Every evening there is a varied programme of clubs, organised activities, sports and weekly discos you can choose to do while living at Derwen. Or you can relax in our Wi-Fi café, or in your house with your friends.
We have a range of modern, spacious accommodation to suit different needs, including houses in the centre of the campus, a bungalow site alongside the college and, if and when you are ready for the step to even greater independence, the chance to live off campus.
In your accommodation, you will learn to look after yourself with all the support you need. You will have opportunities to cook and learn about healthy lifestyles. You will be supported to explore the local and wider community, develop road safety and travel skills and explore aspects of personal and social development and citizenship.
At the weekend there is always a selection of trips to entertain you. Theatre trips, football matches, train rides, stately homes, museums or shopping, whatever your interests are you’ll find something to suit you.
