Welcome Grey Students! I’m Hannah, your JCR President. Congratulations on receiving a place at Durham, we are looking forward to welcoming you into our Grey family. My last 3 years at Grey have been nothing short of wonderful, and there are so many ways that you can get involved too, whether you’re interested in sports, the arts, or anything else. As President, it is my role to ensure that everyone feels supported, and has the opportunity to really make the most out of their experience at Grey.

Your first week in Durham – University Induction Week Events Timetable

The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.

To help you keep track of where you need to be, and what you need to do during your first busy days at university, in your College and your Department, we have created a day-by-day University Induction Planner. This should help you to plan your schedule, so you don't miss anything - from being issued with your Campus Card or meeting the staff in your Department, to trying out for a sports team or joining a student society.
