Welcome to St Chad’s

St Chad’s is one of the oldest colleges in Durham, situated in one of the city’s most stunning locations. Established in 1904 as an Anglican foundation, and aiming to live out its Christian ethos with integrity and imagination in the 21st century, Chad’s today welcomes students of all faiths and beliefs to study for the whole range of Durham University degrees.  With over 450 undergraduate and around 150 postgraduate students, we are a hospitable, human-sized community with an excellent reputation as a college where students will be both challenged and supported.
