FRESH focus on Loughborough


Despite what you might’ve heard, there’s more to Loughborough than elite sports facilities and the so-called campus bubble… Although they are fantastic!

Here are some of the top student hotspots to visit during your time here:

  • Where to drink?

You’re never far from a comforting bar or pub in Loughborough. Have you been to these yet?

  • Head to the club?

People will tell you to head to Nottingham or Leicester for a ‘proper’ night out, and they’re probably right if you want that city vibe. But, that doesn’t mean you won’t have unforgettable nights at one of these too!

  • Outdoorsy

Loughborough is surrounded by areas of countryside and perfect places to walk, run, cycle, and escape for a few hours. Follow the Quorn footpaths, cycle to Beacon Hill, or, relax with your mates at the Quarry!

  • Time to HIIT the gym?

Home to many world class athletes past and present, Loughborough is certainly not short of fitness facilities.

  • Where to shop?

Nobody’s denying that Loughborough town centre is slightly out of the loop when it comes to high-street shopping faves, but, when you’ve got 2 big cities less than 20 minutes away on the train, who cares?!

  • Where to watch a film?

Need an evening away from the books? Head to the cinema! If you’ve been doing a little too much damage to your loan recently then see what’s on at Flix, the student-led cinema, for a fraction of the price.
