A new home for Art and Design at DMU

The recently completed Vijay Patel Building, a home for DMU’s art and design faculty, is the centrepiece of a £136 million Campus transformation project.

The building is split into three main areas – the Arts Tower, the Design Wing and the Food Court.

The Vijay Patel Building provides sector-leading facilities for art and design students. The Arts Tower accommodates the new Leicester School of Art which, together with the Design Wing, covers the full spectrum of visual arts, design and architecture. Students can make use of the new cutting-edge Digital Arts floor, an experimental space for new developments in visual culture, along with the excellent and much expanded facilities for traditional objective drawing, making it an unrivalled environment in which students can create and express.
