Your licence agreement allows you to stay in College for the academic year with two exceptions:

CHRISTMAS CLOSING AND BEDROOM BUY BACK SCHEME

Christmas vacation: The College, and University, closes for the Christmas vacation including the week up to New Year. Students who choose to stay in Durham during this period can sign up to move to another College a short distance from Josephine Butler. Details of how to apply and when to apply for this will be provided soon after the start of term.

During the Easter vacation the College hosts post-application open days. In order to provide these students with the full College experience we ‘buy back’ student bedrooms in Milfield to accommodate them. The details of the scheme will be provided soon after the start of term.

You may also have seen this information in your residence agreement.

The College is self-catering, so you should budget for food as well as the usual of books, laundry and travel expenses (...oh, and a small budget for going out!)

There are various packages of support for students, including the Durham Grant Scheme - you may also wish to talk to the Senior Tutor & Vice-Principal about financial support.

Early Departures - The University has decided that no refunds can be given to students who leave before the end of the academic year.
