The Hotel is part of Loughborough University's Student Village project[5] which will see 617 new student bedrooms in new halls of residence opening in October 2018 and October 2019. The project is being managed by Faithful+Gould.[6]


The Elite Athlete Centre will have 44 bedrooms, all of which will meet accessibility standards. 20 of the bedrooms are altitude rooms, with the aim of facilitating altitude training, specifically the Live-high, train-low philosophy.[7]

Guests will have access to Loughborough University's sporting facilities,[8] including the High Performance Athletics Centre,[9] one of two UK Athletics National Performance Centres.[10]
