University of Durham Campus

University of Durham


Durham University is a world-class university in two locations: in the city of Durham and at our Queen's Campus in Stockton. In both locations the University is engaged in:

  • high-quality teaching and learning
  • advanced research and partnership with business
  • regional and community partnerships and initiatives
  • services for conferences, events and visitor accommodation.


At Durham University, we combine excellent teaching, internationally-rated research and superb student support services to give students the very best all-round education.

The University was founded in 1832, and developed in Durham and Newcastle until 1963, when the independent University of Newcastle upon Tyne came into being. The University is collegiate and is located in the city of Durham and the nearby town of Stockton-on-Tees. The colleges are not teaching bodies, nor are they purely residential - typically they provide a centre for students' sporting, social and residential activities.

The University's Queen's Campus, Stockton opened in 1992. Over 2,000 full-time students are now studying in purpose-built accommodation 23 miles south of Durham, on the banks of the River Tees.


Colleges provide residential, social and welfare facilities for their student members, and create a sense of community for staff and students together. Its academic teaching and research programmes are delivered through departments contained within three faculties: Arts and Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences and Health.
