The Holt

WELCOME TO THE HOLT - The oldest hall in Loughborough!

Welcome to The Holt - the most attractive accommodation Loughborough has to offer, providing the Holtimate hall experience for both freshers and returners!

Located just a ten-minute walk from campus, the five main accommodation blocks surround the Old Holt, a listed Victorian mansion. The Old Holt contains the reception, laundry room, and some bigger rooms, as well as the Common Room, which is furnished with pool and snooker tables, vending machines, comfy sofas, and a flatscreen TV. We may be off-campus, but we are still fully involved in Uni life and share everything Uni life has to offer!

Each block is divided into flats, each with a fully kitted-out kitchen and dining area. All rooms have 4ft beds, an en-suite, and desk space, making your student life as comfortable as possible!

With a wide range of students here, The Holt is ideal for everyone, with your Student Committee ensuring that Freshers is a fortnight you will never forget and that you have the best year of your life in Halls. The Action, RAG, Sport, and Social Reps, as part of your Committee, have events coming up for you throughout the year, which are not to be missed! Be sure to get yourself involved in dog walking projects, the Colour Run, IMS Sport, Punch Parties, and a whole host of other events put on around The Holt and the wider Uni throughout the year!
