Trevelyan College

 Trevelyan College

Welcome to Trevelyan College!

Our College, affectionately known as 'Trevs', is the third smallest in Durham. We have around just over 650 undergraduate and 145 postgraduate students, and roughly 40% of those students live in College. Our small size is part of what makes us widely renowned as one of the 'friendliest colleges in Durham' - a reputation that we are proud of. Our infectious College spirit comes from the strong sense of community in Trevs which is forged, in part, by our unique 'under one roof' architecture. You will immediately feel at home at Trevs and will make friendships that will last a lifetime.

Why come  to Trevs?

  • Small and friendly: We are one of the smallest colleges and most of our facilities and accommodation are housed under one roof. This gives Trev's a real homely, community feel; we are known for being particularly friendly and relaxed.
  • Renowned for our strong arts and music scene: We are well-known for our superb music groups, our performing arts societies and our fine arts. We have orchestras, choirs and bands of all genres as well as the Hill College Theatre Company and our annual art competition.
  • Fantastic range of opportunities: Despite being small, we have an exceptionally wide variety of clubs, societies and sports teams that you can join, whether you're a beginner or an enthusiast.
