Construction of new Colleges progressing well

(6 June 2019)

As we grow the University, we want more of our students to live in Colleges, where they can benefit from a mixed community and dedicated support.

As part of this, two new Colleges are being built at the Mount Oswald site, in Durham City.

There will be a new home for our existing John Snow College, plus a brand new South College.

When will the new facilities be ready?

The work is progressing well. Builders started work on site in summer 2018, and the first of two blocks of townhouse-style accommodation at the new John Snow College has now reached its full height.

All the new facilities will be ready for October 2020.
