We look forward to welcoming you to DMU. Please complete online registration now (check your emails for details and, if you have any queries, call 0116 207 8775). It’s vital so that you can register quickly on arrival, view your timetable and receive your student ID as early as possible for a smooth start to your DMU studies . 

When arriving at DMU for the very first time there's so much to take in, so we’ve organised Welcome Weekend to give you a taste of the amazing experiences available at DMU.

This two day event will include stands from various teams from the university including external organisations. We will also have funfair stalls that are free to play with your friends.

For those students who are a bit unsure about cooking, there will be simple cooking demonstrations with free samples to take-away. We will also have a BBQ where you can buy refreshments.

For a taste of what to expect from Welcome Weekend, watch the video below from last year's event.
