    Choose Derwent.

    Derwent is like that one relative you see every couple of years at family reunions. There's the unusual smell and large amounts of asbestos, but you know we're heaps more fun than anything else.
    Derwent does sound fun. But I don't think I'll be too pleased with the apparent lack of shelf space. And I'd like a college a little more quiet, but not by much.

    Don't worry, apparently it doesn't kill us unless we breathe it in. And you can't breathe it in unless it's chipped. And they're careful not to chip it.

    Or something like that.

    You can choose which college, and I'd go for James. Alcuin is rubbish for social life and has no sense of community and is farther than the rest. Vanbrugh is pretty ugly and seen as abit gay I think (artsy was the word). James is the nicest, closest to the gym, sports courts, yusu centre and has its own bar.

    HALIFAX!!!

    It's the place to be.

    LOL jk, don't know anyone who chose Halifax. We all just got stuck with it :P Wouldn't move for anything though.

    Seriously though, Halifax is great. We even have our own Costcutters.

    The walk to campus wakes you up and has you feeling all superior when you see people falling asleep in 9am lectures while you are wide awake

    Socially it's decent and we often join James for social events. Someone threw a house party and about 200 people turned up from all over the uni haha, so it doesn't have to be isolated :P

    All the accommodation is modern and the rooms are nice. Also I think it is the prettiest college; it's arranged in courts and will be great in summer because there are quad type areas with benches.

    The James buildings are rather nice. I actually like everything about it. I just wish it was closer to the main university building

    I love how enthusiastic the Halifax college students are! (Not to mention how the ensuite rooms are to die for) But the distance is slightly worrying, as well as the 51 week let for ensuite rooms
