Visit St Mary's
Pre-application Open Days
You can get a taste of what Durham University and St Mary's College has to offer by attending one of our pre-application open days. The University will be offering the following pre-application open days in Durham City 2019:
- Monday, 1 July 2019
- Saturday, 6 July 2019
- Friday, 20 September 2019
- Saturday, 21 September 2019
These events will provide an opportunity for those interested in Durham University to gain a real insight into the Durham student experience. Departments, colleges and other support services and facilities will be available for talks, tours and demonstrations. There will be an opportunity to meet our College staff and view our facilities. There is also likely to be a limited amount of University managed accommodation available.
Places will be limited and therefore pre-booking will be required to attend a pre-application open day. The booking system will open approximately six weeks in advance of the open days. We do expect our open days to be very busy; you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
Post- Offer Visit Days
If you are offered a place at Durham University and have been allocated a place at St Mary's College, we encourage you to come and visit us on one of the University's Post Offer Visit days The University will be offering Post Offer Visit Days in Durham City:

Individual College Tour
Visiting the College is best done on a Pre-Application Open Day or Post Offer Visit Day. However, if this is not convenient it may be possible to visit St Mary's College at other times during the undergraduate term. A tour of the College does need to be pre-booked using the form below to make your request. If we can meet your requested date and time we will confirm this with you.
Alternatively, if you are unable to come to College for an individual tour, our virtual tour is a great way to see what St Mary’s College has to offer. You can view some of our facilities here in order to get a feel for the College and its surroundings.
