Welcome to St Cuthbert's Society

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the ongoing, rapidly changing situation regarding the COVID-19 virus please see the University's designated page for current information:

St Cuthbert’s Society is one of the largest and oldest student communities at Durham. Founded in 1888 as an alternative to college living, it still retains that independence of spirit, but now offers its students all the advantages of being a college of Durham University. Cuth’s occupies two sites, with rooms on the historic Bailey and self-catered, modern flats across the river at Parson’s Field. We provide a uniquely flexible range of accommodation and catering options to our diverse student body. Cuth’s offers outstanding opportunities for student participation in sport, the arts and volunteering, which are supported by its exceptionally energetic Junior Common Room, as well as a lively programme of interdisciplinary lectures, careers evenings and events to enhance the academic experience.

Post Offer Visit Days 2020

Congratulations to all Durham University Offer Holders who have been allocated to St Cuthbert’s Society!

We were looking forward to welcoming you to our Post-offer Visit Days later this month, so we regret that the University has had to take the difficult decision to cancel these events due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This is to safeguard the health, safety, and wellbeing of you, your guests and our University community. We will refund Residential or Evening Meal bookings automatically, but please be aware this may take some time due to the volume of refunds we'll be issuing.

We know this is an important stage in making decisions about the right University for you. We want to do all we can to help inform those decisions. We are therefore developing an online Post-offer Visit Day, which will be available in early April. We will be in touch with you by the end of March with further details about this. We're very sorry to have to cancel this important event and for any inconvenience this has caused, but hopefully we will see you online soon.
