Santander Cycles Student Offer

DMU has partnered with Leicester City Council and Santander for the Santander Cycles Leicester e-bike scheme, providing students, local residents and tourists a quick, easy and healthy way to get around the city.

This scheme demonstrates our commitment to making Leicester a smarter city and an environmentally sustainable landmark, as well as supporting the university in achieving more lower carbon travel as part of our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
