Lovely uni, friendly and feels like home. Going into my 3rd year and feels like I’ve been there 2 minutes! Union is large and there’s always plenty going on. The town is good for food and drink but lacks entertainment like bowling

Loughborough university provides an incredible and inclusive social environment for its students. There are incredibly active welfare associations and lots of clubs and societies to join.

Overall tutors are reliable and helpful. Their active research informs the course and practice which benifits us. The resources we are able to access are satisfactory to accomplish our briefs however it is evident tge school of the arts recieves very little funding to improve equipment and available tools whixh would only better our work. More funding and attention to the school of the arts is necessary to cement it's reputation against other art courses. Moreover there is also a lack of space particularly for graphic design students. Design studios where we have to work are cramped with the group sizes we have whixh means we struggle to make full use of our limited studio hours.

It's available if you need it. But the tutors are beyond helpful in helping you deal with struggles and push you to become better all round bit just in your design field

A large campus with a fantastic union. The facilities are modern and sufficient for many sport activities. Academic facilities also good but could be further expanded in some departments. Atmosphere and community are extremely welcoming and well integrated.

Campus is great, it has everything a student needs but campus shops can be a little pricey plus campus shuttles can take a while after 4pm. Facilities are great however especially the sports ones. Library and gym are awesome. My course was very tough and I think the courses at loughborough in general are very challenging as I've heard from other students. Hopefully it's all worth it though! Students union has a big variety of societies and I'm sure anyone can find one that suits them. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in volunteering or part time work on campus on real projects that you're genuinely interested in and can be used to not only enhance your university experience but also to develop your skill set and cv strength. Careers services has been amazing, they provide a wide range of workshops to do with job applications, essay writing, interview prep etc. They also provide quick advice or long consultations to help you in your next chapter in life. There is a friendly and helpful environment within the organisation and this helps especially at stressful times as a student. Some cons about the uni (to keep it fair) is that the teaching can sometimes be sub-par and more support is needed to the students from some of the teachers. Also, being a highly ranked sports uni, they take great pride in being unbeaten bucs champions for nearly 40 years but being on the basketball team, I can tell anyone that there's a dark side. Sports schedules can sometimes be demanding which is good and expected but that needs to be accompanied with more student support, which I feel Loughborough lacks in. Also there is a very "win win win" approach and unfortunately this comes at the expense of athlete development. Barely any emphasis on increasing athlete potential as far as my basketball experiences tell me and it's almost all about "win for us so we can stay on top". It doesnt make it any better that players had to pay 200£ per season after being selected on the team where we didn't even get to keep our kit (we had to give them back after every game) plus some away games on weekends we had to chip in the transport costs (I mean, really). It was also compulsory for us to buy a full lboro sport tracksuit. I came to Loughborough partly for the sports and I was quite disappointed with it. I know several other players on my team who felt a similar way. In fact, In my second season 4 out of the 5 starting five suspended themselves for a period of time due to the increasing work demands and this links to my previous point about the lack of student support for the student athletes. Compare this to the big American universities who also pride themselves in sporting excellence, only except they have whole departments dedicated to student athlete academic support. I know many players come to Loughborough after being one of the best players in their region and even in the country, expecting to come to Loughborough as a stepping stone to reach professional status all whilst gaining a degree at the same time. That's a beautiful aspiration but unfortunately many come out disappointed and I blame this on lack of support and lack of player development. All in All, loughborough university has been a great experience in every single way through the highs and the lows and it is really an amazing university but if they spent more time on developing people (like an oxbridge approach, with a little more lboro flavour) rather than just maintaining ranking status, I think they could be one of the best in the country.

First year as a commuting student has been a successful one. Mostly due to the support and online resources offered by all modules.

The campus is lively, the lecture halls are modern and the people are great. Freshers week was a must and there were lots of fun activities to take part in. The halls have inter hall competition which are fun such as football or tennis which is always good for your health, the gyms are exceptional and healthy, the shop to buy food can be overpriced but only if you buy expensive stuff.

I am a student livening at home, and therefore one of the most positive things for me about loughborough is the availability of support. For example module work is always available on the learn portal which is useful when travelling to lectures is difficult.

Campus is huge but over-rated. For some reason Loughborough is voted best for student experience, I believe this to be a fix, the Union is nothing impressive and the town dead on a majority. Most other universities in big cities have a much better student experience.

The university is in a good location, quiet and mostly students in the middle of Loughborough. Great peers, not so great teaching quality...

Fun experience, fun pubs. A place with a bit of everything. Great for sports and a lot of drinking. Kelso does these really nice discounted cocktails on the Reverb event night.
