 Ustinov College

Welcome to Ustinov College website

Ustinov College is Durham University's only exclusively-postgraduate college. Ustinov offers a relaxed environment in which postgraduate students can find the support and facilities they need to concentrate on their work.

Postgraduate students of every subject and from everywhere in the world receive a warm welcome at Ustinov. The community of 'Ustinovians' consists of 1600 postgraduate student members, senior members and staff.

We can offer single accommodation to the majority of our students in their first year, and many students throughout their entire time as Durham students. We also offer some couples and family accommodation. All student members are automatically members of the Graduate Common Room, the student body which organises college social events. You can also read our College Brochure and College Life Guide.

Why choose Ustinov?

  • An international community: with students from across 100 different nations creating a diverse environment
  • A more mature community: offering a dedicated postgraduate-only environment with facilities specifically for postgraduates, accommodation available throughout the whole year (Oct to Sept) and accommodation for families and couples
  • A supportive community: providing pastoral support specifically for the needs of postgraduates, both financial and personal in a friendly & informal atmosphere
