Aylestone Meadows is a large nature reserve within the city. Brocks Hill Country Park is close to the Oadby Student Village, as is the University’s own Botanic Garden.

Leicester City Council has invested considerably in sustainable transport including bicycle lanes on some major roads. Leicester Railway Station has more than 200 secure bicycle spaces plus changing and washing facilities.

The University is a partner in one of the UK’s largest district energy schemes which saves the city 12,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.
