The Students, newly promoted to English National One for next season, invited the Barbarians for the special match to open their new grandstand at Holywell Park.
Robinson, an ex-Loughborough student who captained the University to victory in the UAU Final at Twickenham in 1986, also captained the Barbarians three times in his playing days.
"It is a great honour for me to be invited to coach the Barbarians and especially to go back to a university which holds such special memories."
Included in the Barbarians' 22-man squad are Japan's Rugby World Cup fly-half James Arlidge, stalwart Premiership props Duncan Bell and Chris Budgen, and former Great Britain rugby league star Sean Long.
Also in the squad are the top points and try scorers in English National One for the season, Rory Teague and Philip Chesters respectively.
Among former Barbarians accepting return invitations are Nottingham Rugby's Kiwi duo Craig Hammond and Joe Duffey, Cardiff Blues' flanker Josh Navidi, and scrum-halves Chris Pilgrim (another Loughborough graduate) and Nick Runciman.
The Barbarians, of course, are coming to Kingsholm on May 29th when they take on Ireland in what is sure to be a fantastic evening's rugby.
The Gloucester Rugby trio of Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu, Akapusi Qera and Mike Tindall have already been confirmed for the game as well as a host of other international stars including Stephen Donald, Joe Rokocoko and Shane Williams.
