On arrival at DMU

What do I need to do on Registration Day?

  • Students studying at DMU Leicester campus: please attend your faculty registration event. If you have not received details please visit the faculty stand at the Spring Welcome event (Monday 21 January 2019).

  • Students studying by distance learning or at a partner institution, please contact your faculty.


Registration Day event

At the Registration Day event you will become an officially registered DMU student!

Home/UK students: You will be invited to your faculty at a specific time. You will be asked to show some ID (usually a driving licence or passport) and present your Student Loans Company documentation (University/College Payment advice letter).

International students: You will be invited to visit the Immigration Compliance Team in the Student Gateway, Gateway House. You will need to present your passport and necessary visa documentation and make a tuition fee payment where needed.

Some students, for example, those studying by distance learning, will not be required to attend the in-person registration event. Your faculty will send you details of any induction and registration-related action.

Student finance and tuition fees

You should bring your Student Loans Company documentation (home students) to your faculty event or make a payment (international students) at the Student Gateway, in Gateway House. We advise that you do this as soon as possible to ensure your fees are paid and any student funding is released to you promptly.

The virtual campus map can help you find the Student Gateway, in Gateway House.

What happens during my in-person induction?

It’s very important to attend all of the sessions scheduled for induction. You will be introduced to your programme of study and meet people who will play a significant role in your studies from within your faculty, such as the programme leader and personal tutor. You will also be introduced to centrally-based university resources and departments that are there to support your studies, such as the Student GatewayKimberlin LibraryIT Support and CLaSS. The induction week schedule will be emailed to you shortly.

When you arrive and have been given your student username and password you might want to start familiarising yourself with the university's IT systems, they can provide support throughout your time at DMU.

Is there a map to help me find my way around the campus?

Before you arrive you can get to know your surroundings by looking at our virtual campus map here, which has information about all the main university buildings, facilities and halls of residence.

Where can I get something to eat or drink?

There are lots of great places to eat around the university, including in the Food Village, the Riverside Café, the Kimberlin Library, Hugh Aston Building and Campus Centre, as well as ‘heat and eat’ areas where you can warm up food you’ve brought with you. Find out more about where to find our food outlets, opening times and what’s available.
