If you arrive from 5.30pm onwards you will need to ring the outside doorbell located to the right hand side of the foyer. This will page our duty porter, who will then let you into the building and check you into your room accordingly.

If you are arriving by car there is free car parking, however this is used by Staff and other guests of the school - so is subject to availability. Alternatively there is a park and ride car park located approximately 10 minutes walk from the college.

The business school is a 5 minute taxi ride (about £3) from Durham Station (which is on the east coast main line). All the taxi drivers know the Business School, so you won't need to give them directions.

Alternatively, if you're carrying light luggage, the walk from the Station through town is picturesque and will take about 30 minutes. There is a tourist map on the platform.
