Project TitleMount Oswald
SectorStudent Accommodation
No of Pods843
Practical Completion2019


Mount Oswald was identified as a potential site for new collegiate student residential accommodation in the University’s Estate Masterplan. The site is close to Durham University Business School and academic departments on the University’s Lower Mountjoy site, as well as a number of the University’s Colleges off South Road. Work is due to begin around March 2018 and to be completed around September 2019. As part of the Durham University Strategy, colleges will be relocated from Queen’s Campus in Stockton to Durham City, student numbers will grow to a maximum of 21,500 by 2027 and 50% of students will live in collegiate accommodation. Walker Modular will provide Bathroom Pods for this development in the journey of meeting these objectives. The development makes space for John Snow College and a new 17th at Mount Oswald, totalling 1,000 student bed space, to be ready for 2019/20. The development benefits from good transport links to Durham and beyond and the facilities will be self-catering, with a mix of en-suite rooms, shared bathrooms, cluster flats and townhouses.
