Hugh Aston Building
You will be taught in the Hugh Aston Building, which was purpose-built at a cost of £35 million.
Facilities include lecture theatres and classrooms with capacities ranging from 50 to 250 people, break-out spaces for group work and quiet study zones for individual work.
The faculty has a large number of high-spec IT labs. The DMU bookshop stock a number of core text books and a range of background reading for your course, along with a variety of stationery.
The Oasis café in Hugh Aston provides Costa Coffee as well a range of snacks and refreshments.
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.
During standard term-time (October to June) the main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Outside of this period, and during university holidays, the library will remain open but with reduced opening hours.
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.
This is DMU’s social hub, housing a large food court, shops, the Lobby bar, De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU), performance studios and our chaplaincy.
There are also Conference Rooms, allowing us to host a variety of events from workshops, lectures, practical sessions and group work to exhibitions.
In March 2016 work is due to start in the centre to create a state-of-the-art new home for DSU, making it more visible, offering more breakout space and giving better access to its key services.
