Travelling by Motorcycle

Motorcyclists are welcome at our Derby Campus. We appreciate the fact that motorcycles take up less parking space than cars, cause less congestion and give better journey times for riders. We provide free motorcycle parking at all of our sites, with CCTV coverage and shelter at Kedleston Road and Markeaton Street. Motorcycle parking is half the car parking price our Halls of Residence.

If you are based at Kedleston Road, we have lockers specifically allocated for motorcyclists, you can apply for one of these by coming to the transport office wearing you motorcycle kit! A £20 deposit applies.


We recognise the importance of safe riding and have linked up with a local motorbike training school, Easy Rider to provide training for students at a discounted rate.

Currently University staff and students can receive a £10 discount for CBT training with Easy Rider in Derby.

Special Events

We run periodic promotional events for motorcycling, where various motorcycles are displayed, competitions are run and many different representatives of the motorcycling community are invited to display their bikes and merchandise.
