Campus Investments

Over the last 10 years we've invested over £150 million in our facilities to ensure that our students have access to some of the most modern teaching spaces in the country. Last year we invested £28 million in improving our campus infrastructure and teaching resources.

Cathedral court

City centre living for students

A new hall of residence close to Derby city centre opened in September 2016. Cathedral Court provides housing for more than 350 students and is the latest addition to the Derby Student Residences Limited (DSRL) portfolio. Another new hall of residence, Agard Court, is currently under construction next to One Friar Gate Square, home of Derby Law School, and will open in 2018.

Chesterfield Campus opens

Our new £6.9 million campus in Chesterfield was officially opened in October 2016. The Grade II listed building, formerly the St Helena Girls' Grammar School, provides modern facilities for health care, engineering, IT and business courses. It also includes an innovation centre with six business incubation units to support economic growth in the town.

New STEM Centre

A £12 million extension to Markeaton Street will provide an extra 4,200m2 of teaching space for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects. Practical teaching spaces will be available for our new MEng, electrical and electronics engineering, and computer networking programmes.
