: Foundation of Queen’s Campus
University College, Stockton on Tees, opened to students in October 1992 offering joint qualifications of the Universities of Durham and of Teesside. It was established in partnership with the University of Teesside and the Teesside Development Corporation. In 1994 the Privy Council approved its status as a residential and teaching college of the University of Durham. Since 1996, by agreement between the two Universities, the students have been studying for University of Durham degrees. In 2001 John Snow College and George Stephenson College were established. In recognition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee in 2002 and the tenth anniversary of the Stockton campus, Her Majesty gave permission for the University to change its title from University of Durham, Stockton Campus to Queen's Campus.
