Living on campus is a unique opportunity and you'll get to enjoy hall life, settle in quickly and have everything you need close by. We offer 15 undergraduate halls on (or very close to) the campus for you to choose from, with options to suit your budget and catering preference. Seven of these are catered, eight are self-catered.
There’s never a shortage of things to get involved in. From nights out at the Union to nights in with your flatmates, a film and a pizza, your free time will be anything but dull. You’ll be spoilt for choice at Loughborough’s range of clubs, societies and events, all of which have unique social calendars of their own and offer endless opportunities to make lifelong friends.

There’s so much going on around campus that you don’t actually need to leave it if you don’t want to. However, if you do fancy a change of scenery then the town centre is within walking distance.

There you’ll find a variety of high street shops, bars, clubs and pubs to keep you entertained off-campus, as well as the brand new Cineworld cinema and a park with a museum. Loughborough Town Hall also hosts a regular programme of shows and comedy evenings.

A car is not necessary in Loughborough – the University has convenient shuttle buses which operate across the campus and on into town and the railway station every 20 minutes. Students with disabilities or, in exceptional circumstances, those with other needs, are able to bring vehicles onto campus.

The University actively seeks to protect and improve the environment as far as practicable – this includes recycling, reducing waste, conserving energy and using renewable sources, and protecting wildlife on campus.
Our green outlook is also an integral part of our teaching, as all of our schools/departments run degree courses that include sustainability related modules.
