    I liked Hatfield the most (and also heard there were lots of snobs://) but I have no idea which college is close to the biology department.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Probably Grey is closest, but you really really don't need to worry about this.

    1) Nothing in Durham is very far from anything else. The nearest college is likely < 5 minutes away, but the furthest is no more than 15-20 minutes, and that's Hild Bede. Hatfield is somewhere in the middle.
    2) You'll almost certainly have lectures etc. in many different departments (the lecture rooms are spread between them).
    3) You'll not be in college throughout your time at Durham anyway, plus there are other places you'll likely visit like the town centre (close to Hatfield).

    There will be people doing all subjects in all colleges, and it works fine for all of them. This is a nice situation, unlike other unis where different accommodation blocks might be far further away from each other.
