OUR MOTTO: "Comme Je Trouve - We take life as we find it, and make of it what we can."
Welcome to Josephine Butler College - We are now officially 10 years old.
June 2016 to July 2017 is our year of celebration events to mark our 10th Anniversary . Please have a look and see what we have planned.
As Durham's youngest College having opened in 2006, we are free-spirited, flourishing and full of life. We have a vibrant, inclusive community of around 800 students from a variety of backgrounds and encourage all our students to get involved with our pioneering spirit.
Why choose Butler?
- Inspiration and opportunity: We are always open to new ideas giving you the inspiration and the opportunity to be as innovative as you want to be and make things happen.
- Excellent support: Our outstanding college mentor system (rated as excellent by our students) means you have all the support you need to make the most of your time at University.
- Traditions with a twist: We take pride in keeping up some of the University's oldest traditions, giving them our own unique Josephine Butler twist.
Who are we?
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 is a fully en-suite, self-catering College.
Butler Mascot - the Mole
You can now buy our beautiful luxurious fur Josephine Butler Mole mascot to have and to treasure forever as your reminder of your time at Josephine Butler College. Why not buy it as a gift for a friend or treat yourself to one for your room or if you are graduating ask your Parents for it as a gift.

Butler is beautiful, shiny and new. It has a good mix of people from all walks of life and you really get a sense that things are there for the taking if you want it as students run most of the day to day activities. Butler is simply wonderful!Student Experience Survey
