Loughborough University (also known as Loughborough; c-enaudio=En-loughborough is a research based campus university located in the market town of Loughborough, Leicestershire, in the East Midlands of England.

It has been a university since 1966, but the institution dates back to 1909, when the then Loughborough Technical Institute began with a focus on skills and knowledge which would be directly applicable in the wider world, a tradition which continues to this day, with the UNIEI funded Annual Survey on University Technology Transfer Activities finding Loughborough to be the most efficient technology transfer operation in the UK.
