Undergraduate Campus Tours

Campus Tours are a great way to explore our facilities and halls of residence to get a feel of what it is really like to be a student at Derby. It has been great to have so many of you visit us already in the last few months.

We will be holding a Campus Tour on Saturday 12 December. Derby City and Derbyshire is currently part of the tier 3 Covid alert level, due to the restrictions, you should only book a place on this date if you are from Derby City or Derbyshire.

We hope to resume Campus Tours for everyone throughout January.

How it works

Tours are led by our current students, who will tell you more about what it’s really like to be a student here and give you lots of information about Derby and all that it has to offer. You will have a two-hour time slot, which you can choose on the booking form

During this time you will have:

Although we won't be able to give you course-specific information on the day, you’ll find all you need to know if you search course information or take a look at subject videos from our recent Open Day Live production
