History


Loughborough University is proud of its long history as an institution of further and higher education. Thanks to the vision of its founding father, Dr Herbert Schofield, it has been able to grow and develop into one of the country’s top universities.

Throughout its history Loughborough University has built upon its distinctive characteristics.  Today it is one of the country’s leading universities, with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research, strong links with business and industry and unrivalled sporting achievement.

That Loughborough now boasts an internationally known and respected university is largely due to the entrepreneurial vision and determination of Dr Herbert Schofield, Principal of Loughborough College for 35 years.

In 1909 a small Technical Institute in the centre of Loughborough was established, which provided local facilities for further education and offered courses in technical subjects, science and art.  Land was also acquired on the Burleigh Estate, enabling the early development of the University as it stands today.

In April 1966 Loughborough was awarded its Charter, in recognition of the excellence achieved by Loughborough College of Advanced Technology and its predecessor colleges. Then called Loughborough University of Technology, it was the country’s first technological university. It was renamed Loughborough University in 1996.

Other developments have included the reunification in 1977 with Loughborough College of Education and with Loughborough College of Art and Design in 1998. Land acquisitions in 2003, 2006 and 2010 have now made Loughborough the largest single-site campus in the country, with 438 acres of land.

In 2015 Loughborough will open a second campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Loughborough University in London will diversify and expand the high quality education offered to both postgraduate students and those looking to advance their professional development.

It will also provide the University with opportunities to further enhance its pioneering research and innovation that help to drive social change and boost prosperity.
