College Life

Ustinov College is a place for postgraduates to call home, whether you live in College or private accommodation.

Sheraton Park and Dryburn Court are our two College sites, open and manned 24/7, offering a safe, welcoming space for students from all over the world. There are many different opportunities to get involved in College life: through the Graduate Common Room and a host of clubs and societies; through the student-led Global Citizenship Programme which organises both academic and social events; or just through spending time socialising with felllow Ustinovians. We also have a café and bar in Sheraton House which is open to everyone*. Whether you are interested in sports, music, art or academic discussions, there is always something of interest going on!

*Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, Ustinov Café is currently closed. As social restrictions are subject to change, please contact our Reception via ustinov.reception@durham.ac.uk to check if the Bar is operating at the point you wish to visit, and if so, how you can book a table.

Living in Ustinov College is great, because you don’t need to go far to work with your research and have fun.
