Welcome to Royce Hall
Message from the Hall Chair
No elections are currently running
My name is Alex and I am your hall chair for this year. I head up a committee of 18 people whose job is to ensure you get the most out of your Loughborough experience. Royce is situated in the heart of the Student Village which is within 2 minutes walking distance from the local shop, Pilkington Library and Parcelz. It is also within a 5 minute walk from the Students' Union, Powerbase, Holywell Gym and all the other essential places on campus. It is in a perfect location.
Royce offers many opportunities to get involved all year round. Whether you're looking to play a variety of sports, get involved with charity work or volunteering. Just this year alone, our Rugby Team beat the IMS Champions of Durham in the inaugral Varsity day. We also excelled in Football, Basketball, Hockey and Tennis, on top of being the reigning Mixed Badminton Champions, thanks to the hard work of our highly commmended Sports Sec team. Furthermore, our Action reps maintained our position as a well established hall for commitment to voluenteering.
Royce is a very sociable hall with punch parties, block parties and other events being held every week, this is a great way to meet different people in the Royce family. We are a catered hall too, which is a fantastic way to get to know everyone and catch up on with your mates in the dining hall.
We also run two balls each year; the infamous fancy dress Christmas ball and the summer ball, which always live up to the hype! In 2016 The summer ball was a fantastic way to cap off the year.
Each year we host the well renowned Royce 100, which is our own charity event exclusive to Royce. This is a 100 lap race around our hall in memory of our former Rag rep Peter Holmes, everyone can get involved through volunteering or running, with celebrations in the evening. Finally our Hall Day is called St Fred's day. This is where we hire inflatables, have a BBQ and party, wearing our St Freds Day t-shirts, definitely one to look forward to. All of these lead to you having a great first year of your university life , and I guarantee that, if not I'll buy you a drink, as it was certainly one of the best years of mine!
I'm sure after reading this you will pick Royce and I look forward to meeting you all in September.

What is the room bond?
Your room bond is paid to STUDENT ACCOMODATION through their website, who are seperate to Royce. The room bond acts as a deposit which is paid back to you at the end of the year as long as you have not caused any damages during the course of your stay. You should have been sent an email with a link in order to pay this. This also has to be paid before you move in.
Platinum and Gold
Platinum and Gold can be purchased through the unions' website. We would fully recommend you purchasing one of these, especially platinum. If you purchase Platinum at a cost of £149 you will get FREE entry to all Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights at the union, the most popular nights in Loughborough. This also includes queue jump for those nights an essential if you don't want to be stuck out in the cold! You will also get a FREE Freshers ball ticket which is a huge night at the end of Freshers Fortnight, there is always a Headline Act performing, last year this was Sigma! Plus you will get loads of drinks deals throughout the year.
If you purchase Gold at a cost of £89, you only get your FREE entry to the union on Wednesday and Fridays during freshers and then an odd 1 or 2 in the term. You will also get FREE entry to all Tuesday nights and that's about it.
Platinum is the best thing that the Students Union has to offer. Everyone you ask will say it is most definitely worth purchasing. You will be quite surprised how many nights you will actually go out and having Platinum gives you free entry and queue jump to all those nights at the union, where normally it is a cost of £4 and a very long queue. If you have Platinum it is bound to save you money on a night out. Platinum is a must buy by every loughborough student who enjoys a night out, even if you just want to go out once a week or fewer! Make sure you get your hands on the Platinum deal and have a great year at loughborough.
