Getting here

Travelling to the University

See our guide to getting to the University of Leicester by bus, train and car. Why not find out more about the City of Leicester and make a day of it?


There is no car parking on the main campus, except for pre-arranged parking for visitors with disabilities and mobility difficulties. Parking for visitors is available at Leicester Racecourse, Oadby where we are offering a free park and ride. Alternatively, there are several car parks nearby.
