Moving away from home to university can bring about a whole new world of opportunities, from learning to live on your own, trying new things, making friends and typically lots of trips to the local pub.

Loughborough is the perfect central location for a night out on the town. The market town allows for easy access to entertainment nightlife and the neighbouring cities of Leicester and Nottingham.
Whether you are a fresher looking for your new local or a third-year trying to make your way through Loughborough’s finest pubs, bars and clubs before graduation, there’s something for every Loughborough student.
