Durham University



When you join us, you will be living in the historic City of Durham. Here you will enjoy a fantastic student lifestyle, in beautiful surroundings and with an excellent choice of events and entertainment.

Students studying at the Durham University International Study Centre will be based at Queen's Campus, Stockton. Durham City and Queen's Campus, Stockton offer different environments, each distinctive and outstanding in their own way.

In this section of the website, you can find out more about student life across both of our locations.

If you feel like exploring further afield, you will find plenty to do in and around Durham City and the wider North East Region.

"Durham City is such a lovely place to live, small but busy enough, and bursting with history and beauty." 

Henna Bains, MMath Student

What's On? 

The University is a hub of events and activities for students, staff and the wider local community. Our online 'What's On' Guide provides a great way to organise your social diary as well as helping you get involved in free or subsidised activities. It's a great way to try something different and meet new friends!
