    Basically my priorities in life are food... But yeah, I think that the formal dinners should be fun, if they live up to the hype. The only problem with Grey, really, is that they seem to suggest that some people have to share their room for a term



    Heyy, I'll try and update on here if I remember, feel free to message me though!
    Thanks! :-D

    I don't think I'd mind sharing that much! If paired well it really gives you a good friend!

    Same thing here, I'm still waiting to hear from Warwick and Edinburgh but I'm pretty sure to firm Durham.
    I just hope everything's gonna be fine with the entry requirements 🍀
    I'm still waiting for Edinburgh too, and Glasgow in my case...
    I'm praying for the necessary results in the maturitá... What school do you go to? :-)

    Does anyone know what happens when you arrive at Greys? I'm aiming to get there at around 5ish so would I have to just stay in my room for the whole evening?

    I dunno if you already got the itinery (its on the fb page, just fyi) but at 6pm there's dinner and then after that they seem to have arranged some activities and stuff. So no, you really wouldnt have to

    Well half are Sunderland supporters and the other half Newcastle so there's sort of a feud between them. Darby days are good fun though

    I've got an offer to study law at grey and I was just wondering what the purpose of the master of the college is and what Grey's master is like?

    I've stayed at Grey and Van Mildert, the rooms at Grey (in my opinion) were dirty and dull. The college itself was also very dull and lacked any form of vibrancy - Van Mildert was pretty much the same.
    I didn't apply to Durham so I'm not salty or anything I didn't get an offer, but why are the requirements so high when other Uni's are just as good if not better? I feel as though they give high offers based entirely upon the prestige rather than the actual student satisfaction or course content

    Visited on Thursday, had a 1 on 1 with a prof, toured Grey and had a meeting with the international office overall I'm really impressed with the support structures the college system and the law school itself! I've firmed Durham and insured Edinburgh! See you all in October!

    I was at Grey over Easter for a short residential. The dining hall and food was nice, the JCR was comfortable and had an enormous TV, and though my room looked a little dull and hotel like, it was spacious enough, clean and comfortable. The showers and toilets were shared on a corridor. There were six or seven enormous showers and about the same amount of toilets for each gender between my corridor of eight or nine and the next corridor over. I stayed in the Oswald block.
