Josephine Butler

Josephine Butler College

Welcome to Butler!

As Durham's youngest College having opened in 2006, we are free-spirited, flourishing and full of life. We are named after the 19th Century social reformer, Josephine Butler, who had a profound influence on society's view of women's health and education. Butler has a vibrant, inclusive community from a variety of backgrounds and encourage all our students to get involved with our pioneering spirit and we pride ourselves on inspiration, opportunity and excellent support.
