Peace project

The year 2021 celebrates our centenary, marking 100 years of education at the University of Leicester. Let’s look back at our history and how we were founded as a living war memorial, ‘a palace of peace’, founding ideas that we proudly cherish.  

We are giving local schools and the local community the opportunity to visit our historic campus and discover the history of the University. The tours will explore the themes of peace and remembrance through visiting the University of Leicester’s campus, the Arch of Remembrance and Peace Walk in neighbouring Victoria Park.
