There's a lot to learn about college and Durham in general but don't fear, if its important its on this page, handily organised into categories. Any current student can add to or update this information so that everyone can benefit from each others' experiences.
You should have received a ‘Room Allocation Form’ with the first wave of info sent to you by college – this is possibly the most important form in the pack. It is the information that you put on this form that determines where and with whom you will live for the next year. It should go without saying that the more truthful you are, the more likely that you will be in a place that suits you best. It is the SRC President, Sarah, who reads these forms, not a member of College Staff. She will treat whatever you write with the strictest of confidence; no one else will see them and they will be destroyed in a year’s time.
