Welcome & Induction Events

Your first week in Durham

International student activities begin first from Wednesday 25 September. After this, activities for both Home and international students take place from Sunday 29 September to Friday 4 October, with teaching commencing on Monday 7 October.

Verification of Identity

On Freshers Monday, once your identity has been verified and provided you have completed your Student Registration and uploaded your photogaph, you will be able to your collect your Campus Card.

We accept the following photographic identification as proof of identity: current passport, current driving licence or current European identity card. If you are a UK student and you do not have either of these forms of identification, you may supply your original Birth Certificate. When you complete your online enrolment please ensure that your name in DUO is an exact match to your proof of identity.

To help you keep track of where you need to be, and what you need to do during your first busy days at university, we have created a day-by-day Personal Induction Planner. The timetable has been designed so College events don't clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow freshers, find your way around and settle into life here at Castle.
