On the University of Leicester Global Centre’s relatively small campus, all of the academic buildings are located within a few minutes’ walking distance of one another. The Leicester train station is within walking distance of the school, and the area is filled with a variety of amenities, including supermarkets, a cinema complex, local shops, and restaurants. The airport that is closest is East Midlands Airport, which provides service to 28 different countries.

Buildings at the university showcase more than a century’s worth of architectural trends, each of which reflects the institution’s development and history. The Fielding Johnson, the earliest structure on campus, was constructed in 1837 and is an excellent illustration of the style of architecture known as late Georgian. A significant number of the more recent structures have been recognised with accolades for their outstanding architectural design.
