St. John's College




St. John’s College is ideally situated, very close to the cathedral and within a few minutes walk of the centre of Durham.  The college buildings were originally 18th C town houses. There are terrace gardens leading down to riverside walks, sitting rooms, a TV lounge, a pool table and a bar (18+).  The library will be available for study at all times, although books may not be taken out.

There are single and twin-bedded rooms, all with fitted hand-basins. A hospitality tray with tea and coffee is provided in every room.  Bath, shower and toilet facilities are within easy reach of every room. There are also a limited number of single rooms with en suite facilities in a new building. These will cost £70 extra and early application is recommended to secure one, although priority will be given to those with specific needs. St. John’s will provide towels, soap and bed linen. A coin-operated washing machine and drying room will be available. The college is extremely well maintained and offers a comfortable and convenient environment for work and relaxation. The dining room has recently been extended and refurbished.


If participants want to come prior to the start of the course or leave at a later date, it is possible to book Bed and Breakfast accommodation in advance at £27.00 per night for any extra nights before or after the course, in a single standard guest room. The rate for extra nights in the en-suite rooms will be £37.00 per night. The same facilities can be available for parents/relatives delivering or collecting students.  Further details are available on the St John’s website
