We are thrilled that you will be part of our community over the next three years and look forward to having you shape and sustain it with fellow students and our staff. Whether you’ve had lots of time to prepare for your arrival at Durham or if things have been more rushed, once you are here we look forward to helping you settle in. Information and orientation activities during induction week and meetings early in the term with your academic advisors are all designed to ensure your time at Durham starts out on a path to a successful educational experience.

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.
