    I just visited the open day yesterday and was blown away by Durham. I would just like to know if I was fortunate enough to be accepted, I would like a bit of atmosphere to my room. Can you do anything like rearrange furniture, add furniture, paint walls, drill holes for pictures etc? May sound stupid but I would be living away from home and would like it to be nice. Thanks!

    I am sure you can rearrange furniture, add furniture. I doubt you can drill holes or paint though. You can stick posters up though. I am not sure if it is the same in every college, but In Trevelyan you switch rooms each term. This is to give students the opportunity to increase their social circles and mix with a wider range of your peers.

    I was also at the open day, pretty sure the girl at Trevelyan said that they rearranged the beds when she was sharing a room. And I can't imagine that you're not allowed to put anything on the walls (use white tack).
