The Wyggeston Lodge becomes University Lodge

The Wyggeston Lodge became a University Lodge in April 2011 with the objective ‘To establish and/or enhance arrangements and opportunities for undergraduates and other University of Leicester members to enjoy Freemasonry’ as Oxbridge have done for nearly 200 years.

The Universities’ Scheme is run by the governing body of Freemasonry in England (United Grand Lodge of England) and headed by the Assistant Grand Master, David Williamson, who explains: “We know from these long-established university lodges that students – whether undergraduates or postgraduates – enjoy Freemasonry to the full. Through the Universities Scheme, we hope that university members from all over the country will be able to gain the same inspiration, fulfillment and enjoyment.”
