Universities Scheme

We are very proud to participate in the United Grand Lodge of England Universities Scheme and we are the designated Lodge for University of Leicester students, staff and alumni.

We have a vibrant student membership and are keen to help them develop their interest in Freemasonry and to derive the maximum enjoyment from being a Mason.

The Universities Scheme was introduced in 2005 with the objective ‘To establish and/or enhance arrangements and opportunities for undergraduates and other university members to enjoy Freemasonry’ as Oxford and Cambridge have done for nearly 200 years.

There are now over 70 Universities Scheme Lodges across England, Wales and Overseas Districts.

The Grand Master, HRH the Duke of Kent, states “A real benefit the Scheme confers is having young intelligent men joining us who will, we hope, contribute greatly to the future of the Craft, as potential leaders and sources of inspiration.”
