The Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC) is a leading international
centre for research into the origin and evolution of the Universe at Durham University .
We address some of the most fundamental questions in science:
What were the first objects in the Universe? How do galaxies form?
What is the nature of the dark matter and dark energy? Where does the
large-scale structure of the universe come from? What is the fate of

In November 2016, the ICC moved into the brand new Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics building, designed by the world renowned Studio Daniel Libeskind. The new building now houses all three astronomy groups in the Department of Physics, including the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation and the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy, as well as the Institute for Computational Cosmology.
