College move to Durham City

'Committed to maintaining and enhancing the quality of our student experience.'

Durham University Strategy 2017-2027

The University Strategy is to be world-leading in all of education, the wider student experience, and research and engagement.

Following a detailed review it was decided in 2016 to relocate academic and college-based activities from Queen’s Campus to Durham City with a view to improving the student experience, addressing imbalances between the two campuses and facilitating improved research and performance.

The relocation of academic programmes to Durham City enables the establishment of an International Study Centre at Queen’s Campus, thereby delivering a strategic priority to grow international student numbers and continuing our commitment to the Campus and the Tees Valley.

In a separate decision by University Council, also in 2016, it was agreed to transfer the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health to the Faculty of Medical Sciences in Newcastle University.

Since those decisions were undertaken planning has begun for the relocation to start in September 2017 and complete within two years.

These pages are intended to give you further up to date information of what is happening, when and how.
