Freshers

Welcome to Durham University

Congratulations on securing your place here at Durham!

This section of the site is intended to give you an idea of what student life is all about in Durham and we've included lots of useful information for you. Do get in touch with us if there are any questions you can't find the answer to.

To find out what we have planned for your first week at Uni check out "Freshers' Week" and for info on living in Durham City and Queen's Campus, click on "Introduction to Durham". If you want to know more about the college that you are going to, check out the Colleges section of this website, where you'll find links to all Durham and Queen's colleges and most JCRs.

Make sure you pick up your copy of the Durham Student Handbook in October. The handbook has all the phone numbers, tips, info and advice that you could possibly need! Don't worry, you don't need to read it cover to cover, but stick it on your shelf so you can refer to it over the coming year.

Start chatting to Durham students and other Freshers in our forum - just click below and follow the instructions.
