Every Durham University student belongs to a college - a vibrant, supportive community full of opportunities for you to gain new experiences, develop skills to achieve more in your future life and most importantly, have fun while you're at it!
At Durham University, you not only choose a programme of study, you also choose a college. Each college has its own distinctive character defined by its buildings, traditions and people - each offers an excellent range of facilities for study, sports, socialising and relaxing.
