ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2019

Project Detail

Loughborough University Student Village

Large Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Winner

A new active campus and student village in the heart of the Loughborough University includes 617 bedrooms and an Elite Athletes Centre.

The project included 20 adjustable climatic bedrooms, able to simulate altitudes of up to 5,000 metres for high performance training of both able bodied and disabled athletes.

The landscape design is influenced by sport. The paving of the main access route resembles a running track and numerous features are incorporated such as climbing walls, trampolines, an outdoor gymnasia and a ball wall.

Project Overview

The project was driven by Loughborough University’s need to replace existing student accommodation and provide more to satisfy growing demand as the student population grows.

The Elite Athletes Centre further positions the University as a national centre for sporting excellence both for abled and disabled athletes.

Opportunities for off-site construction were taken wherever possible. Precast concrete framing was adopted for the superstructure to the accommodation blocks and prefabricated bathroom pods were installed in all bedrooms. These features enabled a quicker build programme.
