Most helpful review

As any Durham student would probably say about their own college, Collingwood is the best college in Durham. Consistently top of the sports tables and an incredibly friendly and social atmosphere, from the first formal of term to summer ball and Collingwood day, Collingwood knows how to have fun

Collingwood have offered so much over the three years, not only the first year when we lived in - a true community!

I was allocated a standard room at Collingwood college. Although my room was spacious, clean and had a lovely view, there was only 1 shower and 2 toilets on a floor of 10 people. Neither of the toilets had sinks and during the end of term I noticed that one was crawling with bugs. My floor were quite rowdy so quite often I was woken up at 2am. Given that they were freshers, this is understandable however opening my door one morning to find feces right outside was unacceptable. After eating something I was allergic to, I suffered from anaphylaxis (which can be life threatening.) However, the porter on duty (only staff I could find) didn't think I was eligible for an ambulance despite it being written on the epi pen he administered. I went back to my room after I high dose of adrenaline, felt ill and came back downstairs to reception. I was then told to order a taxi for myself to A&E.

Security was good, however didnt have a good experience with fellow hall residents who were mainly drunk scousers and geordies - clearly not fans of their fellow asian residents.

Best time of my life spent here. Best college bar in Durham, fantastic open community with something for everyone. Spend first year in college but you're closely connected here for all of your time at uni. Haven't met anyone with a bad word to say about the college.

Fairly expensive considering how poor the food is and that most rooms are shared bathroom. Good JCR (Common room) with a super cheap bar and amazing toast bar. Inconvenient location for most arts students, and for the town centre.

Basically- all around mediocre college that offers little other than lad culture from its freshers week to its welfare and student government.--The student government is run in an immature style. It promotes lad culture. It acts as a baby sitter for freshly pampered children straight out of the 'best' schools that failed to teach them how to take care of themselves or care for other people in a loving and respecting way. The food is atrocious yet you are not allowed meal plans- you must pay for three meals a day for the year no matter what (they need to catch up with the modern university world)..

The bar is by far the best and freshers week was amazing, the diet of potatoes can get a bit much and the kitchens are minimalist if but I still loved it there and miss it.
