Congratulations and Welcome from the Master

Congratulations on getting a place at Durham and Grey College!

Grey is a wonderful place. Our students come from all over the world and from all walks of life, and we aim to make every one of you feel at home in the College from the day that you arrive.

We have excellent facilities, in a beautiful location close to the main University campus. Our staff are dedicated and professional, and they are ready to support you in your studies and personal development throughout your time at Durham. The College also hosts a public lecture series and a variety of cultural events that all students are welcome to attend.

Of course, your experience at university is not just about your studies. At Grey, it is also about the people you meet and the things you do outside the classroom. Our student organisations – the Junior and Middle Common Rooms – are outstanding. They run a huge range of activities and events, and Sports and Soceities for you to get involved with.

I hope that you enjoy life in Grey. A university education should offer much more than a degree, and at Grey we make sure that this is the case.

Prof. Tom Allen
