Car Park Closures and Traffic Management

Advanced warning of car park closures and traffic updates around Campus

Please note that whilst we try to keep this page accurate and to forewarn you of road closures that affect access to the University, maintenance of the highways in the City of Leicester is under the control of Leicester City Council and not of the University.  The Council publishes weekly bulletins about forthcoming road works on its news page.
