    Cuth's: Has a large bit (Parson's field) that is not on the bailey but rather near HMP Durham. If you fancy cooking your own food, you can get self catered or part catered. Traditionally had a "bohemian" reputation

    John's: Really nice rooms in historic houses on the Bailey. Home to the theological school (Cranmer Hall). Has a reputation for being quiet,, and some say Christian although other than the theology students this has no basis in the truth.

    Chad's: Small, really nice accommodation on the bailey itself. Good community.

    Hatfield: Large. Rooms are pick of the draw, A and B stairs and the newly renovated rooms are absolutely brilliant, while others are not so nice and some (palmers garth) are simply disgusting. Has a reputation for sports (especially rugby), public school educated students (There are more public school educated students here than state comprehensive). Strong alumni network

    Castle: Has rooms in the Castle and outside the castle as well which are decent. Strong alumni network. Has basically the reputation of Hatfield, except not hated. Strong alumni network.
