Durham University

Notice about the Covid-19 infection
  • Covid-19


Durham University remains open and we are responding to and planning for the Covid-19 pandemic and the months ahead with the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, students and local community as our priority.

We hope to welcome students back to Durham in September and we are planning for this. We are also working hard to ensure that we have high-quality online education offers ready for some or all of the 2020-21 academic year, should further or continued government restrictions necessitate this.

We have faced lots of new challenges in recent weeks, and there will be more to come, but colleagues across the University continue to work tremendously hard to support ongoing University operations and also the local, national and international response to Covid-19.

The impacts of Covid-19 are far-reaching and varied but we are confident we can remain strong as a University if we face them together as a community.
