As a community to call home Durham University takes some beating with an unrivalled college system where you have the space and support to be who you want to be and to get involved in a whole range of activities, clubs and societies.
Each college is unique. This diversity allows students considerable choice to apply to a college which offers exactly what they are looking for.
Colleges vary in size and tradition, as well as in physical and non-physical structure. Whether large or small, traditional or modern, based at Queen's Campus or in Durham City, all colleges offer a supportive environment for students to engage in learning and to enjoy a wide range of social, sporting and cultural activities.
But what differentiates one College from another is the unique community of scholars that have developed within it over the years. Each college has created a distinct atmosphere in which students of all ages, nationalities and disciplines can flourish, not only academically but also as individuals.
