Based in the newly-renovated Campus Centre, De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) is run by students for students and aims to represent, inspire and involve all its members.
The new-look Campus Centre is a hub for student life. On the ground floor, visitors can eat or drink at a café selling Starbucks coffee, at Subway or at Milly Lane’s, the campus’ newest eatery run by DSU, selling freshly handmade hot and cold food, coffee and smoothies.
But the DSU isn't just about what goes on in the Campus Centre, there are a huge amount of sports clubs and societies for you to get involved with, and you can join as many as you want, from football and rugby to rowing and gaming, as well as the International Students' Society.
You can join the award-winning Demon Media, which runs the Demon FM student radio station broadcasting live to the city around the year, the Demon student newspaper, and Demon TV, an online channel covering everything from Varsity to live music.
Getting involved doesn't stop there. More than 2,000 students gave their time and volunteered to help the community last year. You could become a course or faculty rep, or take part in the spring elections with roles ranging from student officers and trustees to five executive posts.
Pop into the DSU shop, SUpplies, on the ground floor of the Campus Centre for all your university essentials, including the all-important DMU hoody. Get your PC or laptop serviced at the DSU tech shop, which aims to be cheaper and faster than the big chain stores. When you're looking for your student digs visit SULETS, the DSU's accommodation agency, for safe and secure housing with easy to understand contracts and no agency fees.
The Welfare and Education Centre offers confidential advice and guidance on a range of subjects. We were awarded the Community Legal Services Quality Mark in 2008 and passed a recent audit with flying colours. Whether you have a dispute with a landlord, a complaint about the university, need representation in an academic appeal, or free advice and assistance with your visa, the DSU can help.
