I've been offered somewhere which is fully catered, but I really want to be self catered. Is there any option for me to self-cater whilst staying in a fully catered college?

Hi. Unless you have been allocated Cuth's then the short answer is no.

Some colleges may let you live out but it is generally strongly discouraged.

Received a conditional offer (AAA) for Politics today! I'm so excited!

I'm hoping to firm Durham but I'll only be making the final decision once I've received a college allocation. I applied to Van Mildert college.
I applied to Butler which I really wanted but have been allocated Van Mildert, don't really know what it's like but wondering if you could give me some idea?

There is likely to be a kitchen in your halls but you'd be paying for catered so the time spent using it would be relatively low.

I also think it's stupid how there isn't more colleges with the option of self-catering.

I know people could argue why apply to Durham? But I did apply to Butler and I can't base my uni decision on being catered or self-catered.

It's only for year one. But I agree there should be more self catering options available from the start

I applied to Butler as well. I think the fact that I didn't get a self-catered college will probably push me towards a different uni - I really don't want fully catered accommodation. I know it sounds bizarre but oh well

I am not sure you appreciate how important communal college life is at Durham and communal dining is generally seen to be at the backbone of this.

I would recommend you go to the residential Open Day but obviously Durham doesn't suit everyone!
