Welcome to St Aidan's College
St Aidan’s was designed by Sir Basil Spence, the renowned architect who was responsible for Coventry Cathedral, making us one of the most architecturally interesting Colleges. We're one of the larger colleges with approximately 1000 members, of whom about 750 are undergraduates. We pride ourselves on being friendly and unassuming, encouraging our students to develop themselves as fully as possible, as well as helping others. We are so privileged at St Aidan’s to have beautiful views over the ancient and majestic city of Durham. Situated at the top of Windmill Hill, the view of Durham Cathedral from our gardens is by far the best in the city and is a constant reminder of the history and tradition that we are part of.
