We also offer our very own crime scene car and house sites for students taking one of our two Forensics courses, in a fully-monitoried facility shared with Derbyshire Constabulary. As part of our Health courses, you can take advantage of a simulated hospital and radiography suite equipped with NHS standard clinical areas and the latest diagnostic and simulated learning equipment. Students at Buxton Campus have access to our dedicated, 58-acre Outdoor and Adventure campus building, plus a climbing wall based at our Harpur Hill Sports Centre. Our partnership with the Peak District National Park Sailing Club means you can go canoeing and kayaking in the River Derwent and Combs Reservoir.
University of Derby, is situated in the centre of the country. It's just off the M1 and on the main cross country rail line which connects Scotland to the south coast of England, and has a direct service to the new St Pancras station in London.
By Train: Both Derby and Buxton have train stations which are close to the campuses. You can get a taxi, bus or, for the Buxton Campus, walk from the station to the campus.
Most first year students live in halls - they're just a short walk from our campuses and a great place to make friends. They offer you safe, good value accommodation with other students. On the other hand, if you’d prefer to rent a private property, we can help you find the right place through our registered private housing scheme. Together with the Council and the landlord, we assess all the properties registered so you can be confident they’ll be safe and comfortable.
