Loughborough is very near to the M1 motorway, you need to leave it at Junction 23, which is the A512 New Ashby Road. You need to continue down the A512 for about 1 mile, then trurn Right on to the A6004, Epinal Way. The entrance to the University is on the Right, follow sighns for the Herbert Manzoni Building. Please note, I don't drive, I would check the directions yourself before leaving.
Loughborough is a mainline train station on the London St Pancras to Nottingham line. There are many regular trains from both directions, but please be warned Loughborough has a short platform and you will need to be in the Front Four carriages to get of. Trust me on this, its not much fun trying to leg it down a train with bags because nobody told you this before the train pulled in.
