We are a collegiate university and all students are a member of a college. There are seventeen colleges in Durham City. College membership and accommodation for postgraduates is coordinated through the Accommodation Allocations Office (AAO). Once you have accepted your offer, the AAO will contact you with further information about college membership and accommodation options.

You will have the opportunity to express two college preferences. If you wish to be considered for college accommodation you can also express facilities preferences for catering and room type. Each college is different, so it would be good to visit individual colleges pages before you send us your preferences.
