South College is Durham's Newest College

Welcome to South College, a friendly, diverse and ambitious community of undergraduate and postgraduate students. As Durham's seventeenth College, South is fortunate to have inherited the best of Durham's collegiate traditions and to have the opportunity to create new traditions of its own.

A stunning example of purpose-built modern architecture, South is located on a beautiful, parkland site alongside Durham's existing Hill Colleges. It is just a short walk from many of our academic departments, the University library and the new Learning and Teaching Centre.

South has a complete set of social, sporting and cultural facilities and tremendous student accommodation. Our student rooms come in two types: en-suite bedrooms in cluster flats, each with its own kitchen/dining room, and large Town House rooms with shared bathrooms and kitchen/dining rooms.

South College offers a fantastic opportunity to students who would like to share in the adventure of creating and shaping the College's identity. This will be based on the ideals expressed in our College motto: 'Libertas, Aequalitas, Civitas Totius mundi', in English, 'Freedom, Equality and Global Citizenship'.

As a student in South College, you will be at the heart of Durham University. As a member of our College community, you will have the chance to make friends for life. You will also have support and encouragement to develop self-awareness, leadership and problem-solving skills through participation in societies, teams and student representative groups such as the South College JCR.

South College offers students a unique opportunity to write a new chapter in Durham University's proud history.
