Originally built in approximately 1150, and then extensively rebuilt in approximately 1523, the Great Hall has undergone a restoration project. Under the leadership of Professor Dana Brown, Leicester Castle Business School is based in the historical setting of Leicester Castle, enhanced by a £4.2 million refurbishment, and is here to meet the needs of 21st century business.
Going Beyond Business As Usual, we offer an accessible learning environment that invites you to challenge convention while also providing you with the opportunity and tools to think, create and inspire. With our engaging networking opportunities and inspirational setting, we aim to provide you with not just a qualification but a transformational experience.
Students will also be taught in the Hugh Aston Building, which was purpose-built at a cost of £35 million. Facilities include break-out spaces for group work; quiet study zones for individual work, high-spec IT labs and a café. Learning will be supported by access to DMU’s excellent facilities.
We have 1,500 study places and 650 computer workstations across four sites on campus. These give access to more than half a million publications, an extensive range of DVDs, e-resources and thousands of electronic journals.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
Award-winning staff are on hand to help and there is a café for study breaks. We offer a range of workshops, drop-in and one-to-one sessions, and our Just Ask service provides email and telephone support.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Originally set up in our main Kimberlin Library, the learning zones proved so popular that more were created in the Eric Wood Building and Greenhouse. These flexible spaces are ideal whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with interactive whiteboards and DVD players. Eduroam wi-fi is available across all campus locations.
