From the moment our residents arrive, we put every effort to put them at their ease, to help them feel welcome and to assist them in the practical tasks of moving in. We work hard on the logistics plan to make sure that the arrivals of hundreds of students and their families is a smooth operation from start to finish.

A great moving in experience

University of Derby hall of residence were recently announced as finalists in the Global Student Living Index awards. Based on the Autumn survey which took place in 2020, we were named award finalists for the Best Booking Experience and Best Moving In Experience.

The Global Student Living Index, (formerly known as the National Student Housing Survey) is one of the largest surveys on the quality of student accommodation in the UK and is completed by thousands of students across the UK. The survey focuses on all aspects of a student’s experience in their accommodation and the awards are directly based on the responses from students.

The University of Derby is no stranger to the awards and has scooped a number over the years including the Best Customer Service Award, Best Wellbeing Award and Best Environmental Management in 2019.

The overall winner for each award category will be announced in September.
