College life

Every Durham University student belongs to a college - a community that seeks to be vibrant, supportive and full of opportunities for you to gain new experiences, develop skills to achieve more in your future life and most importantly, have fun while you're at it!

  • Junior Common Room

    Every student and college staff member may belong to a group called a 'common room'. Undergraduates belong to the Junior Common Room (JCR). As well as creating a community of members, each group has its own social space.
