Loughborough University


What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"It's small so you get bored quite easily and end up with not a lot to do."
"Every sport is competitive and there are minimal social teams."
"Loughborough town is not the most exciting place, but it's close enough to Nottingham that it doesn't really matter."
"No free printing on campus."
"In quite a small town compared to where I live. Only one library which becomes very full during exam season."
"Loughborough town is grim. Very different university experience to other universities such as Nottingham. The ratio of boys to girls is very uneven."
"The town itself is not the best for culture. However, there is so much on at the university that it doesn't matter. Plus, Leicester and Nottingham are very close."
"Big competitive culture that not everyone likes."
"There aren't many attractions off campus like restaurants or mainstream shops."
"The night life and town are a bit dull compared to other city universities. A lot of money is invested in sport, I would personally like to see more money invested in other areas such as in the science community."
