Durham University

Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad


Living in one of Durham's 17 colleges is more than just living in University housing. College life is a big part of what makes Durham so different to almost anywhere else. Many of our students say that the college system is one of the best aspects of university life. Ask Durham students about living and studying in Durham and they're sure to mention their college, even years after they've left!

Study Abroad students coming to Durham for the full academic year are eligible for college accommodation and accommodation fees are payable on top of the tuition fees.

If you would like to be considered for a place in one of our colleges, please indicate on your application form. Information on the College costs can be found here
