Facilities

Take a tour of some of the University's facilities

Derby excels with its student facilities, from access to Derby Theatre for Arts students, our industry-standard computing labs, a 350-person capacity Courtroom, and the expansive library at Kedleston Road.

We also offer our very own crime scene car and house sites for students taking one of our two Forensics courses, in a fully-monitoried facility shared with Derbyshire Constabulary.

As part of our Health courses, you can take advantage of a simulated hospital and radiography suite equipped with NHS standard clinical areas and the latest diagnostic and simulated learning equipment.

Students at Buxton Campus have access to our dedicated, 58-acre Outdoor and Adventure campus building, plus a climbing wall based at our Harpur Hill Sports Centre. Our partnership with the Peak District National Park Sailing Club means you can go canoeing and kayaking in the River Derwent and Combs Reservoir.
