Horrible accomodation. Just horrible
Because I'm a new student, I haven't been to this hall yet. But the hall looks really good through pictures.
I met my friends for life at Van Mildert... 18 of us all on the same halls corridor stayed friends the entire 3 years and I couldn't have asked for more.
The best student accommodation across UK. The rooms are cleaned quite often by nice cleaning staff and the internet is fast. MCR/SCR buffets every Wednesday provide excellent social experience. The formal dinners provide high quality food and service and the everyday food is also good. Hall management staff are nice and helpful.
Loved every minute!
Excellent college in a good location (especially for sciences), lots of fun events and an amazing place to live!
Great fun. Good food and all round the best college in Durham.
Honestly couldn't recommend more. You're not just paying for food and a room, you're paying for the experience that comes with it. Incredibly welcoming, inclusive and has a huge range of societies and sports.
Trust me it's bad
Good location, not modern, catering is good and gets cleaned regularly
Van Mildert boasts relatively new accommodation, when looking at the castle for example, but I would say that this works in it's favour. The heating works, it's cleaned and maintained regularly, the rooms are allowed double-glazing; none of it is 'listed', which means greater comfort for all! It has the largest dining space of any Durham college, which overlooks the famed body of water: the 'lake'. It's a most pleasant lake, supporting many varieties of wildlife including the college's mascot: the duck. Many of it's sports teams are consistently revered, however the music scenes change rather a lot from year to year, depending upon who's involved. College "bops", socials, formal halls, balls, and other massive social events assert college as a social hub, and though you don't have to be involved all the time, it could well form the largest aspect of your social life. It is a hill college, leaving it 10-15 minutes outside of the city, but I never found this to be an issue whatsoever.
