Van Mildert College, Durham University, Mill Hill Lane, Durham. DH1 3LH

Sic vos non vobis

(Not for yourselves)

The College is named after William Van Mildert (1765-1836), the last Prince Bishop of Durham. An Englishman of Dutch descent, he was instrumental in the founding of Durham University in 1832 and his castle is the present University College. His portrait hangs in Van Mildert College's Ann Dobson Hall.

The College Motto is his too – sic vos non vobis.
