Same! Having to go to Central London and then make a move from there. Hopefully it won’t be too expensive, either way, induction week starts on 26th September so I’ll have plenty of time to prepare.

looking at the pricing literally hurts !!
i’m definitely driving up with all my things for induction week but after it’s just trains :/

Can you still see your ranked colleges or have you got an assigned college on there? I can’t log in

Surely must mean something is happening
It means you can’t change your college preference anymore because the allocation process has started
I didn’t rank them and when I tried to change it on my portal there was nothing on there. Is it too late? Should I still apply? I am overwhelmed. I don’t like shared bathroom but other than that it’s ok if I get catered or self catered. I prefer en-suite

Ahh, you won't be able to change your colleges now, maybe you could email them?

Do you think I will get the worst accommodation from them?

No, it's not like accomodation like other unis and there isn't 'bad' or 'good' - every college is really nice but some are catered, some uncatered, some ensuite, some shared rooms, etc.

What will happen is they'll randomly allocate you a top 16 with your initial choice on UCAS as your first preference. If you can't get put into that college then you'll be allocated your second/third/fourth/etc. until they find one you can be allocated. These will just be random as you did not put in a preference list.
If you are an open applicant on UCAS then you will be allocated last, but if not you'll be in the first groups of allocations.

There is a secondary (final) allocation in August so if you can't go to your college for any reason (eg accessibility) you will be able to contact Durham to change.
