Read Laverstoke Court Reviews
Everyone I know who has visited more than just one halls of residence in Derby has said that Laverstoke is the best one. If you're willing to sacrifice an en-suite, you'll find that your room is bigger than what you'd normally get - plus an extra £400 each semester. Just off town and a 5-10 minute walk from most of the popular bars and clubs - the only downside to the location is that it's a long walk from the Uni, despite the bus stop being only 100 metres away. The hall management is fair. Nothing too intrusive, though mandatory checks take place - the RA's are always friendly and have a nice chat when doing kitchen checks. Could do without the fire alarm test taking place on Friday at 10am - students deserve a lie-in on their days off! Wi-fi changes between fast and slow speeds depending on how many people are using it. One of the biggest perks is the social spaces, boasting both large kitchens and living areas - most other halls don't have a shared living area.
It may have been put together last minute and a bit broken, and the bathrooms were horrid, but the small cramped halls gave a real sense of community. Being so close together in such a small halls really kept everyone together and I loved my time there!
