Easy and cheap bus access to anywhere in Durham County, lots of open spaces and everything you need within walking distance. There's a grocery store and super cheap gym.

Being self catered and 100% ensuite is the best choice in a college. Josephine butler is the only college to offer this, and I think it's truly beneficial. Socially they always make sure events and formals are advertised and ensure everyone is involved.

Being part of the collegiate system was a huge part of my university experience and I wouldn't change a thing about it. Having wanted self-catered/ensuite accommodation thanks to my love of cooking and my hatred of the idea of sharing a bathroom with 6 other people, I chose Butler. Butler Bar is loved by those that frequent it and described as an aircraft hanger by others, but it's hard to dispute the fact that the onsite kitchen and cafe, huge bar, pool tables, library, space to plug in your laptop, wifi and TVs make it easy to work or play in this space. Many a day was spent in there working between lectures when the library was too full/quiet and again relaxing in the evening in PJs or parting away at a silent disco. I miss walking into the bar and finding a friendly face without fail. The rooms are a good size, clean and of course, ensuite, which is such a luxury. I've just realised how much I miss it, take me back!

Great community feel to the college and feels like a cosy unit to go back to after a night out or a day in lectures.
