Future Space now has Handshake

The Future Space team is now working with Handshake to bring you access to all of our events, workshops, careers consultations, resources, external job opportunities and more!

How this works

If you are a new or current student, your Handshake account is ready and waiting for you – You just need to activate your account and you are ready to go. (Please note that this is for London students ONLY – Loughborough students can continue to access the full  Loughborough careers network offer).

Once you have activated your account, please complete your profile to improve your chances of success when looking for jobs. You will have to associate your account with us (Loughborough University) when you have set this up to access the full Future Space offer.

If you do not yet have an existing account, You can request one via email or set one up yourself by following the steps below. 

  • If you have received notification that your @student.lboro.ac.uk email account is due to expire, please follow these instructions to switch your account to a personal account to continue to access Future Space as a recent graduate or Alum.
