The programme is based in the Great Hall of what was once Leicester Castle. Originally built in approximately 1150, and then extensively rebuilt in approximately 1523, the Great Hall has recently undergone a restoration project. Based in Leicester’s historical Castle Quarter adjacent to the university, the Great Hall will provide a prestigious and inspirational setting for students who have the passion and talent to change the business world.
Students will also be taught in the Hugh Aston Building, which was purpose-built at a cost of £35 million. Facilities include break-out spaces for group work; quiet study zones for individual work, high-spec IT labs and a café. Learning will be supported by access to DMU’s excellent facilities.
We have 1,600 study places and more than 700 computer workstations across all library locations on campus. These give access to more than half a million print publications, thousands of e-books and e-journals and a huge range of DVDs plus a host of research databases.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
The Library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
The current home of De Montfort Students' Union (DSU), Campus Centre, has been completely refurbished to create a state-of-the-art environment for DSU improving the student experience.
The new-look Campus Centre is the hub for student life, on the ground floor is a convenience store, a Subway and a Starbucks. There is also the DSU-owned charitable accommodation service Sulets and SUpplies, DSU’s shop, selling art supplies stationary and clothing, and offering printing and binding services.
A newly-created staircase in the centre of the building leads up to the first floor, where the DSU officer team has new offices.
