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 join the LUG  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 currently do not have regular face-to-face meetings. Any future meetings will be communicated on the mailing list.
