Teikyo University of Japan in Durham (帝京大学ダラム大学?) is an overseas campus of Teikyo University located on the campus of Durham University in the Lafcadio Hearn Culture Centre. The campus was established in 1990 and operates as a language and cultural exchange facility for students of Teikyo's School of Liberal Arts.[1]

The university runs four English language exchange programs ranging from one year to four months. Students live in either one of two Japanese Halls of Residence or in accommodation at St Mary's College - a college of Durham University.

The university hosts various outreach activities such as an annual 'Japanese Festival', a schools liaison program and its Japanese library is open to Durham University staff and students along with members of the local community on a part-time basis.
