As a member of Cuth's, you will meet a very wide range of students, studying all the subjects on offer at Durham; students across all years, staff and senior members of the college; indeed, many former Cuth's students stay connected with their college 'family' for the rest of their lives, and are keen to help current students. The JCR (the student community) offers an ever-growing range of activities, sports and societies, with many opportunities for creativity, teamwork, democratic governance and leadership.
We want all our students to flourish during their time here, in their academic studies and their personal development. Support is available in the college, from college staff and from the student welfare team. A wide range of lectures and debates is organised each year by student societies and by college staff, offering insights into academic research, contemporary social issues, charitable activities and career opportunities. You can play sport to win the Colleges league, or just for enjoyment. You can put on a play in the dining hall, or in the University's dedicated theatre. You can perform at an Open Mic night, or at a formal concert in Durham Cathedral. You can hear inspiring speakers at college Formals (dinners), or volunteer to inspire disadvantaged children in the wider Durham community.
As one of the oldest and friendliest student communities in Durham St Cuthbert's Society has a lot to offer potential students; and you, too, will make friends for life.
