How to get here

Both of our sites are pretty easy to find, but here is some information to help you reach us safe and sound.

Environmental policy and car sharing

The University of Leicester is fully committed to its environmental policy. With this in mind we would encourage all visitors to use public transport in the first instance. Should this not be possible complimentary car parking is available on-site at our Oadby location (the City Campus has very limited on-site parking weekdays between 8.30am to 5pm and should be discussed with one of our event organisers prior to your visit who can also advise of alternative off-site parking).

In the event that you do travel by car we would ask that you car share wherever possible. On arrival in Oadby, should you find that parking near your intended hall/accommodation area is full, please use one of the other available car parks and refrain from parking on public roads.

By road

The University benefits from two sites in easily accessible locations in Leicester. The city campus is signposted ‘University of Leicester’ on major roads entering Leicester and is within walking distance of Leicester mainline rail station.

Oadby Conference Centres, signposted ‘Botanic Garden and University Halls’, is located about two miles away in the highly regarded area of Oadby close to Leicester Racecourse. 

University maps

You can find your way to main campus, City Hub Suites or Oadby Conference Centres using the University's interactive map. Oadby Conference Centres are marked on this map as 'Halls of Residence'.

Alternatively, we have a pdf leaflet which will help you find your way to Oadby Conference Centres - Leaflet containing directions to Oadby Conference Centres

Satellite navigation system

To help you plan your route, here are the postcodes for our main buildings which should enable more effective use of a satellite navigation system.
