    I don't expect Durham to be incredible in terms of night life or even social life, but is it as boring as people say it is?
    The average response to 'I'm going to Durham' is something along the lines of: 'You're going to be bored...' or 'It's dead'.
    I mean, it can't be that bad can it, does the overall quality of education there make up for its lack of quality on the social-front?
    Are there any existing students that have any comments about it?
    (I have received accommodation in Queen's Campus FYI)

    Thanks for any help

    Queens campus is on the Stockton site. Not at Durham itself. You need to ask students there. It's quite a long bus ride between Durham and Queens campus. You probably won't be travelling between the two that often.
