If you are preparing to take up a post at the University, either in Durham or at Queen’s Campus, Stockton, or if you have recently arrived, I would like to welcome you on behalf of all my colleagues.
You will already know how diverse the University is - in terms of people, the working environment and in the range of activities that you and other staff are involved in. That is one of our great strengths. We aim to provide the best possible experience for our students, for visitors and for one another.
I greatly value the contribution that you will be making to this University. You will find in this set of web pages a lot of useful information and some signposts to help you get to know the University and your colleagues better. For those whose jobs are not in the Colleges – please read about them and how you might get involved with them. Find out about all the facilities and services that will enhance your life and work at the University.
Professor Christopher Higgins, Vice-Chancellor and Warden
The aim of these web pages is to help you access quickly the kind of information you will need to know during your first few weeks and months at Durham University. The pages act as a portal and will signpost you to other pages in the University's website where you can find more in-depth information.
