Durham SU exists for a purpose: we’re the champion of every Durham student. We’re interested in the things that matter to you. We stand up for your rights. We bring you together. We celebrate your success

We give Durham students a voice, support over 250 student groups, hold countless events, run two bars and cafés, and offer an impartial Advice Service. Every Durham student is automatically a member of Durham SU, and we want to make sure every student has the power and opportunity to transform their time at Durham.


We champion students.

As a students’ rights organisation, our collectivism makes us stronger.

We trust students to make the best decisions about things that affect them.

We’re proud of Durham.

We always recognise success, while we strive to be better.
