Welcome to Leicester

The University of Leicester offers you the full student experience. From the day you arrive you’ll be part of a community of Citizens of Change, living and working and studying together to make the world a better place. Hear from our own students about our teaching and learning, our library, our Students’ Union, our sports facilities, our accommodation, our clubs and societies and all the other opportunities available at Leicester.


Our Campus Tours are back (subject to future Covid developments). This is great because we know our compact campus is one of the things students love most about the University of Leicester. We will show your around our facilities and demonstrate how they have been adapted to keep everyone safe. Spaces are limited and booking is essential.
