Stephenson College

Our students say...

“Stevo has given me the opportunity to get involved in things like I never have before. I've been able to take part in new sports (like Lacrosse) and societies (like the All Male Voice Choir) without feeling intimidated by large groups. I got to know everybody's face so quickly and when you're in a friendly atmosphere it's so much easier to try new things out that you maybe wouldn't have considered before.”

Ricky Lee BA Primary Education

“You will have the best time of your life at Stevo! The college is one big community which hosts wonderful experiences you will never forget. The best bit about Stevo is... the relaxed atmosphere of the College but still keeping the traditions of Durham University. I have made friends for life here and cannot wait to come back as an Alumni of Stephenson College.”

Virginia Glithero, BSc Psychology (Applied)

“The relaxed, less traditional atmosphere of Stephenson really appealed to me... There's so much opportunity to get involved in different activities; an invaluable experience that not many other universities offer. I've captained the College rugby team, been part of the ski/snowboard committee and held leadership positions, all of which really have given me important transferable skills which I would have otherwise not gained.”

Will Kruis, BA Accounting & Finance

“You just have to experience ‘Stevo’ for yourself – my experiences so far have been the best time of my life! ”

Azeem Akhtar, BSc Human Science

“As an international student at ‘Stevo’, you will never feel alone or isolated. The amount of support from the Principal, the Vice-Principal, college staff and the JCR is enormous. It is like joining a big family, meeting friends from different countries and learning of other cultures. ”

King Lin, BA Business Finance
