St. Mary’s College at the University of Durham

St. Mary’s College at the University of Durham was formally constituted as a college for women students in 1920. It succeeded an earlier women students' hostel established in 1899. St. Mary's is the only remaining single-sex college at Durham, and it is scheduled to admit members of both sexes beginning in 2005. 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.
