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

Once you've accepted your offer from the University of Derby, you can apply for halls. We recommend you apply soon after you've chosen Derby as your first choice University so that you have the best chance of getting the room type that you want. Don't worry though, we have plenty of rooms available and we guarantee a room to first-year and overseas students who apply by 31 July.

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.

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.
