Centenary: Our beginning

On 11 November 2018 (Armistice Day), we mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. This date also marks the beginning of the story to create a university in Leicester as a living memorial to honour those who made sacrifices during the Great War.

Our motto – Ut vitam habeant, so that they may have life – stands as a permanent reminder of that story and our legacy.
