"There are plenty of pubs to pick from, new and old. There are about four or five main clubs to go to, all with their perks. There's not as much choice as in a big town like Nottingham, but Loughborough being a small town means there isn't any fear of being lost and getting home is always easy. There aren't many other activities nearby other than laser tag, golf and plenty of parks."
"There are a variety of pubs and clubs so there is somewhere to go every night of the week. The students' union is one of the best places to go as there is always a good atmosphere and cheap drinks and it's only a five-minute walk to my accommodation."
"The union holds three nights out a week, which are brilliant in my opinion. Everything is in one place, there's different music in every room and the drink's prices are cheap! The town also has nights out but are more expensive and are used more by second years and above who live in town as they are easier to access."
"The nightlife on campus in the students' union is great and argued to be one of the best students' unions with many events throughout the year and guests visiting the union. There are live lounge sessions in the evening and the union later transforms into three different clubs to choose from with a range of music for all tastes and great value drinks. There are also clubs in town for other nights of the week including a well-known vodka revolution that does a student night on a Thursday and other independent clubs on offer such as Echoes (mainly on a Saturday night) and Firefly."
"It's very, very crazy and the students' union can offer a fantastic night out. Drinks are not too overpriced and it's safe."
"The nightlife is okay but lacks diversity. It's all the same kind of feeling and music."
"There are many clubs and pubs available. I think we need more sober social activities such as bowling or mini golf."
"There are more than five clubs available in town and many pubs. There are sometimes events between clubs and offers to students."
"There are pubs and around three nightclubs, not including the SU. The union is great but a bit samey and the town is quite expensive."


"A lot of pubs provide a nice student atmosphere at evenings and weekends. There are a few clubs, which are the destinations to go to later for most people."
"A few clubs in town. Small shopping centre. Small museum. Lots of green space."
"Not really much in comparison to the cities but the town has almost everything that students need."
"There are a few nightclubs you can go to, as well as also a good range of restaurants. There's a gym, a climbing wall, and paintballing nearby."
"A few clubs and restaurants for evenings. A good variety of shops for a town. A heritage railway."
"There are clubs and restaurants to go to. However, it is a town and not a city, so less than you might be used to."
"There are five main clubs: Brooklyn Bar, Echos, Firefly, and Revs. They are all reasonably priced entry (£4.00 each), and are good on different nights of the week. The prices for drinks tend to be more expensive in town than in the union."
"There's a host of bars and pubs as well as a number of clubs, enough for one every day of the week! Each club often hosts a particular night and several times per year events are arranged which provide access to several of the major clubs in one night."
"Not a lot! But it's quaint."
"Take a walk in the Queen's Park. Visit the local market or cinema. There are a few big brands available to go shopping for. Museums (Charnwood and Great Central Railway) and the theatre are also an option."
