The benefits of living in halls

Live in Derby halls and get the full 'University experience'.  Our award-winning accommodation offers a wide choice of rooms, a safe and secure environment and excellent wellbeing and customer support. Join our vibrant student community, make new friends, take part in our halls events and make the most of student life.

Living student life to the full

Living in halls gives you the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people, build your self-confidence and live independently, maybe for the first time. You'll have the chance to meet new people, try new things and broaden your horizons. The events organised by the halls social team will put you in touch with other students in the halls community and you'll be able to take part in lots of free or subsidised activities with them.

Everything from quizzes, bingo nights and cookery classes, to day trips, inter-hall tournaments, and outdoor activities like paddleboarding and goat yoga. In addition, every undergraduate hall has a common room with shared facilities like Playstation 4, table tennis, and pool which are free to use. You and your flatmates can even book the room out for your own gathering!
