Guidance on wearing face coverings on campus


We believe our campus is one of the finest in the country. Located in the heart of Leicester, it blends the old and the new, reflecting the great tradition of our home city and its buildings.  

Campus life is a fundamental part of our students’ university experience and we’re looking forward to welcoming you to DMU so that you can enjoy our facilities, library, food and drink outlets and student spaces.

Coming to DMU and studying the course I do has really helped to build my confidence, which has been really good for me. It’s such a modern campus, with great history too. Everything is close together and well connected, plus it’s really near to the city centre.

I’ve lived in Leicester my whole life and studying at DMU in Leicester is amazing. It’s an amazing location, the campus is quite compact so everything’s all together in one place. The city is full of opportunity with plenty of things to do and you’re in walking distance of everything. In Leicester we do pride ourselves on the diversity of the city and how multi-ethnic we are, so it’s all about community. Being a smaller city it’s all about being a close-knit community, and that’s what DMU is all about too.
