New Business School - Waterside

Brown office building

Durham University Business School

From September 2024 you will be taught from our brand new Business School building, Waterside. This additional building will complement our current Mill Hill Lane site and both sites will deliver a world-class business teaching and learning experience.

Waterside is nestled in the heart of Durham City Centre just a few minutes walk from the railway station, along the scenic banks of the River Wear. The new Business School will become the central hub for all your DBA activity, including lectures, seminars, and student support, and will provide an exceptional learning environment for you to progress on your doctoral journey.

You will have access to high-quality spacious study areas for your individual study and group work activities, providing you with the perfect environment to focus on your research or network with your cohort. Waterside represents more than just a new building; it signifies a significant enhancement of our facilities and will enable us to facilitate even more cutting-edge business research.
