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.


Here’s what our students say:

St Chad’s feels like home to me. As an international student it really acts as a home as well as I don’t have anywhere else in the UK. I feel connected to the community and I feel as though I have a purpose at Chad’s which makes me feel respected and valued as well.
I love the sense of community and friendly atmosphere here. There are so many opportunities to get involved whether that be sports, societies, events running and leadership.
The buildings are gorgeous, the gardens are glorious, and they made university feel that much more special. I love the sense of community and friendly atmosphere. There are so many opportunities to get involved whether that be sports, societies, events running and leadership.
I like the sense of community, how I can turn anywhere and always have an intellectual conversation with someone. The rapport between staff and students is also always very fun and jovial.
I really appreciate the College’s efforts with first generation students and exploring how we can start discussions surrounding social mobility.
You’re challenged to be your best self and support is always there if you need it.
I’ve had an amazing first year here and a big part of that is because of Chad’s!
