Campus during Open Day

How to earn yourself a free breakfast on Open Day

The University is set to hold its Autumn Open Days later this month (23-24 September) and staff are being asked to consider what they can do to help alleviate traffic on campus.

Ahead of the Autumn Open Days, the University is experiencing a significant amount of interest from prospective students and their families.

While this is fantastic news for Loughborough, it does mean that a significant amount of increased traffic on campus is expected, particularly on Friday which is also a normal working day.

There are a number of ways in which staff can help to reduce the amount of vehicles on campus by adjusting their usual routines of getting to work.

Sustainable ways of getting to work

For those that do not need a car, cycling, walking or running are good alternative options. Catching the Kinch Bus is another, with free of charge travel along the whole route during the Open Days 7.30am and 6.00pm.

If staff chose a sustainable way to get to work, take a picture and tweet @SustainLboro using the hashtag #LboroOpenDay.

Car Share

If a car is required to get to work, staff are encouraged to consider car sharing with colleagues that live nearby. There will be a number of car parks dedicated for staff parking.

Staff can park in the car parks detailed below:

Working from Home

Colleagues who spend some time working from home as part of their usual week and, who are not part of the Open Days, may want to consider moving their work from home day to the Friday. Before doing so, please speak with line managers about how this would work with your schedule and the wider team.

Free breakfast roll

Free breakfast rolls are on offer to those who seek alternative ways of travelling to work (including vegetarian options). These can be redeemed at James France, the EHB or Village Bar until 11.30am on Open Day. Alternatively, the vouchers can also be redeemed after the open days until 30 September.

Staff will be stationed at the entrance to the car parks and will provide staff with a breakfast voucher. Those choosing sustainable options can also collect their voucher from the Hazlerigg Building Reception desk.
