Mount Oswald Residences - EH Smith

Mount Oswald Residences

University of Durham

The Mount Oswald site includes a new home for John Snow College and the brand-new South College. Together, the two colleges offer purpose-built, self-catering accommodation for 1,000 students.

Each college has a unique look and feel with its own common room, support offices and café bar. The Mount Oswald site also has a Hub with a large events hall with capacity to seat 300 people, gym, music practice rooms, a launderette, faith/quiet room, yoga/dance studio, performance practice space and a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA).

EH Smith worked closely with Interserve and Techrete to select and supply facing bricks to the scheme, the majority of which were pre-cast into panels which were then assembled on-site.
