New to Leicester

Located in the heart of England, Leicester offers students a vibrant hub of entertainment, commerce and culture – and the city centre is just 1,700 steps or a five-minute walk away from the DMU campus. You can do something different every day in Leicester: shop until you drop in stores ranging from independent, quirky boutiques to high street favourites; laugh until you cry, especially at the Leicester Comedy Festival; or dance until dawn at any number of clubs. Alternatively, thanks to the city’s diversity and culture, students can eat their way around the globe and they also have their choice of museums, theatres and cinemas. For those who simply want to chill outdoors, Leicester has some great parks and gardens.
