Car Parking

Due to the success of the multi-million pound investment in our College campus, including the T-Level Centre, East Midlands Institute of Technology and Digital Skills Hub, there have been changes to our car parking arrangements on-site this year.

In line with promoting our mission to reduce our carbon footprint and striving for a sustainable environment, there will be no student parking on the Loughborough College Campus from 1st September 2022 – except for Blue Badge holders or those with an exceptional parking permit.

To find out whether you are eligible to apply for an exceptional parking permit, please read our Student Parking Policy and use the application form within the policy.

The application and supporting evidence will be reviewed by a panel who will decide whether an exceptional parking permit is granted.

If you are an evening student and require parking, please use this application form to apply for a permit.

As communicated last year, illegally parked cars will be ticketed and fined £40 by an external company from 1st September. This is to ensure the safety of everyone on campus, including access for emergency vehicles. The College will not profit from fines and any proceeds will be donated to our selected charity.

We encourage our students to contribute to our commitment to low carbon emissions by taking advantage of Loughborough’s public transport services and biking or walking to College.

  • Market Street Car Park; LE11 3EP – 14 minute walk to college –  £3.50 between 7am-8pm
