DMU Campus centre to re-open on Wednesday

By Alex Murray

De Montfort University will open their new campus centre on Wednesday after refurbishment work has been completed.

The re-opening of the centre has been long awaited, as work continues around the De Montfort campus as part of the £136 million pound investment into the site.

It will reopen on Wednesday at 3pm. There will be a speech by the DSU president Dan Winney and DMU Vice Chancellor Dominic Shellard. There will also be performances by a couple of SU societies.


The new refurbishments see more spaces for students to relax, eat and socialise with friends. The student union took feedback from students into account when deciding how to spend their £3 million grant they were given to transform the site.

Owen Boore, a computer security student, said:  “I’m excited to see it finally open, especially as it seems to have been under construction since I started here.”

Josh Mayo, who studies computer science, said: “The new building looks like a great place to chill and to complete work, I will be using it a lot.”
