Trevelyan College


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 most importantly, have fun while you're at it!

Trevelyan students are known for their ability to achieve a balance of academic work and social life. Explore our web-pages here to find out about our great facilities; opportunities to participate in sport, music, art and other activities in College; and the support network in place for all our students.

A safe place to live, work and study

Durham University has been named the third safest university in England and Wales by The Complete University Guide 2015.

Meet Claire...

"Being at Trevs is a great way to meet people from different walks of life, and because the college is relatively small, you get to know people really well. Living in college I truly feel that I've experienced the friendliness Trevs is famous for - living under one roof creates a really strong sense of community."
