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.
If you need to bring a car to Durham, you must have obtained a University permit before you arrive in order to park your car. Parking spaces in college are limited and are allocated by the Principal, so please contact him if you intend to bring a car to Hild Bede. Priority is given to students with special need of a car. Cars are not a necessity, Durham is an extremely small city, and you are restricted in where you can park if you are a student. If you do not get permission from the University, you must not bring your car to Durham, as you will be charged a hefty fine if you park in someone else’s space.
