Durham LUG

About Durham LUG

We are a community of Linux users in Durham and the North East area.

Durham LUG exists to promote Linux and other open source software, to provide education and technical support for LUG members, and to provide an opportunity to socialise with other people who share these interests.

The group has an informal membership structure. Anyone is welcome to attend LUG meetings and to participate online. There are no membership requirements or fees.

The group was originally founded as the North East Linux User Group (NELUG) in 1999. In 2008 the group was renamed to be the Durham Linux User Group as the Tyneside LUG had also been set up in North East England.


We have face-to-face meetings on the third Tuesday of every month (see our calendar for dates). These are held in the bar of the Durham rowing club. The meetings are mainly social in nature, with discussions of Linux, free and open source software, and anything else that people are interested in.
