    The college says it expects all freshers to live in, and I'll have to write a letter explaining why I don't want to. To be honest, I don't mind living out or at the college as long as I am not surrounded by immature idiots.

    I did. Are you living out or at the college? I applied for Mezzino. It seems a better deal for the same price.

    I've applied to live out.

    I visited last year and saw the accommodation which was nice. However, at 35 years old, I have concerns about being placed to live with party animals (and those days are long gone). I much prefer a good cup of tea and (if I can afford it as a student) a nice meal out!

    Mezzino is the furthest from the uni and people who live there say they don't feel like they belong to their college. And seeing as Durham forgets about Queen's,it's nice to have that extra support.

    Stephenson has a mature flat in Bellamy Block on the second floor. It's where I currently live. In my half of the flat,there are 7 rooms. In the other half,there are 3 large rooms, one for the president, one for the treasurer and one for visiting academics. It's been very quiet and I recommend it.

    This year however, I've bought a house on a newbuild estate in Stockton. Which is only 20 minutes walk to uni. For people who want to live out, many get places in Trinity Mews. It's actually even closer than Snow and £400ish per month for a 1 bed.

    UKCAT seems absurd at first and you question if its fair. I did a Pearson course and paid for some extra online questions that matched the actual test. Which helped me a lot. The biggest tip I would say is don't do the full mock tests until you are ready to do it like the actual test. Don't waste them.

    Yes off to Durham starting October can't wait.
