Loughborough AU

The Athletic Union (AU) is the section of the Students’ Union that offers sporting opportunities to Loughborough students. As a part of the Students’ Union, it represents the members of both Loughborough University and Loughborough College. Its primary responsibilities are to run and promote sporting activities amongst the members of the Students’ Union and to provide support and guidance to each of its 59 clubs. The AU is here to help you have the best experience possible as a Loughborough student.

Within the AU, you can take part in a variety of sports and compete at a variety of levels. Several clubs have development squads, and many members have gone on to become international athletes.

Being a part of Loughborough AU is an incredible feat and comes with years of prestige; in the 2018-19 academic year, we secured our 40th British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) win, cementing our annual win since the competition began in 1979. Loughborough University is also home to an incredible array of facilities, including two gyms, sports pitches accross campus, and research labs on the cutting edge of sports technology and science. Due to it's achievements in sports, Loughborough University is also the number one university for sports-related subjects in the world.
