Autumn Leaves

During the autumn leaves are cleared from all footpaths and the most heavily used paths are prioritised. During this season, in wet and slippy conditions, staff are advised to take care and to use the main footpaths.

Winter Gritting

The campus and residences are gritted by a contractor overnight when the temperature falls below zero. Only the major routes are gritted and there may be some areas that are not covered. Please take care and stay on the gritted routes.

Please note that the management of all pavement areas outside of main campus is the responsibility of Leicester City Council, this includes University Road and Lancaster Road; see their web site for further information.
