Student Accommodation at Durham University

Living at Durham University is much more than just a place to sleep and eat...

All University accommodation is based in one of our colleges and every Durham University student belongs to a college, whether you live in college or elsewhere. Our colleges offer a vibrant, supportive community full of opportunities for you to gain new experiences, develop skills to achieve more in your future life and most importantly, have fun while you're at it!

Through its colleges, the University provides...

  • A variety of accommodation and catering options.
  • Excellent facilities: for study, socialising, sport/fitness and day-to-day living.
  • Community: a small, friendly, 'ready-made' college community.
  • Comprehensive support system: to oversee your welfare, offering advice and guidance.
  • Extra-curricular opportunities: wide range of activities, complementing your department's academic provision.
  • Leadership opportunities: roles & responsibilities enabling you to run aspects of your college.
  • Academic community: an interdisciplinary community inspiring intellectual debate both informally and formally.
  • Events: regular student-led events, including balls, concerts, productions and more.

In addition, you can still enjoy all the features and facilities of a large, internationally-recognised University.

  • All teaching is delivered via your academic department but your college provides an environment which encourages and supports your studies and personal development.
