for halls

Applications for halls are open to all Derby students, whether they are apprentices, new undergraduates, returners, internationals or local students. Applying for halls is really easy. You'll need your UCAS or student number to apply and you'll only have to pay £50 upfront to secure your booking. That £50 will be deducted from your first term's rent.

How to apply for halls

We allocate rooms on a first come, first served basis so later in the year halls that are full will not come up in the options menu when you apply. For January 2023, we still have some rooms available.  When you apply, you'll see what options and room types are still open to you.

All applications should be made online. You'll have the chance to tell us your room preferences when you apply and though we can't guarantee that you'll be offered your first choice of room, we will however do our best to meet your requirements from the choices you've made.

Apply for hallsThe benefits of living in university-owned halls

The sooner you apply, the greater the chance that you'll get your first room preference. We guarantee every first-year and overseas student a room in halls if they apply by 31 July. Unfortunately we can't make any guarantees for January arrivals as often halls are already quite full so there is less choice. When you apply, you should also tell us whether you want to live in a single or mixed-gender flat and if you have any particular requirements because of a medical condition.

When we've allocated you a room, we'll email you to let you know and we'll send you an offer of accommodation, so remember to check your emails regularly. To accept our offer of accommodation, you'll need to complete the online offer and accept it within ten working days.
