Loughborough University hosted the School Games again in 2022, and is the only higher education institute to host a School Games, and the single campus site offers an athlete experience similar to that experienced in an Olympic or Paralympic village.
Loughborough University is at the heart of England in the northern part of the county of Leicestershire – being centrally placed, it is well served by road, rail, and air.

The car park is a 7-minute shuttle ride from the sports venues.
