One of the smaller and more attractive colleges, Duval provides secure gated grounds and offers rooms within floors of up to eight people. With the comfort of having five dinners per week served in our dining hall, together with the flexibility of a modern communal kitchen for other times, you get the best of both worlds at Duval.
We offer a fun and vibrant environment and promote a healthy balance between academic excellence and social and sporting opportunities. You’ll be encouraged to find your own way of participating and contributing to college life from the very many events including professional development sessions provided by our Senior Common Room, inter-college sport competitions and themed pub nights and other social events organised by our Junior Common Room.
As our motto ‘while we live, let us live’ suggests, Duvalians like to ‘have a go’ at everything. The Duval Kayaking Club epitomises this by combining sport, socialising, team bonding, leadership opportunities and fundraising activities, and culminates in the challenging 111km Hawkesbury Canoe Classic paddle at the end of each year. Whether members choose to paddle or crew, it’s about fun, teamwork, achievement and charity.
