DURSA Benefits

Membership of DURSA entitles you to certain retired staff benefits.

Durham email address

To request the @durham.ac.uk email address please complete the CIS personal email address registration form. This will automatically qualify you for a Campus Card which allows access to the Library and the Visitor Attractions. 

If you require only a Campus Card you will need to complete the CIS Visitor campus card registration form.

This will need to be renewed annually by completing the Extend a Temporary IT Account online form.

Once completed please return the form(s) to the Alumni Relations Office for authorisation via email to alumni.office@durham.ac.uk or by post. Once approved the application forms will then be sent on to the CIS team for processing. The CIS team will then notify you once the application has been processed.



As a DURSA member you will automatically receive printed copies of Dunelm (our alumni magazine) and electronic versions of Dialogue (News for Durham University Staff) and Newswire (our alumni e-bulletin). We will also circulate news of the death of a former member of University staff when we are notified of these. 

If you wish to unsubscribe from these communications, please email alumni.office@durham.ac.uk.
