Durham University guarantees you accommodation in one of the fifteen colleges on campus. University regulations require that you contract to remain in your assigned housing for the full duration of your program.

The Colleges

The colleges share a lot of similarities, with each offering excellent facilities, lots of opportunities for personal development and a comprehensive support system. However, every college has its own distinctive character, defined by its buildings, traditions and people. Some are housed in historic buildings; others are modern. Some take pride in age-old traditions; others are more informal. Some are larger, offering a particularly diverse community. Others are smaller and everybody knows everybody! All colleges are within walking distance of lecture facilities, study facilities, bars, cafes and shops. For a full list of colleges and what's offered, please visit Durham's accommodation website.

We can never guarantee a student will get their preferred accommodation as some of the colleges are extremely popular (such as University). Our colleagues at Durham University do however try their best to accommodate any preferences listed.
