Location is a great middle ground for pretty much everything except the tram route, which I can deffo live with. Repetitiveness of halls dinners for sure knocks it down a peg or two, but the absolute best porter/warden teams. Thanks so much for looking after us so well.

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 is hit and miss. Combination of food each night is very random. Quality of meat is poor.

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

I've had a really great time living here. I have a shared study room which is great cause I love the person I share with. The hall is a nice distance from the rest of the campus and close to the bus stop into town.
