Durham Student is the ultimate guide to life for students at Durham University, with something for everyone, be they Durham University freshers, or already at the university and looking for articles to help them survive the year (or just procrastinate).
Durham’s nightlife, all in one place
From a quiet beer on a Sunday afternoon to a rowdy Saturday night, or simply a nice meal by the riverside, you’ll find the ideal venue on Durham Student.
The bailey colleges of the University of Durham are situated on Durham’s bailey – the area surrounding the castle (in which University College is situated), and are traditionally more difficult to be accepted in to than the hill colleges (especially University College and Hatfield, crest pictured). A friendly rivalry exists between each college, as well as between the rather aloof College of St Hild & St Bede and the hill and bailey colleges.
The hill colleges (of which one, Grey College, is pictured) are popular with students studying science(s) at the university, with their close promiximity to the ‘science site’ on which most, if not all, lectures for science degrees are held.
