The College of St. Hild and St. Bede at Durham

The College of St. Hild and St. Bede was formally constituted as a college of the University of Durham in 1979, although it traces its origin to two independent teacher-training colleges established in the nineteenth century: the College of the Venerable Bede (for men) and St. Hild’s College (for women). These informal photos of the Durham residential colleges were taken by Robert J. O’Hara during a speaking visit to Durham. For more information about the residential colleges please visit the main Collegiate Way page.
