Mill Lane landscaping

Mill Lane is a refreshing green space outside the award-winning Vijay Patel Building, and a great place for students to enjoy their lunch, study outdoors, read, chat and relax.

It overlooks the River Soar, just along from the Riverside Cafe, one of DMU's newest eateries, tucked into the southern end of the Vijay Patel Building.

DMU has invested £136 million to create what we believe is a modern and inspiring place in which to study.


Along with the redevelopment of Mill Lane and the construction of the Vijay Patel Building, DMU has also invested in the restoration of Leicester Castle, creating the Leicester Castle Business School.

DMU has also refurbished the Campus Centre, the home of De Montfort Students' Union, created a series of new study spaces through campus and opened The Venue@DMU, home to events including graduations, matriculation and more.
