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 in one of York's oldest colleges.

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