Arriving

Tell us when you're coming

All January starters including UK home students, international students, returners and Nottingham students need to let us know when they intend to arrive at their hall. When you accepted your offer you should have indicated this to us. Please note that different courses may have different start dates, but the University will contact you directly to let you know the start date of your course, so you know when you need to arrive. You will be charged from your arrival date.

UK arrivals 

Go straight to your hall at the stated time of your arrival. If the hall has a car park you'll be able to park there for a short time but then you'll need to move the car to another car park. If your hall doesn't have a car park, don't worry there are plenty of places to park nearby. Places to park near halls.

International arrivals 

If you are an overseas student please go to Sir Peter Hilton Court on arrival at Derby. The address is Sir Peter Hilton Court, Agard Street, Derby DE1 1RG. This will enable our team to provide you with the correct advice based on the latest government guidance.

Office opening times

We have staff at our halls 24 hours a day over the Christmas period. However, please note that hall offices will be closed for the Christmas holidays from 5pm on Friday 18 December until 9am on 4 January. This means that there will be reduced staffing at our halls over that period. If you arrive during the Christmas holiday period or outside of office hours please ring the 24 hour hall mobile number to let staff know you’ve arrived. The mobile numbers for each hall can be found with our contact details.
