Viaduct Court, Durham

Development Overview

Viaduct Court, formerly Durham’s county hospital is to be converted into a state of the art new student accommodation scheme. The former Victorian property will be renovated and two new blocks of residences will be built to create a 363 bedroom scheme comprising a mixture of studio rooms and 4 to 5 bedroom clusters for the city’s students.

Preparatory work to develop the site is expected to start in August 2016 and the first students will be able to enjoy the accommodation from September 2018.


The site is perfectly located for study, nightlife, recreation and the outdoors and is situated a ten minute walk away from the University campus and minutes from the city’s bus and train stations and many bars and restaurants.
