Student Life in Loughborough

Loughborough itself is a lively market town that is really geared towards its student population. It has a vibrant nightlife and plenty of reasonably-priced places to eat and socialise with friends, including a brand new Cineworld complex opened in summer 2016. If you’re looking to head further afield, its convenient Midlands location means that London is reachable by direct train in less than 1.5 hours and you can be in Nottingham, Leicester or Derby within 30 minutes. We are also only 15 minutes from East Midlands Airport so international travel couldn’t be easier.

Travel information


Loughborough is at the heart of England in Leicestershire and is well served by road, rail and air. Loughborough railway station is a mere 10 minutes away from campus with regular bus services operating between the two locations every ten minutes during term times. Regular Intercity services operate between Loughborough and other main line towns including daily trains to and from London St Pancras International only 90 minutes away. There is a free shuttle bus that runs across campus every few minutes which is free to use during term time, too.
