One of the things a lot of students love about studying in Derby is the eclectic mix of city and country life. You’ve got all the fun things to do and interesting things to see, as well as the convenience of a thriving city centre – especially if you’re staying at our student accommodation in Derby – but also, incredible scenery of the nearby Peak District to enjoy when you need some downtime.

Of course, this isn’t at the expense of some excellent nightlife. While you’re studying in Derby, you’ve got no end of amazing student nights to take your pick from. Whether you’re into something low key or love partying until it’s light out again, we’ve done the hard work and found the best student nights in Derby for every night of the week.

And if you’re staying in our student accommodation in Derby, you can party knowing that, at the end of a brilliant night, you’ve got the luxury of your own studio space to get home to. With a comfy bed and stylish en-suite, you’ll be refreshed and ready to enjoy the next big night out in Derby.

Thursday: The Bless

A team from the student union usually attends the pub quiz at The Bless on a Wednesday, however we think the Thursday Dog Bingo night is well worth a trip too. You don’t need to bring a dog to take part, but it is an opportunity to enjoy a good old fashioned game of bingo with your friends and maybe get to play with some furry friends too. There’s also prizes (for dogs as well as their humans) to be won, and all in the comfort of a cosy local pub that is more than welcoming to students, with all money raised from entrance fees going to Dog Team UK and the RSPCA on Abbey Street.

Where: DE1 3GU
Distance: Less than 10 minute walk*
Entry: From £2
Collegiate Recommends: Best for game nights

Playing a huge mix of dance, party anthems, R&B and grime, you’re sure to find the vibe that gets you dancing. If you get you and your friends on the guestlist, you can enjoy £1 entry before 11:30pm although they do offer late entry until 2am, so you can enjoy your favourite city centre bars beforehand without worrying about rushing over to beat the queues.

Where: DE1 1QT
