 Ustinov College


Welcome to Ustinov College, Durham's postgraduate college. Ustinov College offers a relaxed environment in which postgraduate students can find the support and facilities they need to concentrate on their work.

Postgraduate students of every subject and from everywhere in the world are guaranteed a warm welcome and acceptance at Ustinov. The community of 'Ustinovians' consists of 1600 postgraduate student members, senior members and staff.

We can offer accommodation to the majority of our students in their first year, and many students throughout their entire time as Durham students.

All student members are automatically members of the Graduate Common Room, the student body which organises college social events.
