Derby is a small and friendly city that offers a true home-from home. In the 2022 Global Student Living Awards, the University proudly won ‘Best University Housing’ and ‘Best Moving In Experience’ in the UK and Ireland, as voted for by students.
The sense of community that can be found in halls of residence is unrivalled, making it the perfect place to begin your student journey. You can immerse yourself in university life, gain that all-important independence and meet like-minded students who will become lifelong friends.
The University offers seven halls of residence, and all are conveniently located close to the city centre and to the teaching and learning spaces that are spread across Derby. All accommodation at the University of Derby is inclusive of bills, meaning you do not need to worry about hidden extra costs. The Student Living team are fully trained to help match you with suitable accommodation based on your preferences and requirements.
Halls of residence are a safe place to live, providing peace of mind to students who are new to the area or the UK. At the University of Derby, student wellbeing is the top priority, and all accommodation is installed with CCTV and an intercom entry system.
For students who make the University of Derby their first choice and apply for accommodation by 31 July, we can guarantee you a room in our award-winning halls of residence.
