot of money has been spent on developing the inside - the facilities for learning are good. Sport is a key selling point for L’boro, even if you’re not that into sport, there are always opportunities to get involved, and you can book one of the many pitches/courts/rooms available to play with friends in your own time. Some of the student halls on campus are (very) dated and the standard/aesthetic of halls, especially those built earlier on, is quite poor… however this is not a deal breaker - what makes your hall experience is the people, and I guarantee you will overlook any mundane furniture when you meet your flatmates.

Beautiful campus especially during summer, great bus service, just not much to do in the area or town and there is a very bad "lad culture" as there are so many sports boys. Get harassed every night out so had to stop going to the union all together as firefly and revs have better staff and 0 tolerance policy and its easier to stop people when there isn't a sea of people to control as they let wayyy to many people into the union.

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!

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.

Still new to the university but can say it seems technologically advanced, with major installations and size, many facilities and opportunities, more than we can manage, especially in the initial stage.

Did you know that £350m has been invested in our facilities over the last ten years! Keep trying and I’m sure you’ll be able to make use of all the great stuff on campus before your graduate.

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!

I was extremely supported by lecturers and the facilities are incredible, which only made the experience during COVID-19 so much better than expected. Loughborough University has a very warm family feel to it which makes you feel like you're home. Its been an honour to have graduated from such a wonderful university.
