De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) is an independent, student-run and student-led organisation. We are a separate limited company and registered charity to De Montfort University (DMU) but represent the 27,000 students studying there. A students’ union is part of the community of its university. Each year, students (our members) elect leaders to represent them to the university and DSU staff help them do this to the best of their ability as well as mentor, facilitate and contribute to the day-to-day life of students.
Our purpose is simple: to improve the experience and education of our members, the students of DMU. We do this through activities, expert advice, democratic representation, opportunities, and our social venues.
We’re on the cusp of creating our new strategy, have a brand-new three-year vision for our commercial facilities and have begun an EDI plan to act as the foundation for all our student-facing and team-facing work.
There’s never been a more exciting moment to join DSU.
