St. Christopher’s court have a friendly team who are always there to help when you need it. The social area is big and full of things to do as well as the the outdoor spaces being a great place to socialise. The bedrooms are nice and big and the kitchens have enough space for all my things.

There should be more events at SCC. Nothing is ever here. Also, more international students interaction/events related. Besides that, everything is great. Management and staff are great!! Would like to kindly say a special thank you to Angie, Kim, Kelvin, Adam and RA Elise! Thank you for making this year at St. Christopher’s Court even better!! See you all soon!

Due to it being the COVID year when I stayed here, social spaces like the common room were closed. Kitchens are also extremely small and hard to be sociable in ,which meant making friends within st Christopher’s was very difficult. The location also isn’t the best as it’s very far away from all of the other university halls. All the others are basically all in the same place whereas st Christopher’s is a bit further out. Also the unibusses to st Christopher’s are at a highly reduced schedule in comparison to the other uni halls, the last bus from th keddleston campus being at 5:30, for example, when busses to other halls go until around 8/9ish.

I studied at the University of Derby in the early 00's, and lived at St Christopher's in 200/01. From the sound of other reviews, it doesn't sound like it's changed much, although we had to pay extra for the WiFi back then ☺️. Anyway, I liked it, very easy to make new friends, an easy walk from the uni, very close to town, and the common room was good for socialising. Also, nice, helpful staff, the security staff were very helpful in helping me and my friend out with a minor crisis once. I'd of recommended it then, and it's good that it's still well liked now

Had a great time, you'd love it if you're a party animal! Although some blocks (such as the blocks with the en-suite flats) are normally quieter if you prefer to not have all the ruckus. Staff are always on-call if you need to make a noise complaint, and they always get down to it :) Plus, the showers have great water pressure!

Expensive and the cleaner doesn't actually clean that much up. The location is decent as it is close enough to walk to town and the university. The common room is a great area however theres only one room for everyone and theres no living rooms in each flat.

Was one of my worst experinces i was bullied my first year of university in those halls and the manager never believed me. It was dirty all the time since no one would clean and i had to go through my student union before i could finally be moved to lonsdale hall which was a 40min walk to the campus. My bad flat mates got to stay.
