About Loughborough

Sitting in the north of Leicestershire, almost right in between Nottingham and Leicester is the university town of Loughborough. Home to around 60,000 people, and around 20,000 students, the town certainly has a thriving student population.

The town itself is pleasant with medieval roots and a strong industrial history. Perhaps not known for the wildest nightlife, the town still offers a number of popular student pubs and bars. The town houses a number of museums and beautiful outdoor spaces such as the outwoods nature reserve and Queen’s park.
