·        All undergraduate international students are guaranteed accommodation in university managed properties in their first year.

·        Every Durham University student belongs to a college, whether living in accommodation there or elsewhere; colleges provide an environment to encourage and support student's studies and personal development. Colleges are not teaching bodies, all teaching is delivered through the various academic departments.

·        Each college has its own distinctive character, ranging from historic to modern, some with age-old traditions, while others are more informal. As well as accommodation, colleges offer a high level of support to students, along with student-led events including balls, concerts and productions.

·        A variety of study bedrooms are available; and many colleges are fully-catered although some offer self-catering. All bedrooms have Internet access.

·        The university tries to ensure that international students are spread between the different colleges. Students remaining on campus at Christmas move into one college for the holidays; at other times of year, students can usually extend their stay for an additional fee.

·        There is no guarantee that accommodation will be available but in previous years the university has been able to offer a limited number of single rooms to postgraduate students.
