Its long history of excellent teaching, learning and research is founded in the technical and trade education of the late 19th Century. The name itself is associated with Simon De Montfort, Earl of Leicester, a distinguished figure in English history and credited with establishing the first parliament in 1265. Prior to 1992, De Montfort University was known as Leicester Polytechnic which was created in 1969. In 1992 De Montfort University was born. In 2001 the Lincolnshire campuses merged with the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside (creating the University of Lincoln), in 2003 De Montfort withdrew from Milton Keynes and recently The Faculty of Education & Contemporary Studies at the Bedford campus merged into the University of Luton to create a new university for Bedfordshire.
