Entirely run by Loughborough students, the Union is home to over 100 clubs, societies and Athletic Union (AU) teams. It has its own radio station and recording studio as well as the employment exchange, student advice and RAG (student fundraising organisation). During the day students can eat at one of the several cafés, while at night a weekly programme of events regularly fills the bar and nightclub to its capacity of over 2500 – making it Loughborough’s largest night time venue.
