Read Derby Hall Reviews
For my year, definitely the most sociable halls on campus, with a good social spaces and the food is okay as far as catered halls go (albeit the combinations of cuisines they put are often completely bizarre), with echo bar offering cheap pints, decent pitchers and okay food (although the food's a little pricey). Location is second to none. Easy trip to campus and right next to the bus stop outside Lenton hall with the 36 straight into town and back again, but also only 5 mins walk from the gym. Halls management and porters are charming and honestly do their best in running the hall in an efficient manner; however, Derby halls greatest downfall are the Halls Tutors, who are supposedly there for pastoral care. Their very presence makes any room uncomfortable, and many have a complete power trip and like to reassert their authority at every opportunity. The 11pm curfew is a bit of a joke for Univeristy halls, however we've made a habit of making the common room more sociable.
Food quality is appalling. Fairly good location for most places (ie. Trent and Portland Building, DRSV, libraries). Cleaning staff are really nice and the receptionists are fairly nice. Social space and the library are tiny given how many people live in Derby. One of the ugliest halls by far
