Loughborough University (colloquially known as Lufbra; i/?l?fb?r?/ luff-b?r? /?l?fbr?/ luff-br?) is a public research university located in the market town of Loughborough, Leicestershire, in the East Midlands of England. It is among the country's leading universities-consistently ranked among the top 20 in the UK[citation needed]-and is a member of the 1994 Group. 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. It is particularly noted for its sports-related courses and achievements.
