The newly refurbished computing laboratories in Gateway House provides 80 computer workstations (20 HP PCs running Windows/Linux and 60 Apple iMac computers running OS X and Windows). All laboratories have printing facilities, internet access, internal network access and digital projectors to aid in teaching.
The current home of De Montfort Students' Union (DSU), Campus Centre, has been completely refurbished to create a state-of-the-art environment for DSU improving the student experience.
The new-look Campus Centre is the hub for student life. On the ground floor, visitors can eat or drink at a café selling Starbucks coffee, at Subway or at Milly Lane’s, the campus’ newest eatery run by DSU, selling freshly handmade hot and cold food, coffee and smoothies.
Also on the ground floor is a Spar and Subway. There is also the DSU-owned charitable accommodation service Sulets and SUpplies, DSU’s shop, selling art supplies stationary and clothing, and offering printing and binding services.
A newly-created staircase in the centre of the building leads up to the first floor, where the DSU officer team has new offices.
Run by students for students, DSU now offers more than 120 societies as well as 40 sports clubs. You can also get involved in the award-winning Demon Media group, volunteer to help in the community, become a course or faculty rep, and take part in the union’s annual elections. Find out more.
