The Venue@DMU

The Venue@DMU is purpose-built to hold spectacular ceremonies, performances and celebrations. Since it opened in 2015, we have held all our graduation ceremonies here and the results have been outstanding, giving students the kind of send-off their efforts deserve, using full, professional lighting, powerful sound and creative staging to give each graduate their moment in the spotlight in front of friends and family.

Formerly a sports hall, DMU invested £5million into transforming the building, right next to the Queen Elizabeth II Leisure Centre into a huge entertaining space. Its polished wooden floors, retractable bleacher-style seating and full lighting and sound rigs make it adaptable to any kind of celebration, from business away days to weddings.

The university uses it for, among other things, graduations, matriculations and welcome events for new students and award ceremonies. Upstairs there is a series of smart modern meeting rooms and a kitchen to prepare refreshments. As part of DMU’s commitment to operating for the public good, the Venue@DMU can be hired for private bookings, too.
