i'm applying to durham for eng lit and was wondering which college you chose (if you gave a preference) and what ur experience of their college system was? if u dont mind idk

I chose St John’s!

i’d highly recommend the colleges located in the centre of town - John’s, Chad’s, Hatfield, University College, etc. it makes getting to places SO much easier. they’re all very close to the Student Union, the high street (lots of shops, restaurants, and most importantly, Tesco Express), several lecture halls and subject departments, and only a 10-15 minute walk from the library and the science site.

colleges essentially operate as both a hall of residence and as a community. it’s a bit like a Hogwarts house. colleges hold their own events, formal dinners, meetings, societies, clubs, etc, all of which are exclusive to members of that college.
