Halls events and activities programme

Everything from cooking to karaoke. Find out more and get involved.

Welcome to our halls community

Find out about student living in Derby

Did you know that if you live in any of our halls you can join our halls events and activities programme?

Best of all, most events are free or subsidised, so even if you’re on a tight budget there’ll be something for you - things such as day trips to London, Harry Potter World or Alton Towers, cookery workshops, dance workshops, exercise classes, bingo and even the chance to pet an alpaca!

Get involved!

Last year we organised over 65 events across the year and engaged over 2,000 students. Oh and did we mention our satisfaction rate was 97%?!

Keep up-to-date with what’s going on through your hall Facebook page, the halls' Twitter page and our dedicated halls website. Make sure to check it out and see what we have going on. To find out more about what events we have on, check out the Derby events March - April 2019 and the Buxton events calendar March-April 2019.

"There really is something for everyone and, if you don’t spot anything you like, let us know and we will try our best to put it on! Our social reps, those jolly people in grey hoodies, can be found promoting and organising events and are eager to hear your suggestions. We hope to see you at one of our events very soon." Lisa Varley, Halls Events Co-ordinator

Could you be a Social Rep?

Being a Social Rep in your hall is a pretty good gig! You get paid to attend events and you get to know loads of people. Every year in the spring we recruit Social Reps for the following year. So if you're living in halls next year - this could be the job for you! Find out more about being a Social Rep.‌
