Our 1960s buildings feature open corridor layouts which are great for socialising, and we organise numerous events from student-run club nights to ceilidh dancing in our large dining hall and bar.

As a Derwent member, you'll embrace tradition and welcome new experiences, fostering a strong sense of identity and college spirit. Our friendly and respectful ethos is reflected in the Derwent Global Community project, which will encourage you to consider world issues in order to make a positive contribution.

One of our students shared their experiences with us. Read their blog here.
