Hi there :hello:
Thanks for coming over to :tsr2: hope you're having a great day!
Lemur14 may be able to help advise you on this as she is a current student at Durham and knows more about it than I do!

Furthermore, check out the forum for Durham University :bump:
All the best,
Cheese

All the wholly self catered colleges are in the same area so just pick the one that suits ie gowned not gowned for formals. The exceptions are Castle and Cuths which offer a self catering option near the Bailey but no guarantee if you apply to them that you wont be allocated catered accommodation instead (unless you have medical requirement).

John Snow next year will be based at the top of the hill colleges in brand new buildings along with the new South College. The walk down the hill to lectures is pleasant and leafy, with lots of students walking up and down from the other hill colleges. There are new pathways/cycle lanes being built across the road from John Snow, along the edge of the botanical gardens to ensure the higher volume of students from the two new college buildings can walk down the hill more safely. Apparently on ‘clubbing nights’, by a chapel half way down the hill, the Christian Union gives out hot chocolate to drunken students on their way home - nice!
