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.
It has been a great year for Cuth's, with our sports and societies growing in size and stature, and this year the JCR introduced a number of new awards, alongside the traditional colours and half colours, for outstanding efforts and contributions to sports, societies, and the JCR as a whole. The awards include Student of the Year, Unsung Hero, and Most Improved Sport or Society, and were given out an the annual Sports & Societies Formal, with over 100 colours and half colours handed out after dinner in the bar.
