Travel information for Open Days

Leicester Railway StationIf you come by train…

Leicester is really easy to reach by train. We’re on the north-south line between London and Sheffield, and on the east-west line between Birmingham and Stansted. A train from St Pancras takes just over an hour to reach Leicester.

Please note: On Saturday 2 November 2019 there are scheduled works on the line between St Pancras and Leicester. Please check www.eastmidlandsrailway.co.uk for details of service alterations.

There will be Student Ambassadors at Leicester Station between 8.00am and 1.00pm. You can’t miss them: bright red tops and big, welcoming smiles. 

A University of Leicester shuttle bus will run between the station and campus every 20 minutes from 8.20am to 3.40pm. Our Student Ambassadors will direct you to the pick-up point. Or if you'd rather walk, the Student Ambassadors will direct you (the journey is less than a mile).

If you come by car…

Free parking is available at County Hall, Leicester LE3 8RA. A complementary park and ride shuttle bus will be running from the car park to Campus from 8.00am to 4.00pm (the journey will take approx. 20 mins).

If you already live in Leicester…

The Arriva 47/48 bus runs along University Road. We also have lots of bike racks if you want to cycle here.

If you've come a long way...

You might want to stay overnight when you come to visit us. There are plenty of hotels to choose from in the city centre - the Premier Inn and The Belmont Hotel are the closest to campus.
