We have approximately 400 single, ensuite study bedrooms at Josephine Butler. These are organised into flats of six with a shared kitchen. Uniquely for the colleges in Durham, all Josephine Butler bedrooms are ensuite, with a shower, sink and toilet.
All undergraduate freshers are expected to live in College during their first year.
Each study bedroom has:
- Computer Network Point (ESOL - EnSuite On-Line)
- Television Aerial Socket(*)
- Desk and desk chair
- Desk lamp
- Drawer Unit
A typical bedroom is about 4.60 metres by 2.60 metres (including the en-suite pod). There are a number of larger rooms designed for students with disabilities - please make sure the Vice Principal is aware of any special needs you may have which could affect your allocation of room (e.g. wheelchair user).
(*) Note - if you have a television in your room, you will need a separate TV licence for it. We recommend students put a shared television in the kitchen/lounge area and purchase a licence together, rather than have an individual television and licence.
