Accommodation and Visiting
Durham University is based in two fantastic locations in the North East; Durham City and Queen's Campus in Stockton. Durham City is a beautiful and traditional city, where the famous Castle and Cathedral - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - dominate the skyline, and Queen's Campus is a modern purpose-built site situated in a striking waterfront setting.
Durham University is a collegiate university which means we are made up of a number of college communities - 15 undergraduate colleges in total and most first year students choose to live in colleges. Students are allocated to a college located in the campus where their course is based.
The best way to get a feel for what it is like to study at Durham University and see first hand what our colleges offer is to come to visit us at an Open Day.
The University is planning to repurpose Queen's Campus, in part as an International Study Centre. This will mean academic programmes and colleges relocating to Durham City and the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health transferring to Newcastle University. To find out more, please click here.
