Pocket Guide: Leicester University of Leicester Hotels

Receiving official University Status in 1957, the University of Leicester is a well-regarded public research institution that has achieved good rankings in national university league tables. Leicester was originally home to the Leicestershire and Rutland University College in the early 19th Century, which began admitting students soon after the First World War, and was renamed as University College, Leicester, in 1927, before becoming a fully-fledged university. Today, it's close to plenty of affordable and high-end hotels and bed and breakfasts in the centre of Leicester and its outer-lying districts.

Famous for Inventing DNA Fingerprinting

On September 10th 1984, the University of Leicester created the first genetic fingerprint in the world, opening up novel opportunities for scientific and medical advancement. It was pioneered by Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, who received a knighthood in 1994 for his contribution to genetic research, describing the moment he discovered DNA fingerprinting as a 'eureka moment'.
