Getting here

Getting to campus is easy. We're located close to great transport links.

College Court

If you are staying in accommodation before the Teacher and Advisor Conference or joining us for the delegate dinner on 30 March you will need to make your way to College Court.

If you are travelling by car, there is free parking available at The College Court accommodation.

If you are travelling to us by train or coach, we recommend ordering an Uber when you arrive at Leicester train station or St Margaret’s Bus and Coach Station. The Uber journey will be to the address: College Court, Knighton Rd, Knighton, Leicester LE2 3UF.

If you travel to us by train or coach, we are organising a bus to transport you from College Court to our Freeman’s site on the morning of the conference. The bus will be departing the College Court car park at 8.15am. There will be secure luggage storage on our site for you to store your bags during the conference. 

The Freemen’s Common multi-storey car park

If you are travelling to us by car, on the morning of Friday 31 March you will be able to park in the Freemen’s multi-storey car park which is next to where our conference is being held. Address: 11 Putney Road, Leicester LE2 7TF.

If you have previously notified us of our registration plate, you will be able to simply drive in to the car park and leave via the electric barrier without making a payment.

If you haven’t notified us ahead of the conference, you will need to enter your registration number in to the car parking payment machine and pay for your parking. You will be able to claim back the cost for your parking with your receipt.

Use LE2 7TF in Google Maps or your SatNav. If our carparks become full, you can park in local pay and display carparks.

Please note there is no right turn to the multi-story when approaching southbound from Welford Road (e.g. from the city/main campus). The car park can be approached when heading northbound up Welford Road at the Putney Road/Welford Road junction, or heading southbound from the city to access Putney Road via Counting House Road.

Meet the team

Clare Marchant's talk. Opportunity to hear from the admissions team at Leicester. I must emphasise how impressed I was with both the content and mode of delivery. It was fantastic.

Good to hear the speakers and also see the comments from other advisors - questions asked were all relevant and helped you appreciate we are all in similar boats! Great attention paid to all of this by the Leicester staff.
