Accommodation is provided in single study-bedrooms in hostels of ten rooms – five to a floor. Each hostel has a kitchen/lounge area with TV, microwave, kettle and fridge.
Rooms are fully furnished and have washbasins. Each floor has toilets and bath/shower rooms. Free wi-fi is available and there are a number of laptops available for loan too.
Residential Wardens are on duty in the evening and overnight for support, with the Campus Operations Residential Services Manager and a day warden being the named contact for residential issues in the day.
You are required to provide your own bed linen, pillows and kitchen utensils.
You will take your meals in the main cafeteria. A £11 per day meal allowance – allowing for three meals – is included in the accommodation cost.
Recreational facilities are available in the Students’ Union, with sports facilities such as the gym and climbing wall open at given times and/or by arrangement. Transport can also be organised to off-campus activities.
Accommodation fees for 2017/18 are yet to be confirmed. As a guide, the fees for 2016/17 were £4,500 for the whole academic year, including the £11 per day meal allowance. A £200 deposit is required to secure the room.
If you need help with accommodation costs, you can apply for support via our Residential Bursary Fund which is assessed on your household disposable income.
Full details of the support and a breakdown of payments will be provided after we have received your bursary application. You may also be entitled to further help from the Discretionary Learner Support Fund.
If you, your parents or guardians would like to see the accommodation, you can do so during the open events we hold throughout the year. Alternatively, you can make a separate appointment.
Applications can be made once you have received an official letter from Derby College offering you a place on a course.
Please note that our accommodation is only for those learners who can live independently as we have no provision for individuals who need specialist medical or nursing care.
Priority is given to learners on land-based and other specialist study programmes – such as Golf Academy courses – and we take into consideration travel-to-College times.

We are treated as adults and it is great to get more independence. But there is always someone to turn to if you have a problem and I always feel very safe here.

It’s like one big family everybody's very supportive and friendly. There are always plenty of activities to do to keep you occupied.

I like living in halls as you can meet lifelong friends and enjoy really good experiences including lambing, sports and rock climbing. All the Wardens are very supportive and I always feel safe.

I found out about the Academy but there was no way I could travel here every day so the accommodation provided is ideal.
I come back either on a Sunday night or first thing Monday morning and then go home on Friday afternoon so it is the best of both worlds.
We have single rooms so you can have your own privacy but it is great to meet up with people on other courses in the evenings and I enjoy heading back up to the golf range to get in some extra practice.
Our support for residential learners was graded ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in October 2014
