The Union was founded to stimulate debate on pertinent issues, but today the Union takes on a much bigger role in Durham life.

We host a diverse range of events in our very own chamber and bar: from free Members’ socials, and headline balls, to debates and addresses from high-profile speakers, to training for our world-class competitive debating squad.
