Short-term accommodation in the heart of Durham

(27 April 2018)

St John's College is situated in the historic heart of Durham City, within a World Heritage site. Only a stone's throw away from Durham Cathedral, the College boasts a series of interconnected Georgian houses, as well as secluded gardens and lawns stretching down to the River Wear, where you can enjoy leisurely walks, or respite for reflection and reading. Most academic departments and lecture halls are within a 15-minute walk. Short-term lets are now available to postgraduate students, University staff and Visiting Fellows at competitive rates, subject to availability. For further information or to make a booking, please contact
