Student Life in Leceister
Our increasing popularity and success today has given us confidence to invest £136 million in a campus we believe is one of the finest anywhere. It’s a great place to live in, learn in and grow in and shape your life your way.
Sport is in DMU’s blood, because our students tell us taking part in performance or recreational activity, or just keeping fit, really builds their confidence, resilience and wellbeing. As part of our campus transformation we created the £1 million Watershed, a home for activities including rowing, five-a-side football, badminton, netball, basketball, indoor hockey, indoor cricket and volleyball and a space for our many societies to meet. Our £8 million leisure centre has a 25m pool, sauna, climbing wall, eight-court sports hall, fitness suite, free-weights area and dance studio.
You do your best when you feel you really belong somewhere. De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU), now based in a brilliant £3 million home, will make sure you’re quickly part of the DMU family (you’re automatically a DSU member when you come to DMU) and are inspired, involved, and have a voice, and so enjoy a rich university experience.
Squeezing the most you can from your time at university means studying hard, while having fun too. DSU offers more than 160 societies and sports clubs (covering everything from belly dancing to vegan eating) and hundreds of rewarding volunteering opportunities, plus Demon Media’s exciting radio, print, TV and web roles. There’s an on-campus nightclub, regular nights and days out (Harry Potter World is a favourite), activities and adventures, plus useful advice always on hand. It all makes your university experience healthy, hassle-free and fun. DSU has been named in the top 10 students’ unions in the UK in the influential National Student Survey, so you’re in really good hands.
Our dedicated student support team is ready to deal with any issues you may have before, during and after your studies. There’s a Student Advice Centre with info on coursework hand-in and collection, IT issues, contacting lecturers and also sharing your concerns confidentially. We understand the importance of a healthy mind and body, so make sport accessible and have a full counselling team to provide confidential support.
We’re proud that almost one-fifth of students at DMU are registered disabled, the fourth highest proportion among UK universities. Our award-winning Disability Advice and Support team sets out to make the experience of disabled students a great one, in keeping with the university’s core values of diversity and inclusivity. Ideas we have brought in include quiet-themed accommodation to help autistic students and those with mental health conditions.
We want all our students to thrive, challenge themselves and dream big in a positive environment they help us to create with their own ideas and feedback. DMU believes universities have a major responsibility to contribute to society through public engagement, and so bring about positive change. Square Mile India is a project sharing the skills of DMU students and staff to make a positive change for thousands of people. #DMUglobal is an international experience programme for DMU students which is fun and exciting, and also enriches your studies and impresses employers.
Instinctively open and friendly, we welcome applications from students studying a wide range of UK, EU and international qualifications.
Before you start making your mark, you need a place you can really call your own. That is why we aim to provide university-sourced accommodation for all new UK and international students who request it. Once you have made DMU your firm choice, we will send you details on how to book your accommodation. We have a range of high standard accommodation for students, with 10 halls of residence – and around 3,000 rooms – all in easy walking distance of the campus. There are mixed or same-gender flats, shared kitchen and laundry facilities, furnished bedrooms (some with en suite facilities) and internet access. Open Days are a great opportunity to visit halls.
It's a famous sporting city, home to Leicester City, 10-time rugby union champions Leicester Tigers and leading national basketball side Leicester Riders (all partners of DMU), plus Leicestershire County Cricket Club, and has a rich history. The city and county of Leicestershire are more popular than ever, with 33 million tourists flocking to see the sights in 2016.
Leicester is just off the M1 and close to the A1, allowing easy access to the North and South. The M69 and M6 are also close by and offer access to Birmingham, Wales and the South West. High-speed train links connect Leicester to London and many other large towns and cities, while bus and coach services provide great value and reliable connections across Leicester and to most parts of the UK. Park-and-ride services are also provided in the city. East Midlands International Airport is nearby and Birmingham, Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton and Stansted airports are all within reach.
De Montfort University Dance Society is one of the biggest societies on campus celebrating many forms of dance. They offer a range of classes, some aimed at beginners as well as catering for the more advanced, experienced performer.
From hobbyists to enthusiasts, the main objectives behind this society is to allow any students with an interest in producing music and audio to collaborate with like minded individuals to practice and improve their recording and mixing skills. As well as giving members the opportunity to work on any projects that might come from across the university, or from the city of Leicester - with the aim of improving each member’s portfolio and employability.
They want to enhance the writing experience for all types of writers. Whether you're a beginner trying out a haiku, or a group of friends ready to renga, as long as you want to write, you'll be more than ready for the society!
The Model United Nations society will give members the chance to be taught key skills i.e. what procedures to expect, the different committees involved and of course other important information etc. As this society entails academic debates and events, they have arranged for a coach in order for them to achieve their maximum potential.
Seen a new film and have a burning desire to review it? Read a book series that you can’t stop talking about? Or want to get into the world of article writing? Then Tea Break is the society for you. A lifestyle blog, written by students, for students. To date, they’ve had such a wide range of articles written for this extremely popular blog regarding Film and TV reviews, music reviews, fashion articles, tips for students, discussion posts and wider culture around the university.
