Accommodation & Estates Developments


Durham University Strategy, 2017-2027 sets out ambitious goals to deliver world-class research, education and wider student experience. To deliver the Strategy, the University needs a world-class estate – and major investments are planned, in new departmental space, teaching space, residential accommodation and student facilities, and in improving the condition of the existing estate.

Key goals

The goals of the Accommodation and Estates Strategy are to:

  • Deliver an academic estate that will allow the University to deliver world-class education, research and student experience;
  • Ensure the long-term availability of suitable residential accommodation;
  • Ensure the continuing renewal and maintenance of our estate;
  • Improve the environmental sustainability and ease of travel around our estate and city locations.
