New College Durham

Established: 1977
Type: Education
Location: Framwellgate Moor, Durham, England

New College Durham is a college of further and higher education and Sixth Form College in County Durham, England . It was founded in 1977 as a result of a merger between Neville's Cross College of Education and Durham Technical College. The college operated on two main sites near the city of Durham: Neville's Cross and Framwellgate Moor. The site at Framwellgate Moor opened in 1957 and was extended in 1970, the site houses the bulk of the college's further education (FE) provision, whilst the Neville's Cross site, an ex-college of education site built in the 1920s, houses most of the higher education (HE) provision.

In the academic year 1999-2000, the college enrolled 8,270 FE students, of whom 1,877 were full-time, and 1,934 HE students, of whom 675 were full-time. Business and management was offered on the Neville's Cross Campus until 2004.

In 2002, the college was given planning permission to build a new £37 million campus at Framwellgate Moor. This meaning the HE campus at Neville's Cross will close then be moved to Framwellgate Moor. Construction work began in 2003 with the new buildings being constructed around the old buildings, when the new buildings were completed then work began to demolish the old buildings. The first phase was opened and completed in September 2004 with the second phase opened in September 2005 whilst the final landscaping was finally completed in October.
