Accommodation

Where to live 

You have a wide choice of where to live when you come to study at the University of Derby, either in University halls of residence or in private housing.

Halls of residence

Most first year students live in halls - they're just a short walk from our campuses and a great place to make friends. They offer you safe, good-value accommodation with other students.

If you’re thinking about living in halls, make sure you take some time to find out about your options and visit us at an Open Day to take a tour of some accommodation.

At our Open Days, you can chat with our Student Living staff who will have stands at all our sites on the day. They will be able to answer your questions and give you details about the accommodation tours.

Local students living in halls

We asked local students why they chose to live in halls.

  • 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
