Kedleston Road

Kedleston Road is our biggest site and is where many of our courses are taught. It lies on the edge of Derby, just opposite a huge public park.

As our biggest site, Kedleston Road is the main student hub where students can find the doctor's surgery, Multi-Faith Centre, the largest of our university libraries and Basecamp - the Union of Students' social space, used as a chill-out area by both students and staff. The site is a 30 minute walk to the city centre, or 14 minutes on our Unibus service. 

It is also home to our newly refurbished, £10.8 million Sports Centre which doubles up as a Human Performance Unit (HPU). For those taking Health Care subjects, we're proud to have an NHS-standard hospital ward where students gain a real sense of what it would be like to work in a modern hospital. Within this hospital is a mock labour room allowing Midwifery students to receive immersive training that replicates real life.
