    It depends more on what sort of things you are looking for in terms of accommodation and people.
    Derwent is one of the colleges on the main campus, known for being social and having a lot of parties.
    Generally speaking the accommodation is not as nice as some of the other colleges (although this does mean that it is cheaper). I'm not aware of any catered Derwent accommodation (although please don't quote me on that). It also depends on what you are studying, as for a few courses you will spend all/most of your time on the other campus (walking takes ~15 mins, or 5 mins with bus).
    Edit: apparently half of Derwent gets catered accommodation
    Edit: Derwent also has some shared bedrooms if that's your sort of thing

    pretty much all of Derwent is catered except for a couple of blocks

    I'm guessing many people have applied already. Will I be late if I apply tomorrow hoping to get Derwent as my first choice?

    If you put all of derwent in all your choices you can't not be in derwent.
    Derwent is high demand but i think they consider all applications at the same time.
