Starting in January

There will be rooms available in halls for our January starters, across all halls depending on where vacancies have become available. When applying you should tell us what your room preference is, rather than a preferred hall and we will try to allocate you a room based on that criteria. Please be aware that there is less availability of rooms in January as most students have already arrived in September.

January starters

If you are starting a course at the University of Derby in January, you will usually be able to apply for a room in halls from November. If you have a firm offer of a place at the University of Derby, the Admissions team will contact you with your student ID number. Once you have this and January halls applications are open, you can apply online for a room in halls.

Nearer your time of arrival, you will need to book an arrival slot, via your Student Living account. When you arrive you will need to go straight to your hall at the date and time of your arrival slot and you will need to ensure that you have finished moving in by the end of your slot so others can move in after you. Watch this page for further updates.

We look forward to welcoming you in January.
