Every Durham University postgraduate student is a member of a college - a supportive, diverse community of students and staff from across the University. Whether you live in college, or 'out' in town or in your own home, you still benefit from the services and opportunities on offer in your college.

Grey welcomes applications from postgraduates of all disciplines for membership. We have a growing population of postgraduate students of around 50 students and provide good accomodation to a high standard with self-catering facilities if required. All postgraduates are assigned a College Mentor who will support you through your time with us. There is more information for postgraduates on the Middle Common Room web pages.
We have around one hundred and fifty international students, studying for both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
Postgraduate students are an important part of the College. Together with visiting academics, and local University staff who are members of the SCR, their presence is central in a College that is part of a research-led University. The College encourages interactions between SCR and MCR, between postgraduate students of different backgrounds and disciplines, and between visiting Fellows and postgraduates. A number of events, including a termly seminar series attended by members of all common rooms, that allows postgradutes the chance to discuss their research, are organized by the College to promote these interactions and to provide convivial opportunities for the local research community to meet each other and socialise.
