Every Durham University postgraduate student is a member of a college - a supportive, diverse community of students and staff from across the University.
Whether you live in college, or 'out' in town or in your own home, whether you are studying full-time, part-time or at a distance, you still benefit from the services and opportunities on offer in your college.
Each college has its own distinctive character defined by its buildings, traditions and people and each offers an excellent range of facilities for study, sports, socialising and relaxing. As well as the practical facilities colleges provide, they offer excellent personal support and a secure environment which complements the academic provision of your department.
At Van Mildert you can expect a friendly welcome to a diverse community of students, tutors and staff; a vibrant social scene; successful sports teams; and lots of opportunities for student participation, particularly in our range of outreach projects.
