Archive Material

The archive images date from the interwar period when Loughborough University transformed itself from a small technical institute providing evening classes in general technical subjects to a college specialising in engineering, handicrafts, teacher training and athletics.

In 1951–2 the College was divided into four separate institutions reflecting its main areas of interest. Loughborough College of Education provided teacher training; Loughborough College of Art taught art and design; Loughborough College of Further Education offered local and vocational training; and Loughborough College of Technology continued its courses in science and engineering. In 1966 the college was granted university status.
