History of the campus
Here at De Montfort University we have the facilities and leading-edge expertise to help support organisations across many different industry sectors.
We are a dynamic institution with a long and vibrant history of improving people’s lives through education.
Originally founded as Leicester School of Art in 1869, the university has evolved through many incarnations and is formed from a diverse range of specialist organisations.
Our reputation for quality and distinctiveness in teaching and research is a direct result of our heritage.
The last decade has seen many changes at DMU. Recent years have seen the opening of significant new buildings that enhance DMU’s modern, state-of-the-art facilities, including the Campus Centre, the PACE Building and the Hugh Aston Building.
Facilities for your business
No matter how well-resourced an organisation is, it is unlikely to have in-house facilities and expertise that can satisfy their development needs.
Here's where we can help:
- We can offer tailored solutions to business needs, combining our academic expertise with state-of-the-art specialist labs and equipment.
- We house a number of start-up businesses in our Innovation Centre.
- Our buildings are available for hire for large conferences and events.
