Accommodation

Halls of Residence

Our halls of residence are a convenient base for anyone needing accommodation during their course, close to the city or town centre and within easy reach of our facilities.

You can choose between our small complex of apartments or immerse yourself in the full swing of student life by sharing with undergraduates in our larger and more traditional halls of residence.

Safe and secure with staff on site 24 hours a day, halls offer you cost-effective accommodation with electricity, gas, water, Wi-Fi and room contents insurance included in the price (£98.56-£144 per week for 2016/17). En-suite bedrooms are available, as are rooms suitable for anyone with a disability or medical condition.

Flamsteed Court, Derby

In a quiet residential area next to our Kedleston Road site, Flamsteed Court is a small complex of 30 two-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has free parking, two double en-suite rooms, an open plan kitchen/diner and lounge including a television (licence paid).

With the University’s library, Students’ Union and Sports Centre close at hand, you’ll also find bus stops for the city centre or local shops just a minute away. Across the road is Markeaton Park, popular for family or outdoor activities.

 

Private accommodation

If you’d prefer to rent a private property with your friends or by yourself, we can help you find the right place through our registered private housing scheme.

We work with the council and landlords to assess University-approved private accommodation to make sure properties meet the required standards, so you can be sure your home will be safe and comfortable.

We also offer Home Stay, where you live as a lodger in a family home. Here, you have your own room for privacy and share communal facilities.

 

If you have any questions about accommodation, contact us.

 

International students

There are lots of benefits to living in halls when you move to a foreign country.  All our halls are located near to the University, local shops, bars and restaurants. The University of Derby’s halls fees are all inclusive so you won’t have to pay any extra bills. 

Along with the staff at Derby’s award-winning International Student Centre, halls staff will make sure you settle into your new home and they are always on hand to help you with any issues you may have.  There is also a dedicated Halls Wellbeing Co-ordinator.

  • We guarantee a room in halls to international students who apply before 31 July for a September start
  • We guarantee “University approved” private accommodation for international students who apply before 31 August for a September start
  • Private landlords must adhere to the new ‘right to rent’ scheme for students on a visa.
