The campus is quite spread out but as it is a small city it is all relatively easy to get to. The facilities are excellent, such as the state-of-the-art library and the science site. However as a language student I do not get to enjoy these facilities as much as others and believe that more could be done in Durham to improve the facilities of the various art degrees available. The student union is a strong point, it is in a picturesque location that overlooks the river and they host various events.


Great facilities and pastoral care, the students create a wonderful environment to learn in and the general atmosphere is great. Wonderful location too!
