Student Affairs

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 extracurricular activities.   There are countless student clubs and organizations, as well as intramural sports, to help students take a break from studying.

Student life at Des Moines University has a firm commitment to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students.  On campus and off, there is a wealth of events and activities to expand your educational, social and service opportunities.

The campus itself has been designed with students in mind. We strive to make students feel at home. The Student Education Center features comfortable, informal study areas, a student lounge, coffee bar and cafe. It has even been dubbed DMU’s living room.  As well, our state-of-the-art 25,000 square foot Wellness Center, located in the Student Education Center, is open daily and provides extensive opportunities to meet your health needs.

We hope that our website will answer many of your questions and show you what DMU has to offer.  If you have any questions, concerns and/or ideas, do not hesitate to contact Student Services directly at 515-271-1440.  On behalf of all of us in Student Services, we look forward to supporting you throughout your academic journey at Des Moines University!
