    Hi all,

    If you are a Derby University student I wondered what your accommodation plans are for the 2013/14 academic year?

    Are you staying in University Halls? Are you going into private student houses? Are you staying at home and commuting?

    Who is still looking for accommodation for next year?

    Your help would be appreciated!

    Many thanks, Bel

    I haven't booked yet but will do on the next week or so ... Erm rooms are from £99 all ensuite .. The more people you share with the cheaper the price .. If you google Darley bank derby you can get accurate prices .. But I think it's definitely worth the money

    Yeah halls will probably be cheaper but think of the pluses
    -bigger ensuite instead a space shuttle
    -brand new - so we'll be the first people to live/eat/sleep in the rooms ..
    But at the end of the day it's your decision..

    What will you be studying??

    The only downside to them being is new is that you don't know the level of service you'll receive from the landlords & wardens. Another is you don't know how thick/thin the walls will be, how sturdy the furniture is, how quickly things will be fixed if broken, how the cleaners are... etc. That's why I stuck to halls, anyway.
