Durham College welcomes parents and family members!

Student success is the result of a team effort and as parents and family members you are an integral part of the team. The information on the parents & families website will help you gain an understanding of the student experience and the ways you can remain active partners in fostering your student’s success. We believe that the more informed you are about Durham College, the better equipped you will be to support your student and to celebrate his or her successes and challenges.

Dine for half price

Family members of students who are meal plan subscribers are invited to join their student at the South Village Dining Hall for a half-priced meal. Our South Village Dining Hall features an outstanding buffet with a large selection of food choices to meet the dining needs of all our guests.
