Trevelyan College at the University of Durham

Trevelyan College at the University of Durham was founded in 1966 as a college for women, and since 1990 it has admitted members of both sexes. The college occupies a set of architecturally distinctive buildings on a five-acre site on Elvet Hill. 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.
