I think a lot of Psychology's stuff is on the upper science site which is really good news as thats even closer to Collingwood than the main science site, you can leave at 9 for a 9am lecture and still only miss the 1st slide!
Collingwoods 1st year accommodation is good, I think its all been renovated fairly recently, you'll either be on a floor of 10 rooms with 2 loos and 2 showers or in a 2 person sharing room with an ensuite. Meals are ...... average, there is 3 options most days for lunch and dinner with 1 being vegetarian, breakfast has the option of cereals, toast or cooked breakfast.
Durham nightlife is small if your used to the big city but not too bad, ive never felt the need to go to newcastle in 2 years and it isnt that common to do so. Theres normally 4 clubs open on any given night and will cater for most mainstream tastes, the nightlife has been covered loads on this sub forum just have a scroll through the pages/do a search. College bars are dirt cheap, its amazing!
