The First World War has an important place in the history of the University of Leicester. From 1914-1919 the site now occupied by the main campus was used as a military hospital. This exhibition tells the story of the hospital and explains how the origins of the University are rooted in the Great War.

The exhibition is accompanied by a growing directory of the men and women known to have served with the 5th Northern General Hospital during World War I. Visit the 5th Northern General Staff List pages for more information.
