About Houghall Court Unite

Houghall Court is a student housing in Durham that offers two types of rooms. The first type, the en-suite rooms, include Classic and Premium Range 1. Each of these rooms come with a comfortable bed and a Wi-Fi-connected study area. You’ll also find a wardrobe, storage space under the bed and shelves and drawers to store your belongings. The rooms also come with private shower rooms with sinks and toilets, but you will be sharing the fitted kitchen and the living area with your flatmates.


If you prefer more privacy, studio rooms are for you. Studio rooms include Classic, Premium Range 1, and Premium Range 2; and they’re all self-contained. Meaning that in addition to everything featured in en-suite rooms, they also come with private fully fitted kitchens.


Houghall Court offers high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the campus, secure key access, maintenance support and it’s CCTV-monitored. It has on-site laundry, printing, recycling facilities and an onsite service team with 24/7 assistance.


The property offers all-inclusive rent; covering electricity, heating, internet, water and insurance. The facilities include a communal study space, a common area and an outdoor social space.


Houghall Court sits beside the River Wear, less than a mile from Durham city centre. Enrich your mind at the Oriental Museum, or free it and relax at the Botanic Garden. You won’t have to go far for a workout, because The Fitness Centre at Durham University is just around the corner. When it’s time to eat, try the Indian cuisine at Amaani at the Pumphouse, or the Thai ones at Zen.

I am currently a resident here. Really disappointed about the administration on charge. They closed the reception and missed several of my parcels. The fire alarm rings from time to time and wake us 8 on the weekends.
