The DMU campus is a close-knit, collaborative environment that allows students to learn and share ideas while enjoying themselves and forging lifelong friendships. DMU offers many opportunities for students to get involved in experiences outside the classroom.  

There are countless student clubs and organizations, as well as intramural sports sponsored by our state-of-the-art Wellness Center, to help students take a break from studying.

Des Moines University has a firm commitment to providing a safe, inclusive and service oriented environment for all students through rewarding programs and a dedicated staff and faculty.  On campus or throughout the great city of Des Moines, there is a wealth of events and activities to expand your educational, social and service opportunities.
