Ahhh, the first in a long line of what will be this question!
What many people fail to realise is that by applying to your COLLEGE you've already applied for accomodation. Other universities around now will be sending out application forms for which tower block you want to live in (
) but Durham, as you've applied to the College, doesn't need to now.
You're guaranteed a room in your college, and because all colleges are such a small site (although Hild Bede is a big site, it's nowhere near the size of a city university or even a campus university!) then you don't need to apply. For example, if you're in Trevs, all the rooms are pretty much the same, and you'll live in either A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, or J block.....D being about 10 seconds away from the dining hall and J or H being about 1min and 10 seconds away from the dining hall! It's no difference really.
Finally, you WILL be sent out a questionnaire ONCE YOUR RESULTS HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED (i.e. in August!) which will ask you some basic stuff like what time you usually go to bed/get up, what kind of music you like, if you smoke, etc etc. so that if you end up sharing a room then they can put you with someone quite similar to you
