Gorgeous house, modern and warm. Students cribs always answer our queries quickly and have been really helpful. They send out surveys regularly to ensure student voices are heard. Best agency I’ve had in my 4 years at uni.

Durham, home to the University of Durham, is an unsuspectingly quaint, northern British city, with university buildings and Durham student houses dotted among the city’s rambling cobbled streets. Delicious bakeries and petite cafes are as common as vibrant bars, while afternoons are frequently spent unwinding on Palace Green’s croquet lawn in-front of the one-thousand-year-old cathedral that you might recognise from the Harry Potter films. It’s small size makes Durham feel familiar, while still offering students a vast array of options for entertainment and student accommodation. Durham is a great city to study in, and an even better city to live in! When you aren’t busy relaxing in your Durham student house, the city is sure to delight.

Best Things For Students to Do In Durham

Durham may be small in size, but this university town has a lot going on to keep you entertained. When you want to stretch your legs and spend time outside of your Durham student house, the 1000 year-old Cathedral in the centre of Durham is great to explore, with this UNESCO World Heritage Site making for some great snaps and an escape from campus. For an outdoors escape, stroll along the River Wear, giving you stunning views of the highlights of the city including the Cathedral and the Castle. If you get the urge to be on the water rather than by it, you can also book aa boar party for a night out with a difference. The Durham Botanical Gardens, with 10 hectares of exotic flowers and plants offers further respite for university stress, and is a great place to fight off the hangover after dancing into the early hours in Klute which is proudly branded as the worst nightclub in Europe.
