Every Durham University student belongs to a college - a vibrant, supportive community full of opportunities for you to gain new experiences, develop skills to achieve more in your future life and make the most of your time at University.
Many students choose St Mary’s initially for its spacious landscaped site with a magnificent view of the Cathedral. It is also very near the main University Library and the Science Site. When they leave, what they value above all has been the opportunity to belong to a strong tradition of celebrating difference and diversity with the College community. They take away with them memories of its relaxed and friendly atmosphere that has enabled them to feel accepted and valued and ready to face the challenges of today’s world.
