See this simpler map for the travel descriptions below.

By car

It is best to enter the campus via the west entrance. After the gate house, turn left at the roundabout past the unused gate house, and follow the road up the hill. Take the left turn and drive down the slop and enter the vistor car park on your left. To come to the reception, come back up the slope on foot, and the building is to your left.


See the simple map; you can enter off the New Ashby Road where it says No Access (for cars), come up the hill, past the first left turn; the building is on your left. There are ample cycle racks down the side of the Civil Engineering building and the next one.


Take the Kinch University Shuttle from the train station or town centre (at the end of Market Street, past the Griffin pub, outside the newsagents). It takes about 10 minutes. There is one fare. Ask the driver to drop you outside Mechanical Engineering. On a Saturday it is the end stop. See the simple map. Cross the road and walk down the hill on the right hand side. Civil Engineering is the second building, take the step down or follow the path round for smooth access. See here for timetable.

Organised by Retrofit Loughborough a consortium of Transition Town Loughborough, PermaRock LTD, The Energy Saving Co-operative with support from Loughborough University
