New students starting in September

Halls of residence are the first choice for first year, foundation and overseas students. Halls are a great introduction to University life and they are the ideal place to make friends with other new students like you.

Applications starting in September

If you are starting a course at the University of Derby in September 2024, you can apply for halls from the end of October/early November. Please be aware that you will have to pay the £50 deposit to complete the process.

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 halls applications are open, you can apply online for a room in halls.

What if Derby is my insurance choice?

If Derby is your insurance choice you won’t be able to apply for halls. If the situation changes after you get your exam results and you end up coming to Derby, you can apply for halls once you get your firm offer.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience

Living in halls is a great experience and a fantastic way to make friends and settle into University life.
