Why should you live with us?
So you’ve made the decision to do a postgraduate degree after a hectic few years of being an undergraduate… Now it's time to sort your accommodation. For somewhere with your own space, privacy, facilities and within reach of the University campus, look no further than Derwent Students Accommodation.
Firstly, all of your bills are included in your rent, so you won’t get any nasty surprises during your stay and can spend more time concentrating on earning your Masters Degree. You’ll also get fast free Wi-Fi so you can access all that you need for your work (or catch up on the latest episode of your favourite TV series). All rooms come with free contents insurance through Endsleigh Insurance so you can have full confidence that all your gadgets are safe. Your safety is a top priority for us, so Derwent buildings also have secure entry and CCTV. And last but not least, our focus is to ensure that you have the best experience you can. That’s why we have dedicated on-site management teams, maintenance teams and regular social events, all on hand to ensure that your stay with us runs as smooth as possible, giving you more time to enjoy your University experience and get the best degree grade possible.
En-Suite vs Studio?
If you're embarking on your Postgraduate studies, it is likely that you will be keen to have your own space with private shower room and kitchen facilities. A studio room would therefore be perfect for you. You have everything you could possibly need for when you need to work all hours to finish those slightly more arduous projects, without the worry of being disturbed. Alternatively, if you are looking to share a flat with friends or prefer to take time out from your studies and share your facilities with others, our en-suite rooms still come with your own bed, desk space and private shower room but enable you to share a kitchen and lounge area with others within a cluster flat.
Isn't private hall accommodation mostly for first year students?
Although you may be considering renting a room in a house through a private landlord after being an undergraduate, it is definitely worth considering private hall accommodation as a Postgraduate student. Your bills are included in your weekly rent meaning you don't have to worry about being hit by any unexpected costs and our buildings also offer on-site maintenance teams, for when you need a problem fixing quickly. Our accommodation has 24 hour security, on-site offices and free contents insurance so you are safe in the knowledge that you and your possessions are secure. Some of our buildings have study rooms and/or study booths as well as private studio apartments with your own space to live and study.
We know that the location of University accommodation is one of the most important things to our students, especially to our Postgrads who will be spending a lot of time on campus. Luckily, all of our buildings are in great locations, so it’s easy for you to get to university by either walking or catching the bus or tram, as well as close to the local shops and entertainment. Discounted travel is available for students on public transport in many of our cities too, even better!
Offering private, all-inclusive rooms and studios across our various locations, ideally positioned for University, Derwent Students has the perfect accommodation for all Postgraduate students.
