I love the fact that Durham City is small enough for me to walk wherever I need. It's a gorgeous place to live and the scenery never fails to brighten my day.Maroshini Krishna Morgan, Law student
One of the first things you notice about Queen's Campus is the warm welcoming sense of community. The whole place has a genuinely friendly feel, and because the Campus is reasonably small, you can get to know everyone.Charles Mott, Stephenson College
