At Durham University, you not only choose a programme of study, you also choose a college, which every student belongs to. A college is a vibrant, supportive community that provides opportunities for you to gain new experiences and develop skills to achieve more in your future life. Each college has its own distinctive character defined by its buildings, traditions and people and each offers a range of facilities for study, sports, socialising and relaxing.
St Cuthbert's Society is one of the oldest and friendliest student communities in Durham. Cuth's has a lot to offer potential students, from academic and personal development to a whole host of clubs and socieities, many of which are unique to the college. With two residential sites, one on the Bailey, the historic heart of Durham, and a more modern residence ten minutes away, we're the only Durham college able to offer catered and self-catered (with the option of doing both) to students.
