Community and Social Engagement

Living in the wider community

Loughborough is a friendly busy university town with plenty of shops, places to eat and outdoor space. Please be respectful when you are out and about, keep noise levels down if out at night and place rubbish in bins.

Social events

The Accommodation Team organise regular social events and will publicise these through social media platforms with all residents.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please come and let us know.


Residents over 18 can either register to be on the electoral register here or at your home address.  If you are registered in two areas – at home and at The Gables – you can vote in local elections in both areas but only once at a general election/referendum.

If you aren’t registered, you can’t vote. The electoral register is also used in Credit Referencing when buying some items such as a mobile phone or opening a bank account.
