In 1921 we welcomed our first students. Our university had been founded in Leicester, funded by local people, as a living memorial to honour those who made sacrifices during the Great War. So that they may have life.
In academic year 2021/22 we celebrated 100 years since those first students started. Current students, alumni, current and former staff and the local community came together to mark this moment, to reflect on our past, and look ahead. The future is ours to change.
Commemorate our Centenary with a selection of clothing and gifts
