We are updating these webpages with information and guidance on a regular basis to reflect the latest government advice. Please use the pages below to access the information most relevant to you.

We urge our entire community to follow government guidance to stay where you are.

The vast majority of our learning and student enrichment activities will continue to be offered online only for the remainder of Epiphany Term (Term 2), as planned.

Easter Term starts on 26 April. We ask students not to come back to Durham ahead of that date or before government gives consent, unless it is essential you do so to support your educational needs. We expect revision and teaching activity in the Easter Term to be a blend of face-to-face and online

We will ensure that students receive a first-rate education and achieve their learning outcomes on time, and that students are not disadvantaged during the pandemic.

To support students in continuing their studies from home, until face-to-face teaching recommences, we will reduce College residence charges for days that College rooms are unoccupied.
