Our Locations

Durham Business School building

We are currently located on Mill Hill Lane, Durham, DH1 3LB, a short walk from Stockton Road and other University facilities. 

The School’s historic home at Mill Hill Lane, DH1 3LB, originally opened in 1965.

Waterside building

From September 2024, we will be opening our second location, Waterside, Durham, DH1 1SL, in the heart of Durham City Centre, in the new, innovation district on the banks of the River Wear

Teaching will continue across campus just as it does now, and staff, students and visitors will have access to both locations. 

Our Department of Management and Marketing will be relocated to Waterside, ready for the start of the 2024-25 academic year. 

Our Departments of Accounting, Economics and Finance will remain at Mill Hill Lane until further notice.
