Postgraduate

College costs

Durham University is a collegiate university and there are currently 16 colleges in total. All colleges accept postgraduate students and all students are required to be a member of a college.

College membership and accommodation for postgraduates is coordinated through the Colleges and Student Experience Office. Once you have accepted your offer from your academic department, the Colleges and Student Experience Office will contact you with further information about College membership and accommodation options. You will then have the opportunity to state two College preferences. Please note, if you do not complete the College Application you will be automatically allocated membership only of a College.

Durham University offers an Accommodation Guarantee scheme for full time postgraduate applicants who meet certain criteria. Whilst every College has accommodation, because of our varied and historic estate, there may be different types and limited availability depending on 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.
