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.

Cuth's Carol Service

Cuth's Carol Service took place on Sunday 9th December at St. Margaret's Church, which took the traditional form of Nine Lessons and Carols. Cuth's Choir prepared a feast of music from Tallis to Lauridsen via Rachmaninov, Poulenc and others, and gave an exceptional performance, and members of the Cuth's JCR, SCR and staff did the readings. In true Christmas fashion, the service was followed by mulled wine and (thanks to SCR member Gillian Banks) homemade mince pies. Many thanks as well to Rev. Barney Huish, Rector of St. Margaret's, SCR member, and former Chaplain of Cuth's for leading the service.
