Please comment on the location of your university (city, town, etc), the campus, the facilities, and student accommodation.

2016

"Student housing is decent and fairly priced. Campus has everything you need and a lot of fun in first year."
"The campus is beautiful and it's so nice to have everything in one place, especially as all the facilities are top quality. The student accommodation is lovely and it was nice to be given the opportunity to stay in halls for a second year."
"Location is not ideal for me as it's a small town. The campus is lovely but a bit too spread out and getting into town is a pain. Student accommodation is pretty good and facilities are generally good, although the design is somewhat tasteless in some buildings."
"The location isn't bad, there are various larger cities and towns surrounding Loughborough, meaning you can travel a short distance for a 'night out'. The campus is very large, which I like, and has essentially everything you need on site."
"Great campus with outstanding facilities, especially the gym. Student accommodation is also very good. The town can be a little dull sometimes."
"It's a huge campus filled with sport facilities! If you are looking for the city life it's not the best place but it's a nice, lovely town with a majority student population."
"A nice campus with lots of green space, the facilities are mostly in good condition and buildings are always being improved. The accommodation is generally nice, lots of different halls to choose from. Also the town is nice, missing some of the big shops but Leicester/Derby/Nottingham are all easy to access from Loughborough."
"The town is small, but has everything you need (besides a Nandos... But they're building one!). The campus is large, but there is a bus that is free and goes from one end to the other. It's always tidy, and easy to get around. The facilities are mostly new builds, so are all of high quality. Also, if the building isn't new, it has been recently renovated. The halls are fantastic. Most of them, again, are newly built or have been refurbished. They allow you to have inter-hall rivalry, which establishes a fantastic community and family feel to living in halls. I loved it!"
"As Loughborough is a small town everything is within walking distance. The only difficulty is that the train station is at the opposite end of town to the campus, but there is a frequent bus that runs this route. There is also a large amount of housing available between the university and town which can be ideal in later years when you may want to be equidistant from both."
"The campus is amazing and has everything you need on it: doctors, dentist, hairdressers, shops etc."
