 St Cuthbert's Society

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 collegiate 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 thus provide a uniquely flexible range of accommodation and catering options to our diverse and international 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 and events to enhance the academic experience.
