Welcome to St Cuthbert's Society
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.

Albert Hodgson (1952-1956) gave a reading on behalf of the alumni at a rain-drenched Remembrance Service in the gardens of 12 South Bailey, along with our two Military Scholars, Stephanie Atkinson and Matt Abbott, and representatives of the SCR and JCR. The Principal was also invited to give the address at the Hatfield Remembrance Service later the same evening, which you can read here.
