Fees & Finance
STUDENT RESIDENCE AND OTHER CHARGES
The prices which follow are for first year undergraduate students starting their programme of study in 2012/13
Accommodation licences are based on 39 week lets for Freshers (which includes Fresher's Week). Charges are listed below.
Your licence agreement allows you to stay in College for the academic year with two exceptions :
Christmas vacation : The College, and University, closes for the Christmas vacation including the week up to New Year. Students who choose to stay in Durham during this period can sign up to move to another College a short distance from Josephine Butler.
Easter vacation : Included in your licence agreement will be a 'buy back' option where the College can buy your bedroom back to accommodate Open Day Students. This usually occurs on the first Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of the Easter vacation though dates may change. This is usually done on a sign up system, however we do reserve the right to nominate rooms for those in some residential blocks when necessary.
The College is self-catering, so you should budget for food as well as the usual of books, laundry and travel expenses (...oh, and a small budget for going out!)
