Campus and Facilities

About the campus

The University of Leicester’s history plays a big role in its approach to education and research, but that doesn’t mean the campus is old-fashioned! The University’s motto ‘So they might have life’ sums up its modus operandi: supporting and empowering future generations through education and research.

The main campus is just a mile south of the city centre, adjacent to Victoria Park. Many of the campus’ buildings tell a story of the University’s and local areas’ past while also providing cutting-edge facilities, such as Leicester Law School in the Fielding Johnson Building and the School of Engineering.

The David Wilson Library is at the heart of campus and has over one million printed volumes. Here you’ll find hundreds of computers, study rooms and a digital, interactive Reading Room – as well as its own café for reading, studying or relaxing.

Based near to the University of Leicester campus, the Global Study Centre students will have access to all of the University’s facilities and be a part of the campus community from day one.
