I loved living in De Montfort University's on-campus accommodation. The facilities were exceptional, with modern furnishings and plenty of space for studying and relaxing. The location was great, and safety was a top priority with security personnel and CCTV cameras. The community was strong, and the staff were friendly and efficient. It was worth the investment for a convenient and enriching university experience.

Tutors are all amazing and really helpful
Fantastic faculty and really modern, clean buildings. Most of the staff really do care
I study online. But my fee is the same like study in uni
Amazing for student satisfaction!!
Great university overall. With lot of supports available.
The university is very organised. They have very good communication. DMU’s online system is also good.
very good university, great staff & very helpful! student union advice email can be very hard to get a response from but there are other ways of contacting them. clubs & societies have a wide range of options unfortunately due to covid many of them couldn't run properly this year.
With covid19 affecting the whole experience with campus life, there is not much to say. But with the few weeks, from the beginning of the school year, it wasn't so bad but clearly, COVID19 has robbed me of my DeMontfort University school and campus life experience. Hope we all come out of this pandemic stronger and happier.
Lovely experience, staff members really friendly and kind
I was really surprised with the DMU facilities and all the support provided to the students. I highly recommend it to all students.
I believe i made the right choice in choosing DMU however, due to the current climate of the pandemic, facilities have understandably been closed. It’s a shame, but i do hope in the near future i am able to gain a full experience of what this university has to offer.
Its a great university with many opportunities even during times like this. Every lecturer is helpful and is there for you when you need them
great uni to go to for socials and studying product design
It's a good uni but we've had no support during the pandemic which is really bad. The teachers haven't been helpful and some have even given us wrong information for assignments and when given a bad grade I was given next to no feedback to help improve
University is good, covid has restricted alot however before that it was very fun a variety of clubs are open.
DMU is such a supportive university, with plenty of opportunities
A great university with good facilities for all courses
I enjoyed my time at university and the campus was perfect. It’s in a great location and my teachers were friendly and supportive. I also loved my dmu global trip to Canada which was my highlight of university.
DMU has a great diverse range of societies, and students so you can always learn something new
Uni is alright you know, I really like the campus. Very nice and modern
Great place, really good teachers and people
Love the uni despite the covid
It’s great, really great place
Very fine for all courses, near to city centre, staffs are very Friendly and they are providing good facilities
Good educational facilities with lots of activities.
Its a very beautiful university with some beautifully built buildings and facilities for students around the campus. Staffs are friendly and helpful.
Very good university and good for international
Dmu seem to spend more on marketing than they do in teaching. Most of our equipment in CEM was either obsolote or unreliable. It made study very stressful as you would struggle to find information on the equipment you were using, and wouldn't always know if it would work when you needed it.
Coming to DMU was the best decision I have made! I can’t find any faults! The facilities are amazing and the accommodation I can’t speak enough of! I have made friends for life through societies and got endless support throughout my studies from the university! Especially during the current pandemic the tutors have been working extra hard to ensure we are getting the best learning and experience we possibly can!
middle of a pandemic right now so very limited experiences
Graphic Design and Illustration course is led by tutors who are heavily biased and bully students that they dislike. It creates a course culture of enabling bad behaviour, and no one is ever held to account for harassment. The tutors pick one or two students whose work they like, and put all the time and opportunities into those few who fit their house style. God forbid you produce work slightly different to those around you; prepare for the tutors to try and make you fit their mould and produce work exactly like everyone else. Poor, poor mental health care from the uni as a result. Avoid.
All in all a very good university and depending on which department you are placed in the staff are extremely friendly and helpful
Tried to get comms over postragrd courses, no reply or acknowldgement and sent the following complaint by email: Dear DMU, I have to say I am quite appalled at the lack of communication despite filling in several eforms, email correspondence and even an application for postgraduate study. I have had no feedback at all, and the postgrad open day is today. Just give me reasons why I should even contemplate study with you now, if this is the poor standard set? Kind regards
Great campus vibe with loads of study areas as well as areas to socialise. Inclusive atmosphere and lecturers and other members of staff are kind and helpful.
Nice place! Lectures are great and lots of support.
como serán las cases de la universidad durante el primer semestre
DMU is a very diverse university, ranging from the subjects taught to the people on campus - I've interacted with a lot of people on campus ranging from various walks of life to technical strengths and all of them have one thing in common; doing the absolute best they can in their studies and personal time. All of my lecturers are superb at what they teach and will almost move heaven and earth to assist you - even if it's not directly related to your course. The campus is clean and modern, and the facilities are some of the best when comparing to other universities I've seen (such as the 24/7/365 library). Being a computing student, I found that there were a lack of societies for people like me (apart from course-related societies such as the DMU Hackers, Robotics Club etc.). Another issue I found is that the careers service isn't always great at best, but I have a feeling that this may change over time. All in all, DMU is an excellent university and I'm glad that I had picked it.
Good courses, friendly staff. Amazing societies everyone was friendly. The library has great facilities as well as learning services which are really helpful
I made an enquiry CIPD (level 7) accredited Master’s program in late 2019. Last date of application was May 2020. Due to Covid related over-occupation, I dropped the idea of taking a course this year. One fine day, DMU franchisee contacted me and insisted I submit a late application if I'm still interested. I asked them a lot of pre-application questions, including the expected travel in 2nd Semester/Q1 of 2020. We had 6-7 email exchanges and they also called 2-3 times. I felt very motivated, changed my mind and I submitted a late application. Till date my application has not been replied, despite reminders. Few days back I got an email with access info to DMU library, and yesterday I got invitation to a webinar - the webinar is scheduled for 29 June and invitation comes on 2 July. I'm ignoring the recent emails (it could be spam). However, I'm disappointed with the process I went through with DMU contacts for the admission.
I am doing a part time GDL here distance learning over two years. It is good value for money and the study weekends are very good. The quality of the teaching is very high as is the study materials. There are some IT problems but they worked hard to resolve them. In relation to COVID19 the university I feel has been fair to everyone allowing online assessment which I have just completed this week. Given I have health issues, my health and well being is very important. I think the university have been fair and to be honest why would you want to sue them as others have said on here because it's a Force Majeure it's not their fault. 5 Star teaching. It may not be London or hip. It may not be a crème de la crème university but they have a fab law team here.
DMU has great facilities for design courses, the building is really nice. the workshop there is too small for the size of the university though. But their lecturers are very helpful
COVID 19 handled bad by lecturers with strikes how unfortunate our fees are not valued.
everything is perfect ，tutors are very passionate and friendly
Good university with great facilities, teaching is good. Nothing was really poor. Overall happy experience.
I was apprehensive about attending DMU as it was chosen through clearing for me , however my experience at the university has been pleasant so far.
Very good uni with great support
Really good university with good facilities. Offers load of support if you need it.
I'm suing De Montfort University for selling me a Mickey Mouse postgraduate Course not accredited not recognised as a teaching qualification. Comments welcome in Twitter syaa02
Its an amazing university in every aspect! I love the campus and my lecturers.
Love De Montfort! Super cultural and always has new experiences on offer
My uni is great. Offers great teaching, services and opportunities! The teaching and studying spaces are good, too.
Amazing so far! Apart from 3 weeks of lecturer strikes that held back out learning, everything has been good
Good uni not some work still need to be done but yh
They refused to give part-refunds after the coronovirus. Selfish, frustrating and unwilling to compromise. Everyone is struggling with the virus and they're not accomodating whatsoever.
Friendly staffs and beautiful campus.
Nice campus, everything is very close and together, Also relatively close to the city centre.
The university isn’t bad it’s just the accommodation (Ben Russell) the worst!
Love my open campus with beautiful architecture.
Great university facilities at hand
University is the best. Theres so much to offer. The staff are nice and friendly.
Great uni with broad range of facilities and staff which are passionate about their work
Good university and very diverse
WiFi is a bit picky at times, sometimes doesn't work. The physical aspect of DMU is great, but it doesn't help that they keep cutting funding to courses that aren't math/science/English because, as stereotypical views go, creative courses don't bring in money, which couldn't be more wrong. Get the funding aspect right and DMU would be a great university.
Not too bad, some areas need upgrading
While I'm not able to compare this University to others, I will say it is the best possible choice I could've made by coming here. I have enjoyed almost every minute of being here and I know that if I ever come to an issue I will be able to rely on staff and students to aid me.
Great experience, friendly atmosphere, lovely campus.
I enjoy university here at dmu
Upon coming to dmu, I have enjoyed my time, especially with getting involved with the DMU Jazz Band and being part of the committee, helping run the band and being able to play music as well.
Great experience and facilities. Could have better clubs and societies
Great WiFi lecturers are very knowledgeable and helpful
DMU is an excellent university with incredible teachers and lecturers. They treat all students fairly and equally and are very helpful when you feel the stress of studying. There are plenty of study spaces and lots of communities to join. It is a bit of a pain to connect to their internet but I'm not sure if it's them or my laptop (Or that I'm just useless with computers!). Overall DMU is a great establishment and would recommend to anyone that wishes to go into higher education.
Hardly get told of any social spaces or activities available
Unorganised university which is more interested on making things look pretty rather than improving services. I have had botched assessments, been assigned the wrong modules, to name the lease.
I’m not enjoying myself at all
Pretty good uni lecturers are helpful
There's many societies to join and if you can't find what you're looking for you can create your own! The only improvement I'd make is varying the employers brought in for careers fairs as when I went most of the employers were looking for law or finance students for internships/apprenticeships which isn't great if you study something else
Love the campus and the facilities available to get on with my various assignments. Most lecturers are friendly and keep lecture interesting. Don't personally use the union as I find drinks to be expensive when they do events and music to be generic r n b Lots of societies available
Everything I expected from the university experience just do not feel their is enough support for students
Not bad wouldn't exactly shout about it
The uni is very modern and has very good facilities.
the mentors and welfare have been great. However the wait times are really long and make it hard to manage work and mental health when there is a 14week wait for counciling. the course itself the facilities are really good and the workshops are well organised with knowledgeable staff
University has been a great experience and I have enjoyed my course as well as the social aspect.
Great campus and facilities accessible more often than needed. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Enjoying the uni so far, good social life, course is very interesting and the staff are very good.
DMU is an amazing university. The best staff and courses!
De Montfort is very good, if you want a studio. Do yourself a favour and go to code. Same rooms, cheaper and has better facilities
is a very good experience really enjoy it, but the student union is there but no actual use the su club isn't the best. there is a job centre for part-time or placement, but the centre isn't the best as it didn't really give a clear direction to what and how the centre work
i like it, there is nothing that i do not like at the moment,
Very good! I’m enjoying my time there.
The campus has all the facilities you'll ever need, from art stores, dining halls, to a 24hr Library plenty of computers and graphic tablets to use. There are a range of clubs and societies to choose. The SU always keep you up to date with the university, as well as the city itself. There is always help when you need it, especially when it comes to your career. The Wifi is very good, you have access to it throughout the whole campus; including gyms and youth centres.
Can’t get onto the WiFi and it’s slow, limited amount of societies there is nothing art based there for art and design students. Facilities are good for the building I study in. Students union can be helpful but in my class they aren’t, they don’t want to do or say anything in case of upsetting lecturers. Careers service from what I’ve experienced is great, there is a whole department for every course to go to and use, careers fairs, guidance they couldn’t be more helpful.
I don't attend any of the societies to know what they are like. The Student Union are hard to get ahold of, and don't seem to to anything. They have no sense of presence (not necessarily a bad thing, I hate unions) Everything else is decent.
I am an alumnus and i suggest, Never go for this university.
I entered the university as a student from a underrepresented and disadvantaged background, and I believe the university needs to develop an approach for identifying and reporting bullying. Some lecturers have been known to disregard or distort the negative impact of harmful behaviour, and blame or dehumanize the victim -- I was excluded from participating in the university as a whole during the first day.
I've never used the SU or careers service so can't comment on those. The clubs and societies don't feel very inclusive to new people (or at least the ones I tried), but that's a bit beyond the universities control really. Campus is nice, internat is incredible (hitting about 350mbps in the games labs)
Amazing universe, there are so many services and opportunities!
Good university but they were in the mid of building new areas which effected studying. Good course and student union was good, if not sticky underfoot.
Well specified uni, but more needs to be done to support students academically.
It’s really really really really good I recommend it to everyone I do!!!!!!!!!!!
Fantastic uni. Loved every minute and if I am ever in Leicester I always return and it feels like home.
