Durham college ranking

I have an offer for law but I am unsure how to rank my colleges. I want a catered gowned college preferably.
For now I am thinking:
1.Chads
2.Castle
3.Mary‘s (I don’t think they have shared rooms tho)
4.Cuths
5.Hatfield (I like it a lot but I fear of it being too snobby¿)
6.Trevs
7.Aidans
8.Johns
9.Grey
10.Van Mildert
11.Collingwood
12.John Snow
13.Stevo
14.Hild Bebe
15.South
16.JoBo
I am an international student so I am unable to attend the offer day. Would be happy to hear your opinions/recommendations.

Good ranking but I would suggest this ranking

1.Mary‘s
2.Castle (very oversubscribed)
3.Chads
4.Cuths
5.Hatfield (not very snobby)
6.Trevs
7.Aidans
8.Johns
9.Grey
10.Van Mildert
11.Collingwood
12.John Snow
13.Stevo
14.Hild Bebe
15.South
16.JoBo

This is from what I have heard but I don't have firsthand knowledge.

Hiya,

Rankings are completely subjective and dependent on your preferences, so if you feel confident with your ranking then that's great! 🙂 Chads and Marys are both really great colleges, just keep in mind Castle is the most popular college and becomes overly subscribed quite quickly but your rankings look great and I hope it goes well!

Goodluck!

Why isn't St Hild and St Bede more popular? Is it the location, away from all the other colleges (but on a main road coming in to the city)? Is it because, despite being a Victorian building, it's only been a college of the university since the 1970s?

Hiya,

St Hilde and St Bede is a great college and highly underrated to be honest, the general consensus is that the location being far is what makes it slightly unpopular. But they will be moving to a new site in 2024 close to the city centre! 🙂
