Loughborough Student Village

The ‘Active Landscape’ is an initiative driven by Loughborough University to create an inclusive campus where activity is accessible to everyone and stimulates participation.  The initiative is strongly supported by Sport England and UK Sport who have been consulted in the development of this concept.

High quality student accommodation surrounds the active landscape for sports students and elite athletes, incorporating purpose-built accommodation, altitude living and nutritional facilities.

The Newly opened Claudia Parsons Hall is the newest Hall of residence, a result of an almost £50M investment in the University’s student village. It’s Loughborough’s first hall to be named after a woman, Claudia was an English engineer, adventurer and graduate of the university. To protect native species in the area, the hall is filled with plants and greenery promoting a biodiverse campus
