Welcome to St. John’s Common Room

St. John’s College was established in 1909 and is one of the two independent colleges of Durham University. We are the second smallest college of Durham, giving the student community a strong college family feeling. We are best known to other colleges for our fantastic cellar bar, characteristic winding corridors, and having the best catering in Durham. Centrally located, nowhere remotely interesting is outside of walking distance from the college grounds.
