If you are thinking about applying to Durham University, a great way to explore the wealth of opportunities on offer and get a greater insight into Grey is to come and visit us.

Pre Application Open Days

These are the very best way to discover all you need to know about Durham University and Grey College before you apply.

These events will provide an opportunity for those interested in applying to Durham University to get a feel for Durham and gain an insight into the Durham student experience. Departments, colleges and other student support services and facilities will be available for talks, tours and demonstrations.

On these days there will be an opportunity to meet Grey staff and students, and to view our facilities.

Post Application Open Days

Post-application open days offer an interactive study and social experience and provide an opportunity to experience first-hand what life as a Durham University Student is about.

Applicants who have got an offer from the University and Grey, will be invited to attend a post-application open day, which take place towards the end of March. Letters of invitation will be sent out and they will include a link to the on-line open day guide and booking instructions.

At these events you have the opportunity to stay over and spend a night at Grey. The Open Day Helper Team organise a wide selection of events based in both college and in Durham over the two days to keep you occupied. Tours of both Grey and Durham will be on offer during the afternoon in which you arrive. After this you will have the chance to experience dinner in college before going to Grey bar and then having the option of staying in for events in the JCR or going out and getting a taste of our favourite clubs and bars. The following morning we will wake you up for college breakfast before making sure you make it to your departmental open days on time!


If you are unable to attend an open day, we would love to see you at another point in the year and we can organise tours of Grey with a current student so that you still get a good look around and feel for the college. College tours are available on weekdays by appointment only.
