College locations

No matter which college you choose, you're never too far from lecture venues, study facilities, your college, cafes and shops.

At both Queen's Campus and in Durham City all colleges are in walking distance of all these essentials. If your course is based in Durham, you will be a member of a Durham-based college. If your course is based at Queen's Campus, you will be a member of a Queen's-based college. 

Durham City

Because the city of Durham is so compact, all our Durham-based colleges are reasonably close both to the bustling city centre and the University's 'Science Site' where the main library is based.

Some colleges are based on 'the Hill' in spacious grounds, near the Botanic Garden with stunning views over the city. These are known as the Hill colleges.

Others are based on (or near) a the Bailey, a historic, cobbled street running down into the City; close to Durham Cathedral and the river. These are known as the Bailey colleges.

One of our colleges is based in spacious grounds overlooking the river, backing onto woodland, a short stroll from the centre of Durham.

But no matter which college you choose, you're only ever a stroll away from anywhere you need to be!

Queen's Campus

Queen's Campus, Stockton

And at Queen's Campus, that's even more true. Based around a vibrant, close-knit campus, both our Queen's-based colleges are no more than a few minutes walk away from the centre of the campus and a stone's throw from the river.

See our Durham City map or Queen's Campus map for further details.

Travelling between campuses is simple

A free inter-campus bus runs every half hour (Mon - Sat) between Durham City and Queen's Campus and is available for all students and staff. An hourly service is available on Sundays.
