Durham University is unique. We are the third oldest university in England and one of the world's leading centres of scholarship and learning. We seek to achieve the highest distinction in research and teaching and are committed to excellence in all aspects of education and transmission of knowledge.
Many of our buildings are modern and designed for accessibility but a small number of the colleges and department in Durham City are in very old, listed buildings where getting around isn't always straightforward. Also, due to the ancient medieval layout of the City, certain limitations can be encountered. However, we do our best to make reasonable adjustments where possible and advise on accessibility of buildings as necessary.
