Why do local students live in halls?

two students talking in room

"I moved into halls to get the experience of living on my own. I'm really enjoying it." Ryan Wright, First year Graphic Design student from Spondon in Derby

We asked local students why they chose to live in halls.  These were the main reasons they gave:

  • I didn't want to miss out on the halls experience
  • Halls is still the best way to make friends
  • I like being independent
  • Commuting is really tiring
  • My transport costs would have been massive

all this plus the usual benefits.
