Staying in Derby

In 2023 students staying in Derby over the summer can stay at Princess Alice Court.

Advanced booking payment for summer stayers

If you are already living in halls, your original advanced booking payment will cover you for your extra stay over the summer. Otherwise, you will need to pay an advanced booking payment of £50 to secure your booking.

Summer car parking

Car parking at our halls over the summer will be £1.50 per day (up to 10 weeks), with a minimum charge of £21 or maximum of £70 for the whole summer.

Moving in

If you're already living in halls, you'll move into your summer room on or around the 11 July. All balances must be cleared before you can be a summer stayer. Before you move, you'll continue to pay your current rate for your room.
