Urgent Help Needed Choosing COLLEGE???

University Navigation

    • Thread Starter

    I've just applied through UCAS, and Durham is down as one of my options however I have left the college choice as undecided for the moment as I am unsure which one to pick?

    - Closeish to the Business School
    - Fairly large college
    - Traditional architecture
    - Mainly formal

    Does anyone have any ideas to which college would suit me?

    The closest colleges to Durham Business School are Van Mildert, St Aidan's, and Trevelyan. Having stayed at Van Mildert whilst on a Summer School, I'd say it's about a five minute walk from there. Out of these St Aidan's has the largest number of students, but all three of these colleges- while lovely- have quite modern architecture, so based on your criteria I might suggest St Mary's.
    It's a little further away from the business school (perhaps a 10-15 minute uphill walk), but the architecture is stunning and it's still a lot closer than any college on the Bailey. With the exception of Castle, it's by far the most beautiful college in my humble opinion and has a great view of the Cathedral also.

    Hope this helps
