University of Leicester

The University was founded as Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland University College in 1921. Our very compact campus contains a wide range of twentieth century architecture, though the oldest building dates from 1837. The main campus is a mile south of the city centre, adjacent to Victoria Park and Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College.

Our Values

Our three new values which run through the heart of our strategy are:

Inclusive: We are diverse in our makeup and united in ambition. Our diversity is our strength and makes our community stronger.
Inspiring: We are passionate about inspiring individuals to succeed and realise their ambitions. We challenge our community to think differently, to get involved, and to constantly embrace new ideas.
Impactful: As Citizens of Change we will generate new ideas which deliver impact and empower our community.

Our Guiding Principles

Our four guiding principles will be used to inform our decision-making. We will test the different priorities of the University against these important principles: our people through considering health and wellbeing and equality and diversity, the environment to ensure we make responsible decisions for future generations and our performance to ensure we are financially sustainable and operate effectively. By doing this we will be more transparent in our approach, demonstrate integrity, and empower people to make a positive difference.

Our mission

"Diverse in our make-up and united in our ambition we change lives through education and research"

Our vision

"We will provide inspiring education and research working in partnership with our communities to become a truly inclusive university"
