Welcome activities


When you arrive at DMU for the very first time there will be a lot to take in, so we’ve organised a weekend of events to give you a taste of the amazing DMU experience. 


Welcome Weekend

Saturday 23 – Sunday 24 September
11am – 4pm | 11am – 12pm: Quiet Hour


From 11am, the campus will come alive with a festival atmosphere and our staff will be on-hand to answer your burning questions on everything DMU, from your support services to our exciting employability opportunities.  

Get involved with our circus entertainment or have your caricature drawn before heading to our information stands where you can find out all you need to know about starting your DMU journey.  

You can meet your DSU team who are here to help you have the best possible experience at university or find out where your campus buildings will be with our friendly Student Ambassadors. 

Your health and wellbeing while at university is especially important to us. Throughout the year, we’ll be promoting events to help you make easy health and wellbeing choices so look out for the Healthy DMU giveaways. 

Don’t miss it!

A Welcome stand will be in the entrance foyer of Kimberlin Library (building 25 on this map) to help signpost you to your faculty induction talks, events and campus buildings. Why not speak to our student ambassador team who will share their knowledge on getting the most out of university life?
