De Montfort University opens new £1million sports centre for students

12 November 2015

 

De Montfort University has opened a new £1million home for societies and sports teams as part of its ongoing £136million campus redevelopment plan.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Dominic Shellard, together with the help of several students, cut the ribbon to launch The Watershed which will be the new home of meeting rooms, office space, a common room area, the sports hall and a designated training space for the DMU rowing club.

The building, which backs onto the River Soar, just off Upperton Road, will be able to cater for activities such as five-a-side football, badminton, netball, basketball, indoor hockey, indoor cricket and volleyball, as well as host meetings and activities for DMU’s 100-plus societies. Sports teams and societies will have the opportunity to influence the development of the second floor space, and the plans are currently being developed.

SI-UK's service is fast, reliable and efficient. Their consultants are specialists, working closely with all UK universities and, through my consultants' advice and application assistance, I was able to receive offers from my favoured universities.
