Heritage Centre: About DMU Heritage Centre

Heritage Centre

Built around the medieval arches of the Church of the Annunciation, De Montfort University’s Heritage Centre showcases the rich history that surrounds our campus and tells the story of the University and its contribution to teaching, research and the lives of our students over 145 years.

The Heritage Centre also showcases the inspiring achievements of DMU staff and students, past and present.  This changing space recognises accomplishments and reflects the University’s pride in the skills and knowledge developed at DMU.
