Loughborough Students’ Union is run by students, for students. We are here to support you throughout your student journey; representing you, providing advice when you need it and supporting student led activities to form a strong and supportive student community.
Our London offering is specially tailored to what we know works best for students and researchers at the London campus. We have a dedicated staff member based at the London campus as well as a team of staff and Executive Officers based at the Loughborough campus who are available to support you.
We also have an office on Floor 2 of the London Campus Building with information on activities in the local area, a pop-up stash shop, space to meet and organise activities or events and a confidential room for discussing any issues you are having.
As our student cohort in London is made up of Postgraduate Taught students and Doctoral Researchers, as opposed to our Loughborough campus which is primarily Undergraduate, our offer in London differs quite a lot to our main campus. We know how busy postgraduate students are with their studies so each year we work with you to decide what you would most like to spend your time doing and how we can support you best.
Academic Representation is at the very heart of Loughborough Students' Union. We work in partnership with Loughborough University at both our Loughborough and London campuses to ensure all students and researchers are provided with the best academic experience possible and feel empowered to initiate positive change within their departments.
Our Academic Representation Co-ordinator supports a network of over 500 academic Course Reps championed by our Education Executive Officer. Our Reps operate at undergraduate, postgraduate taught (PGT) and doctoral research (DR) levels to ensure the voice of students and researchers is a powerful force for change. Elections for Course Reps will take place in October with the opportunity to nominate yourself to be part of the London Rep team in the first week of term.
LSU Advice is a service provided by Loughborough Students’ Union and provides free, independent and non-judgemental advice and guidance for students who are facing difficulties with their studies or conflict with the University. We have a dedicated advisor at the London campus who can help you to understand University policies and regulations, to know your rights, to draft any emails or letters required, and where necessary attending meetings with you.
We have a very popular pop up shop that runs throughout the year where you can purchase or order for home delivery branded LSU and Loughborough University items such as hoodies and mugs which provide a great opportunity to feel part of the Loughborough family, and keep warm through the cold London winters!
The Loughborough London Support and Social Network is a group formed each year from Postgraduate Taught students and Doctoral Researchers responsible for creating a friendly, welcoming learning community for any students or researchers registered at the Loughborough London campus. We have a completely fresh group of students every year which means whilst we don’t have ready-made societies and projects for you to join in with, the London SSN provides the exciting opportunity to lead on social and supportive activities that you and your cohort are passionate about.
