The University of Durham, established early in the nineteenth century, is the third great collegiate university in Britain. Durham now has fifteen residential colleges: thirteen in Durham city and two on the University’s Queen’s Campus in Stockton-on-Tees. A sixteenth Durham city college is now under construction. These informal photos of several of the Durham colleges were taken by Robert J. O’Hara during a speaking visit to Durham. For more information about the Durham colleges pay a visit to the University of Durham website. For more information about residential colleges in general please visit the main Collegiate Way page.
