Some people ranked their college depending on how close it is to their subject department. I had different criteria in mind. I ranked my college depending on number of en-suites, self catering and gowned formals. My department is 20 minute walk from my college but I’ve gotten so used to it now it feels like nothing

Hiya

When choosing colleges, as has been mentioned, your course can play a part as you may want a college closer to your department. But generally, no college is meant only for a particular course. When allocating colleges, each college has a certain number of spaces for each course- this is to ensure that there is a good mix of students from all subjects. So if those spaces are already filled in your first choice, then you may be allocated to your next preference.
