    I am an international student who accepted an offer to Durham University Business School. I want to live in a standard room that is both Fully Catered & Self Catered, and it has to be open over christmas vacation. Also, college should appeal for postgraduate students.

    Suggestions, please!!

    Hi,

    I'm a little confused by your question - by the terminology from the website, "fully catered" and "self-catered" are different things, and you can't get both at once.

    Do you mean that you'd like to be fully catered during termtime, but have proper cooking facilities when food cannot be served?


    Your other condition, that the college must be open over Christmas vacation, is rather more difficult, as the website doesn't provide any information over this. The only ones I'm sure remain open are University (Castle) and St Aidan's colleges (or possibly Hatfield instead of University). However, whichever college you stay at, there is the option to book temporary accommodation is one of those that remains open, so you can stay in Durham during this period.

    If it's important that you be able to stay in your own room, I recommend getting in contact with admissions to ask about this.
