John Snow College is a college of the University of Durham in England, and one of two located at Queen's Campus in Stockton-on-Tees, 37 km (23 miles) south of the city of Durham itself. It is named after John Snow, the 19th century physician.


History

In 1992 the Joint University College on Teesside of the Universities of Durham and Teesside (JUCOT) was established on the site as a joint venture between the University of Durham and the University of Teesside. This was initially intended to grant joint degrees validated by both institutions (BAs and BScs). However, Teesside, which had only become a university in 1992, had difficulties in taking on its responsibilities for the college and Durham took full control in 1994.


A programme of integration with Durham began, leading to the college becoming University College, Stockton (UCS) in 1996 — a college of the University of Durham and the only college with teaching responsibilities. Further integration lead to the campus being renamed the University of Durham, Stockton Campus (UDSC) in 1998, and the removal of its teaching responsibilities. In 2001 UDSC was split into two colleges: one was John Snow College, and the other was George Stephenson College.
