Durham is proudly a collegiate University. As a Durham student, you become a member of a college, somewhere that is so much more than just the place where you will live. In each of our colleges, you will find a sense of community that is distinctive to Durham. For more information our our colleges, please click here.

All University accommodation is based in one of our colleges and every Durham University student belongs to a college, whether you live in college or elsewhere. Our colleges offer a vibrant, supportive community full of opportunities for you to gain new experiences, develop skills to achieve more in your future life and most importantly, have fun while you're at it!

Our 16 colleges offer excellent fully-catered, part-catered and self-catering options. As well as accommodation and food (in the catered colleges), the cost of college accommodation covers utilities (including a cleaning service) and a very wide range of facilities. Find out more here.
