South College

About Us

South College is the 17th College of Durham University.


South College is located next to the new John Snow College buildings which will also open to students in 2020. Our wonderful location between Mill Hill Lane and South Road, is close to Durham Business School and the many departments located on the Mounjoy site. South College is only a short walk from the Bill Bryson Library, the Teaching and Learning Centre.

South College will have a mixed community of undergraduates and postgraduates. As well as welcoming new students, we also have Pioneer Scholars who are moving over from other colleges to join us. We're looking for students who want to help lead the development of student common rooms, to help set up new societies and establish new college traditions.

The Hub

South College shares a Hub building with our closest neighbours John Snow College. The Hub includes a 300 seat multi-use dining area where college formals, events and activities will take place.

The Hub has an excellent range of brand new facilities over two floors including:

  • Gym
  • Music Practice Rooms
  • Dance and Yoga Studio
  • Drama Studio
  • Faith and Quiet Room
  • Laundry
