Durham University

Colleges & wider student experience

Postgraduate residence charges

Durham University is a collegiate university and there are currently 17 colleges in total. All colleges accept postgraduate students and all students are required to be a member of a college.

Whilst every college has accommodation available, because of our varied and historic estate there may be different types of accommodation available and limited availablity depending on the college you are allocated. For example, a college may offer entirely en-suite, self-catered accommodation and therefore you cannot have any type of catered let in this college. As an alternative example, another college may offer standard, catered lets and therefore limited en-suite facilities.

*Please note: occupancy periods and accommodation charges may vary at the two recognised colleges. These are St Chad's College and St John's College.

All family accommodation and some couples accommodation is based at Dryburn Court, part of Ustinov College. Further couples accommodation is based at the Sheraton Park site.

**A student who requires an en-suite room as a result of a disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010 and that this requirement for en-suite is supported by appropriate medical or diagnostic evidence, will not be charged the supplements for these facilities where both standard and en-suite facilities exist in their allocated College.
