    Hi! Just got allocated here and thought I'd make a thread. I've got an offer for Ancient, Medieval and Modern History.

    Is anyone going to the open days?

    Congrats to everyone!

    Awesome, congrats! I'm going up for the Tuesday/Wednesday one because there's no way I'd be able to get there in time for the 10am start

    I applied and got allocated to Chad's! I didn't expect to be allocated to Chad's considering the size of the college but I'm so happy

    Hey, I got an offer from Chad's a few weeks back, if I'm honest I didn't do all that much research into the collages but chose Chad's because the small community vibe appealed to me I should be going on the Tuesday/Wednesday visit!
    I'm studying Music so it would be neat if anyone can chip in about the music life/course in Chad's and Durham in general

    Hello! I have been allocated to St. Chad's. I was wondering, do you live within the college? Or in the city? Was confused when I saw it had 10 residencies. Thanks!

    You live in the college for your first year, second years tend to live in flats with friends and third year is either in college or in a flat.

    I think Chad's has multiple buildings down the Bailey so you could be placed in any of those for your first year but then there is the main building as well which also has shared rooms. That's what I gathered from the open day at least!

    But these are buildings in Durham, not within the college walls? If that makes sense hahaha

    Yes the buildings are not in the main college but they are all on the same street and within about 500m from each other maximum. You don't have far to walk

    Okay this may be a strange question, but do you like studying in Durham? Can you please elaborate on what makes it great/not so great? I am really in between choices (and countries), and I would really appreciate your honest opinions!

    I would also like to hear what you think about St.Chad's! Are you glad you were allocated there? What makes it great/not so great? etc. Thanks in advance for your help! Xx

    I received an offer from St Chads last week - I really hadn't expected to get my first choice of college as it's so small! My offer is for Archaeology and Ancient Civilisations
