    Hiya,

    The History department is based in Vanbrugh College but this doesn't mean that all of your teaching will take place there. Taking into account sizes of lectures, seminar groups etc your teaching will be spread across Campus West so you might not neccessarily want to live near the department. Campus East is a few minutes away on the free bus/25 minutes walking and Halifax College has a shuttle bus or is is a 10 minute walk away.

    The most convenient will be James, Vanbrugh and Derwent Colleges as they are situated both near your department/teaching rooms and it's a 5-10 minute walk anywhere on Campus West.

    Definitely have a think about what accommodation the colleges have, as it is varied. A good place to start is thinking about whether you want an ensuite or shared bathroom and whether you want to be catered or self-catered. Check out our Rooms and prices page to see what the different types are and where. We also have individual College pages where you can see more pictures and info.

    Hopefully some of our students will let you know which they think the most sociable college is, but for now this might help with your choices.

    Annie
