Your DMU Welcome

We would like to give a warm DMU Welcome to all our new students.

These webpages offer ways to connect with others, be active, learn more about the rich community you can be part of and discover the support on offer to ensure your experience is the best it can be.

Healthy DMU is our whole university approach to student wellbeing. We want you to achieve your full potential whilst studying here and we have developed this information to help your journey get off to a fantastic start.

Welcome back to De Montfort University

In the centre of campus, you can meet our Student Welfare Teams and find out more about opportunities such as volunteering, DMU Sport, DMU Music and DMU Global at our stands.
