De Montfort University Volunteering

Volunteering at De Montfort University as a graduate is a fantastic way to stay connected to the University whilst making a huge difference to current and prospective students. Former students can offer an insight into life after graduation and provide a network for students who may not have friends or family who have attended University or are in their chosen career.

However much time you can give, or whatever expertise you have to share, there’s a volunteering opportunity for you, and we’d love to help you work with us.

If you are a graduate of De Montfort University, or any of our predecessor institutions, and would like to volunteer with us, please complete our online form to express your interest.

If there isn’t a current volunteer opportunity available at the moment, we’re sure something will come up in the future that will suit your availability and interests. We’ll contact you by email with the latest events and activities.
