The community within the college is incredible and I have so much fun here, however the facilities aren't of a great standard. The rooms are fine however the price we pay for them isn't relative. This can all be overlooked however as the people here and the social aspect (like events and parties etc.) are so so good!
Trevs is friendly because it is smaller than most other colleges, but it is not too small. You still see new people every now and then but it is easy to find your friends. We are super proud of our hexagonal architecture which can seem to be weir for others, but it really makes the college look more cozy and less like a school. The college is also a nice mix of new and old - we do have gowned dinners but we're not posh. There's a lot happening in Trevs and most seem to enjoy their time here.
The wifi is slightly dodge and signal is variable depending on who you're with, but every other aspect of Trevs is pretty much perfect. We have a great bar (which is subsidised so very cheap), comfortable common room (or, 'undercroft') and the food is better than my mum's (a huge achievement).
A great place for Freshers, everyone is very friendly and amiable, they don't make you feel awkward at all, it's extremely welcoming and homey - especially for people who have left their families for the first time. The Freps are amazing! They are 110% committed to you and your well being, they are so nice and easy to get on with, and really helpful! Though the only thing about Trevs, is that it's about 10-15 minutes from Durham City and from the majority of the lecture halls. But absolutely love it!
I love Trevs - of course it isn't for everyone, but if you are sociable, bubbly, want to be involved in college life, and looking for some generally awesome people to spend the next few years with, then look no further.
