I only know about halls of residence, so I'll tell you about those. Derby has a wide variety of accommodation with appropriate rice ranges for each. There are Standard, Standard plus, en-suite and en-suite plus rooms available. The halls are clean, managed 24 hours a day and there's always someone you can call or talk to if you need help. If the person you talk to can't help you themselves they should be able to point you in the direction of someone who can. You can choose between living in a single or mixed gender flat and there is always a choice of sites depending on where you study and how close you want to be to the city center. I've lived in halls every year I've been at Uni, so if you decide you like it you can go back and even choose to live with friends if you all book together.
