We start on the main campus with the Fielding Johnson Building which was the first university building, donated by local textile manufacturer Thomas Fielding Johnson in 1921 to form a university as a living memorial to those who lost their lives in the First World War. This central building now houses the University’s administration offices and Leicester Law School, which was used as a field hospital during WWI.
You can also briefly see the University’s skyline which is punctuated by three distinctive towering buildings from the 1960s: the Grade II* listed Engineering Building built by British architect Sir James Stirling, the central 18-storey Attenborough Tower and the Charles Wilson Building.
We then move onto glimpse one of our City Living student residences, Freemen’s Common. This is just a two minute walk away from our main campus and close to the city centre, which boasts great shopping, museums, cinemas, theatres and a whole range of bars, cafes and restaurants.
We then head over to our Oadby Student Village, which is just a short bus ride away from central campus. Located in the beautiful surroundings of our Botanic Garden, Oadby Student Village provides a true student community, housing approximately 1,800 residents with a range of fantastic facilities to provide a buzzing social life for all.
