Life in Durham
Wider Student Experience
At Durham, academic success is only half the story. Our transformative wider student experience will also help you develop as a person.
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.

Accommodation and catering costs
Accommodation costs are based on whether your allocated college is catered or self-catered, and then by the room type the college offers.
When you come to Durham, you are entering a community, not just embarking on a course of study and like all communities we create, perform, play and support, as well as working.
