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

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.

Had the best first year at Collingwood, I loved my corridor and it was so easy to meet people and get involved in college life.

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.

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.
