Brief: Deliver a new home for the Ustinov College community of postgraduate students
Project sponsor: Owen Adams
Operational lead: Nick Benbow
As part of the Durham University Strategy, 2017-2027, academic programmes and colleges are being relocated from Queen’s Campus in Stockton to Durham City, student numbers are growing to a maximum of 21,500 by 2027 and 50% of students will live in collegiate accommodation.
To help meet these objectives, the University will establish four to six new colleges, and the Ustinov College community of postgraduate students is relocating from Howlands to the purpose-built Sheraton Park development.
Sheraton Park provides over 400 high-quality self-catered bedrooms and benefits from the full college experience, including dedicated pastoral support, scholarly and research activities and access to social and sporting facilities, in a supportive and motivating environment.
Ustinov College occupied Sheraton Park from September 2017 and will operate solely* from Sheraton Park from 2018/19.
*The College will continue to have couples and family accommodation at Keenan House.
