Durham has a great deal to offer postgraduates and I hope you'll find your time here richly rewarding – not just academically (though I'm here to support you with that!), but also with the opportunities available through the Students' Union and other student groups which help develop your interests beyond your studies.

Postgraduates often have different requirements when it comes to housing, so we have put together this postgraduate housing guide to help you find your new home.

Relocating your family can be daunting, but Ustinov College – Durham’s only dedicated postgraduate college – has put together this guide to help those with families settle into Durham.

Pop along to Dunelm House on Saturday 28 September to a laid-back event for postgraduates and mature students. Meet people from other colleges and have a good chat before Freshers’ Week fully begins. More details to follow.

Durham SU provides a platform for postgraduates to collaborate and help tackle issues that specifically impact the postgraduate experience. We’ll let you know when we’re gathering, so you can come along and share your thoughts.

Durham can be a bit of a bubble. When you need an escape, there are plenty of stunning places to visit in the surrounding area. Here are a few of our favourites.
