Welcome to LSU Velocity. We provide unique experiences in transport and logistics, available exclusively to Velocity members. We also offer extra-curricular lectures and activities which are open to the wider LSU and Loughborough University community.
Our members enjoy three exclusive benefits which are only available with Velocity at Loughborough:
- Access to a wide range of on and off-campus day trips, lectures and activities in transport and logistics
- The option to take part in our Annual Trip every year (a subsidised trip abroad to explore international transport)
- Exclusive discounts on flying lessons and light aircraft hire through our unique partnership with Donair at East Midlands Airport
If you want to become a member of Velocity, you will need to purchase a membership below. There are several different classes of membership, and these are explained below, with each option giving you access to different opportunities within the society.
Full membership (first-time students)
If you have not been a member of Velocity before, full membership costs £10. This gives you the opportunity to participate fully in all Velocity activities, and you can also take advantage of our Annual Trip subsidy and discounted flying with Donair.
Full membership (returning students)
If you have been a member of Velocity at any point in the past, full membership costs just £5. This gives you the opportunity to participate fully in all Velocity activities, and you can also take advantage of our Annual Trip subsidy and discounted flying with Donair.
Associate membership (staff, alumni and other non-LSU students)
Whether or not you have been a member of Velocity at any point in the past, if you are not currently a student at Loughborough Students Union you need to join Velocity as an associate member. Associate membership costs £10. This gives you the opportunity to participate fully in all Velocity activities, and you can also take advantage of our Annual Trip subsidy and discounted flying with Donair. Associate membership confers all the benefits of full membership, but Associate members are not permitted to stand for election to Committee or participate in Society Elections. We welcome all as Associate members, but due to operational constraints all Associate memberships are at the discretion of the Committee, and the Chair's decision is final in these matters.
Day trip only membership (all students)
In addition to our transport related trips and socials, LSU Velocity also organise day trips to destinations across the UK. This year you can look forward to trips to Cadburys World, Alton Towers and Twycross Zoo amongst others, and best of all there is no additional membership cost payable to join us on one of these trips. Day trip only membership for students costs £5, but you get a £5 discount off the cost of your first trip, so membership is free of charge. Please note that day trip only membership only permits access to specific trips advertised as Velocity Day Trips, and not to the wider activities of the Society. If you are interested in our transport related trips as well, consider one of our full memberships above; all full members are also welcome to join us on day trips.
