Who doesn’t like the feeling of something new? The anticipation of waiting for your latest online order to arrive, excitedly unwrapping presents on your birthday and the pride of ripping off the tags and showcasing your new clothes; it just makes us feel great!

Well, if you’re studying in Derby for the 2019/20 academic year, we’ve got some good news…

What does Host The Croft have to offer?

The Croft offers all-inclusive living in a choice of three different room types: Premium En-suites, Large Premium En-suites and XL Premium En-suites. There is a total of 326 rooms, located across eight floors, arranged in 4-9 bed flats; perfect for sharing with friends and meeting new ones.

What about its location?

The University of Derby’s four Derby campuses are all just a short walk away from Host The Croft; meaning getting to lectures will take a matter of minutes.

The city centre itself is right on your doorstep too. From shops and food outlets, to bars and entertainment venues, you’ll find lots to see and do within walking distance of the accommodation.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
