    I did a summer school at Durham, I'm a swimmer so it was a question which I asked. The university does not have any pools, however the town does have a pool and the University have secured lane times throughout the week. Hope this has been helpful.
    Thank you so much, that was very helpful indeed ^^.
    So how long does it take me to get there? Is it close to uni? & how much do you pay per month?

    Loads of queries on this thread about which colleges receive the most applications! I looked it up for my own interest in the official Durham Uni admissions stats, and thought I'd summarise a few figures below for anyone else who might be interested.

    The figures are for the 2013/14 admissions cycle (ie for entry in 2014/15, including deferred entry applications). The FIRST figure is the number of applicants who put that college down as their preference when they applied, the SECOND is the number that actually ended up in that college.


    College of St Hild & St Bede: 838 / 315
    Collingwood College: 1,760 / 405
    George Stephenson College: 961 / 436
    Grey College: 829 / 300
    Hatfield College: 1,242 / 290
    John Snow College: 863 / 355
    Josephine Butler College: 2,000 / 259
    St Aidan's College: 336 / 262
    St Chad's College: 1,212 / 122
    St Cuthbert's Society: 1,012 / 334
    St John's College: 593 / 147
    St Mary's College: 1,503 / 228
    Trevelyan College: 470 / 207
    University College: 3,638 / 212
    Van Mildert College: 617 / 347

    Remember the figures are just a very rough guide to the relative popularity of each college, NOT an indication of what percentage of applicants overall get an offer from Durham, so don't be disheartened! That figure for 2013/14 was 26,030 applications and 16,702 offers made.

    And as others have said, don't forget you're actually applying to the university rather than the college per se - so if you put down Castle (University College) as your preference and the university wants you, but they don't have room for you in Castle, you'll still get an offer from another college. In other words there's no harm in putting down the college preference you'd like most!

    Got my confirmation email finally! I applied on the 6th...

    It says:
    "The admissions selectors will consider all applications as quickly as possible but in the interests of fairness, many decisions will need to wait until we have received all applications which were submitted by the UCAS deadline of 15 January. We do aim to make all decisions on on-time applications by the end of March."

    Gonna be a long wait

    I wish there was a clearer breakdown of applications and acceptances for Durham. Cambridge and Oxford have much clearer application statistics pages. I can't work out how many people applied for Politics at Hatfield and got allocated to that college.
