Falk Egg - the only hall you should even consider joining.
Voted the Best Hall of Residence in the UK in 2017 (Times Higher Education) whilst rated the highest value for money in 2019 (StudentCrowd); what more could you want? It's often said that Falk Egg isn't just a place to live... it's a way of life and the social experience is second to none. Joining the Falk Egg family will be the best choice you ever make. We're known for being the cheapest hall in Loughborough, but don't let that put you off; the recent refurbishment is what makes Falk Egg the best value for money hall in the country.
On this page, you can find information on all that Falk Egg can provide you, including social, charity and sporting activities, Hall Subs and Freshers Packs. Joining our Facebook group is a must if you want to ask the committee questions, find your flatmates, and stay up to date with all our latest news, events and the build-up to Freshers of course!

Falk Egg is made by the people who live here. Here, you will make friends and family for life and some of the most amazing memories. As one of the largest halls, with such a variety of amazing people, there’s a place here for everyone. We’re loud and we’re proud from day 1; with our infamous Sing-Off antics always stealing the show. We win even when we don’t, and you’ll see that from the day you arrive. You won’t want to leave, and you may choose to return for another year as many do. But even when you’re not living in Falk Egg, you won’t have really left, as each year, the alumni ‘Old Boys’ come back to relive the best time of their lives.
“What is a Falk Egg?” If you know you know.

Falk Egg will be the cornerstone of the amazing experience you will have here at Loughborough. Every day, without fail, when you walk down Falkner Eggington Boulevard ("The Bouley"), you'll stop and talk to someone you know. The rowdiest hall on campus; everyone claims they don't like us. Really people just wish they were us. Here at Falk Egg, you won't just make friends, you'll find a new family and a new home.
George Etherington (Hall Chair '16, Union President '17)
Falk Egg - renowned for the best social experience in the whole of Loughborough. Every year hundreds descend upon the hallowed Falk Egg Boulevard for the best year of their lives, and no matter what background they come from, Falk Egg never fails to deliver. Many come skeptical, but with the huge range of opportunities and events on offer from the hall, there is always something for everyone. Whether it be getting involved in sport, relaxing with your mates in the large communal areas, or even just for having a bit of a party, Falk Egg delivers every time.
It's true that every hall is jealous of what we have going on here.
See you in September, if you're lucky enough.
Leo Hothersall (Hall Chair '15)
Falk Egg is one of the most unique and exciting places you will ever come across. We may have the party-hard reputation of Loughborough but you will struggle to meet a more accepting and kindhearted group of people! The diversity and creativeness of Falk Egg gives us the platform to put on some cracking events and anyone lucky enough to live here could just have the time of their life.
It is often said Falk Egg isn't just a hall... It's a way of life. Embrace it!
The important stuff:
Hall Subs are a payment for (Freshers' and Returners') who are living in halls for an entire year and wants to be part of the amazing and inclusive Falk Egg community - the one that makes us the 'Times Higher Education Best Hall in the Country'.
Hall Subs are used to deliver the Falk Egg experience by providing hall activities throughout the year: punch parties, sports pitch hire, international food days, Welfare Week, the infamous Falk Egg Old Boys alumni weekend, subsidies for our Summer and Winter Balls and many more thrilling events. They also pay for hall improvements; just last year this included upgrading of all equipment in the games room, the installation of a 4K Full HD TV and an improved sound system for the common room, and an investment of £500 of sports equipment across all of Falk Egg's sports teams!
A new custom made pool table arrived in February and we’ve got a football table coming this year. We offer great value for money and are completely non-profit, guaranteeing that the money you put in will go directly back into your student experience.
Fresher Subscription (£90): This fee is for all first-year undergraduates who are joining us this year. Fresher subs are comprised of your freshers' pack and normal hall subs (see image). Falk Egg has the party-hard reputation and are renowned for providing the longest and most spectacular freshers' experience in Loughborough, and perhaps even the country. Freshers is an experience like no other and make for a huge part of your time at uni.
Returners Subscription (£45): This fee is for undergraduate students who are returning to Falk Egg and covers all hall activities (excluding freshers) and games/common room use throughout the year.
Erasmus/single semester subscription (£22.50): If you are only in Falk Egg for one semester, you are still required to pay Hall Subs to be involved.
Affiliates fee (£15): This is for those living outside of the hall. You could be an ex-Falk Egger, or any student living elsewhere in Loughborough who wishes to be involved in our hall activities throughout the year. Examples of these are stated above.
