Travelling to DMU

By car

Leicester is just off the M1 and close to the A1, allowing easy access to the North and South. The M69 and M6 are also close by and offer access to Birmingham, Wales and the South West.

Sat Nav: If you are travelling by car and using Sat Nav, use postcode LE2 7DP, which will direct you to our main car park near the centre of the campus.

If you’re coming to an event e.g. Open Days or graduation ceremony, specific parking regulations will apply so please check your joining instructions for details.

If you’re travelling to DMU for a business meeting, visitor spaces can be pre-booked by your meeting organiser. 

Blue badge holders - spaces are available on a first come, first served basis so arriving early is recommended. 


There is a marked network of cycle routes across the city and a high number of accessible cycle racks on campus. In addition, for a small charge The Bike Park in Town Hall Square allows you to leave your bike safely and even take a shower or change a tyre if necessary.

Public transport

High-speed train links connect Leicester to London and many other large towns and cities, while bus and coach services provide great value and reliable connections across Leicester and to most parts of the UK. Park-and-ride services are also provided in the city.

If you are coming to one of our Open Days, DMU staff will be at Leicester train station and the central bus station, to greet. They will also direct you to our free shuttle buses that operate specifically for our Open Days and these will transport you to our campus. 


East Midlands International Airport is less than half an hour away and Birmingham, Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton and Stansted airports are all within reach.
