    Anyone else having trouble when inputting their UCAS ID and PIN into the booking open day page? It keeps saying my details are incorrect Emailed admissions but not knowing my potential college is killing me :bawling:

    This happened to another applicant I talked to - she waited a day or two, and then it worked. Also, if nothing shows up in the accommodation section when you log in and attempt to book, try it on another device - my PC browser didn't work, but on my phone it worked fine.

    Thank you very much! I'll have to be a bit more patient hehe 😂 Are you planning on going to one of the residentials too?

    Aww no I'm planning on going to the 20th/21st one (long story 😂) and it looks like I've been allocated to St Hild and St Bede which is pretty much on the other side of the uni to Butler! Hope everything goes well, really excited to finally visit Durham though

    Damn, sorry you didn't get St John's! I think Hild Bede is the one everyone takes the p*ss out of because it's so far away from everything, haha. I hope you like Durham as much as I did regardless of the reallocation, the facilities are superb, fingers crossed Hild Bede is alright too

    I have an offer for the PHD Law at Durham.

    Trying to find a college to apply for that fits this;
    a. Near the School of Law
    b. Self catered and ensuite.
    c. Has a vibrant postgraduate community. I would care less for undergrads honestly.
    d. Do not care much for whether it is traditional or modern.

    Any suggestions?

    There’s only 3 self catered + ensuite colleges at Durham, which are Josephine Butler and Stephenson and John Snow.

    All other colleges are catered, and don’t have very many en suite rooms.

    I’ve only visited Josephine Butler out of these 3, and can say that it is the furthest away from the main campus areas. Have a look on a map where the other two are and some of the online photos/videos to help you get an idea of what is best for you

    Chances are wherever you applied initially had too many Music candidates, so they reallocated you to maintain a rough balance in all the colleges. It's not done by distance to department.

    I've been allocated St Hild and Bede for Economics. A little worried as I wanted to be allocated Collingwood (I've heard this is the college with the best nights out/parties). Not that it's the be all and end all by any means but I was wondering if anyone's been allocated it/can assure me it's still fun and full of normal people?
    Thanks
