Durham University

Colleges & wider student experience

Welcome and Induction 2019

Congratulations on securing a place at Durham University!

We are delighted to welcome you as you start your life as a Durham student.

This will be a busy time for you, and both your College and Academic Department have planned induction activities and events to help you settle in and find your way around.

We encourage you to take the opportunity to meet staff and familiarise yourself with your department, by attending introduction sessions before your course begins.

These webpages will be continuously added to and updated as further information becomes available.

Personal Induction Planner

To help you keep track of where you need to be, and what you need to do during your first busy days at university, whether within your College or Department, we have created a day-by-day University Induction Planner. This should help you to plan your schedule, so you don't miss anything from being issued with your Campus Card or meeting the staff in your department, to trying out for a sports team or joining a student society.

Induction Week Checklist

There will be so much going on when you first arrive at Durham, we've compiled an Induction Week Checklist of things you need to do - make sure you've got them all ticked off your list by the end of Induction Week!


Calling all Bloggers, Vloggers and Photographers!

Check out the Student Blogs to find out more about the range of activities and events you can get involved in when you arrive at Durham University. Who better to tell you about student life than our students?

We're always looking for Blogs and Vlogs, so if you've got a student story to share we'd love to hear from you. See your Blog/Vlog published and promoted through the University social media channels.

Plus, be credited as one of our Bloggers - It looks great on a CV!
