Visit us

Most of our events take place on the Loughborough University campus.

By car

The University campus is approximately two miles from Junction 23 of the M1. It is clearly sign posted on all the main approach roads to Loughborough.


Edward Barnsley Building

There are parking spaces available to the front and side of the building; take the turning off Epinal Way signposted ‘College’ and School of Art and Design’ and follow the road round to the right, then straight on through the barrier. During the daytime this parking is extremely limited, so we recommend, where possible, travelling to our events by public transport. Alternatively, you can park on the main campus and cross Epinal Way on foot.

Martin Hall

Take the main University entrance (East) off Epinal Way and park in Car Park 9. There are a limited number of parking spaces along the road behind Martin Hall. For evening events, you can park in the Edward Barnsley car park and cross Epinal Way on foot to reach Martin Hall.

Cognito (Loughborough Students’ Union)

There is a pay and display car park on the right hand side as you enter the main University campus (East), before you come to the security barriers.

By bus

The Kinchbus Sprint service operates from the railway station (via the town centre) every ten minutes during term time (Mon-Fri), and slightly less frequently at other times.

For Cope Auditorium and Martin Hall, you are best alighting at the Radmoor Centre stop outside Loughborough College. To get to Martin Hall from here, continue to walk in the bus’s direction of travel, crossing Epinal Way at the pedestrian crossing. As you enter Shirley Pearce Square (straight ahead), Martin Hall is on your left.

For Cognito, alight at the Students' Union bus stop, which is the first stop after you pass through the main University entrance.

By rail

Loughborough’s railway station is approximately 2 miles away with regular connections to Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham and London. Sprint buses run from the station to campus.
