Congratulations on securing your place at the University of Derby. We're delighted you have chosen to study with us and wish you a very warm welcome. The first few weeks of university can be packed with information, so we've created these pages to help you navigate your first few weeks.

If you're a new student, you can find out what you need to know before you arrive, including information about moving into halls and enrolment and induction, as well as useful information about what to expect in your first few weeks.

We've also created a dedicated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) area to help answer all your queries.

Applying for halls

Applications for halls are open to all Derby students, whether you are apprentices, new undergraduates, returners, or local students. Applying for halls is really easy. You'll need your UCAS or student number to apply and you'll only have to pay £50 upfront to secure your booking.
