10 ways we’ve improved student life at Loughborough

Having a great student experience is key to our success at Loughborough. We’re always investing into campus and listening to feedback to improve the things you think are important. Here are 10 ways we improved your student life last year.






Busy Loughborough Bees

At the Fruit Routes summer event I was able to visit the bees on campus. Equipped with protective clothing and gloves I was standing in the middle of hundreds of bees swarming out of their beehive.






Celebrating #WorldPhysicalActivityDay at Loughborough

#WorldPhysicalActivityDay has been trending on Twitter today, 6 April. Sometimes this feels like every day on our campus, but to celebrate we’ve brought together some of our favourite photos of both physical activity and sports facilities on campus. This aerial photo of campus shows just a small fraction of the sporting facilities available to our students. […]






The Great British Bake Off comes to Loughborough

Today saw the annual “Great Geography Charity Bake Off” with a special guest judge – Howard Middleton. You may remember Howard from series 4 of the Great British Bake Off!






A Christmas memo from us!

The Christmas holidays are upon us, and many of our students have left Loughborough and headed home for 3 weeks of rest, relaxation, and perhaps even some revision! Over the course of this Christmas holiday the university winds down and there are a number of changes to opening times and processes across campus.






A Day in the Life of a …Gardener

With over 440 acres to maintain, 8,000 trees, 20 flower beds, 16 grass pitches and 10 artificial facilities – the grounds and maintenance team have the daunting task of making every inch of Loughborough campus look as good as possible.






International Day 2015

Coming soon to LSU – International Day 2015. Last year saw students representing around 40 different countries set up shop in the union, sharing their traditions, food, music and culture. Get a feel for the day with last year’s video.






A night at the Fireworks Extravaganza

The annual Loughborough Students’ Rag Fireworks Extravaganza is a huge event in Loughborough. Arguably the best public fireworks display in the town. The evening attracts thousands of people, including our students, staff and the local community, all to our campus. As an added bonus, we raise lots of money for charity!
