The core 30 weeks provides a weekly catering charge of £83. There are 21 meals per week provided which equates to just over £3.95 per meal.

Other University Accommodation

Recognised (independent) Colleges

The two recognised Colleges, St Chad's College and St John's College, operate their accommodation independently of the University. Residence charges, periods of occupancy and catering may slightly differ from those published above. You should check directly with these Colleges for the most up to date information on their accommodation options.

Purpose Built Partner Accommodation

The University sometimes leases high quality accommodation in purpose built blocks in Durham City. This can be due to high student demand or when planned refurbishment programmes mean some of our College accommodation is unavailable for part or all of the academic year. The price of this accommodation can vary slightly, but the University will ensure that the charge for this accommodation will not exceed that of a similar facility and standard offered in College accommodation.
