Press Office

The Press Office is responsible for managing the University of Derby's reputation and raising its profile.

We put forward academics, support staff and student representatives for 'expert comment' on different topics to local and national print, online and broadcast media. Our University blog showcases academic and staff expertise, research and knowledge across a whole host of interesting topics, and is a useful source of content for the media.

We are also responsible for producing the University's Annual Impact Report.

We aim to ensure that journalists get to the facts and the people they want in the shortest possible time.

All enquiries from media should be directed through the Press Office by emailing or calling 01332 591891 during office hours. For out-of-hours enquiries, please contact:

You can also find us on Twitter: @Derbyunipress
