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.

With a few exceptions, high quality teaching on all programmes will be wholly online for the entirety of Term 2 (Monday 11 January - 19 March 2021).

The university 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, the University will reduce College residence charges for days that College rooms are unoccupied.

Visit durham.ac.uk/coronavirus/campusmanagement for more information on Term 2.
