On your marks

Welcome you to DMU!  This section aims to give you a range of useful information before you start your new role with us and offers you an insight into our university.

This link takes you through to our main DMU website and the section “about DMU”. Discover more about the university. These pages are regularly updated with news and events as well as giving information on our structure of Faculties and Directorates and our governance. There is also a fascinating section tracing our history back to medieval times and bringing us right up to date with details of our £136  million pound campus development!

We think this is a good place to start and then navigate your own way around the rest of our DMU site according to your specific interests.


Another good place to look is the “DMU Staff" pages.

Once you are at DMU, this screen will be the first one that opens up when you log in to your computer!    

As a new member of staff you might be interested in our staff benefits, staff development and our appraisal scheme – all are covered in this section.

In the People and Organisational Development section you will also find details of all our staff Policies, Procedures and Guidelines in the A-Z list.


We would particularly like to highlight our strong commitment to Equality & Diversity and to Health & Safety:

Equality and diversity

De Montfort University (DMU) is committed to driving forward equality for all of our staff, students, visitors and contractors.

We believe that working towards the elimination of discrimination and harassment, promoting good relationships across the university and advancing equality of opportunity helps to make us a diverse, vibrant and friendly place to study and work.

For more information, please visit our equality and diversity web pages.

In March 2016, we launched DMUfreedom, our new equality and diversity charter.  DMUfreedom is built on our strong reputation for positive action and with our conviction we can and should lead on fairness and inclusion in the higher education sector.

For more information, please visit out DMUfreedom web pages.

Health, safety and wellbeing

DMU believes that the health, safety and wellbeing of all at the university is one of its highest priorities. The university is committed to continually improving standards, and aims to achieve best practice in health, safety and wellbeing as a critical part of providing excellence in research and teaching.  The university is committed to ensuring that it is a safe, healthy, creative and inspiring ‘space’ to study and work.
