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 looking forward to welcoming our new students 2017/18
June 2016 to July 2017 was our year of celebration events to mark our 10th Anniversary. Please have a look and see what we achieved.
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.
Butler is expanding! Please bear with us through the minor disruption whilst we modernise our site over the following year.
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.
