DURSA - Durham University Retired Staff Association
DURSA is open to all members of staff who have retired from Durham University. The primary aim of DURSA is to keep retired staff engaged with the University and its intellectual and social networks. DURSA is led by a committee, currently chaired by Dr Keith Orford, former Dean (Faculty of Science) who founded the association.

One of the greatest challenges for DURSA is contacting former members of staff who may have retired some years ago. When you meet former colleagues, please check if they have heard of DURSA, urge them to join and provide them with the link to this page.
As DURSA grows and develops, we plan to broaden the activities of the association to reflect the interests of our members. Retired staff benefits include campus cards, library access and a University email address to be made available to those interested, as well as University alumni mailings with news and updates from across the University community.
DURSA membership is administered by the University’s Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) and registration is via the link below.
If you are Durham alumni:
You may have already registered for Dunelm (if you have an ‘...@dunelm.org.uk’ email forwarding account, you have registered). However, you will still need to register for DURSA membership and subsequently select your membership benefits and mailing preferences. To do this, log in using your existing username (user ID) and password.
If you are emeritus staff or already have a ‘…@durham.ac.uk’ email address:
Your CIS account (Computing and Information Services, formerly Information Technology Service) is administered separately and you will be required to register separately for DURSA and select a username (user ID) and password.
For any queries, please contact Tim Guinan in DARO by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
