    Hi,

    I will start studying Economics at York in September and I'm wondering which college should I choose.
    I thought of choosing the new Constantine College as the rooms are brand new and modern.
    However the economics department is next to Alcuin College so the college is at a convenient location.

    How far is Constantine College from the economics department?
    Which college of the two should I choose?

    Regards,

    It'd be about a 20 minute walk from Constantine to your department, or like a 5 minute bike ride. There's a free bus that runs also.

    So! Accommodation applications opened to unconditional students today!

    In Constantine, Cat (Chair) and I (Vice-Chair for Community) got a little bit eager to see how applications were coming along..

    and we filmed our visit to the office!

    Be prepared to laugh at us, because this OSCAR performance has just wiped out any street cred we had ^_^

    Hi everyone, ive got an unconditional offer for law for this september. Currently deciding what college to apply for. I'm thinking vanbrugh, premium ensuite, but they are only 36 week lets which could be a pain in the backside come easter. Since i'm studying law (law schools on hes east) the site recommends i choose a college from hes east, however i've heard they're a little dead compared to the others, and thats not what i want! is it really a massive pain to make the 5(?) minute journey to the law school for classes and then go back to vanbrugh or alcuin to live?

    Not too much of a problem; I did it for CompSci in first year. The buses are fairly regular, anyway, and if you get a bike it's no problem at all.

    It is nice to fall out of bed into lectures though...
