New Durham college

December 16, 2005

Durham University is to open its first new college in the city for more than 30 years. The 16th of Durham's colleges will be named after Josephine Butler, the Northumberland-born writer and social reformer who pioneered women's education. The first students will be admitted to the 400-room college, off South Road in the city, in 2006.

Adrian Simpson, a senior lecturer at Warwick University, has been appointed principal of the college and will take up his post in January.
