    I was impatient so I went on the events registration booking and when I went on 'select visit type' it had my accommodation down as St Hild and St Bede, but I haven't received a confirmation email. What does this mean?

    I'm in the same situation, I checked the registration booking and have St Hild and St Bede, but no confirmation email, guessing this means we've been allocated to this college, was it your preference?

    What's with everyone getting upset about Hild and Bede? I'd have been pretty happy to have been put there!

    I anyone going to the Post-offer day on 22nd march (with 21st march accommodation). I've booked on alone and feeling nervous
    I'm going to this one too (at Trevs!). I haven't actually visited but I've heard lots of good things about the college- if you look on YouTube for Trevelyan college freshers 2016 there is a girl who blogged her freshers week and it looked really good! It's quite a musical college :-)

    I visited it on the open day last summer. It's got nice facilities, there's a shop, pool tables, etc. It's quite a sporty college, but our tour guide reassured us that there's no expectation for you to get involved, although it is encouraged. He also joked that they have sports teams for all levels - he did football and was in the K team (11th one down) haha.

    I got an offer form Hatfield! Is it bad? Its looks depressing from the Youtube Video on Hatfield. At least on the video, it seemed like those guy were trying very hard to show how fun the college is!

    I personally love it. I think the hate is half banter and half jealously.

    From what I've heard and saw on the open day last year it's really communal and somewhat traditional in places ( which I like ).

    I know their JCR website has loads of good information on it, but either way I'm sure at the end of the day when you're with new friends and settling in you'll love it there!

    What subject have you applied for?

    I'm regrettably not going to accept my Durham offer but I got reallocated to Hild and Bede and I have no idea why people dislike it so much. The distance is only far relative to other colleges but compared to other unis and their accommodation, it's barely a stroll away from everywhere you want to be. It also looks beautiful. If I were going to Durham, I would be perfectly happy to go to Hild and Bede.

    I got mine through email, but you can check where you've got if you go to this link: https://www.dur.ac.uk/postofferinvite/
    on there you should be able to sign in and once you get to the 'type of visit' page it should tell you your college
    hey just wondering how you found what your college would be i couldnt find it on the website?
