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.
LSU Velocity is open to all, with current members having an interest in land based, maritime and aviation transport as well as general transport systems. There is no need to be studying a transport related degree to join, as we are open to anyone who would like an inside look into the transport industry, and is wanting to have great fun whilst doing so. We strive to give you the opportunity to experience things you wouldn’t normally have the chance to and alongside this aim to offer a variety of socials through the year from meals to pub trips and days out as a society.
Our members enjoy some 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)
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.
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 .
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. 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.
