Campus

The college is located to the south of Durham city centre, on South Road. The steep incline of this road leads to Collingwood and the surrounding colleges being commonly referred to as 'Hill' colleges. Extended in 1994, Collingwood now has over a thousand students allocated to it, and approximately 550 bed spaces within the college. Not all students live in college during their time at the university, but all students in their first year and the majority of those in their final year are allocated a place. Durham (IPA: locally, in RP) is a small city and main settlement of the City of Durham district of County Durham in North East England. ...


Facilities

Although most Durham colleges are not used for teaching purposes, the college is equipped with a moderate library, music practice rooms and public computing facilities. Other welfare and entertainment facilities exist, including a bar, student-run shop, coffee shop, pizza shop, gym, television room, common room and various provisions for sports. During the summer of 2006, the music rooms were converted into a fully equipped recording studio, with a new JCR officer position being created to run it.


Being one of the newest colleges in Durham has led to Collingwood's facilities being frequently used for conference trade with external organisations. The money from such conferences is put back into the colleges to allow improvements, but perhaps unsurprisingly many argue that the need to please conference guests can lead to a conflict of interest.


Student organization

As with all colleges in Durham, the students organise and democratise themselves by creating and running a body known as the Junior Common Room, or more commonly JCR. All students of the college are JCR members unless they specifically request otherwise. The JCR is a constituent member of the Durham Students' Union which in turn is a constituent member of the National Union of Students. Thus, all student members of Collingwood are NUS members as well. The term Junior Combination Room or Junior Common Room (JCR) is used in many British universities (as well as at Harvard College in the United States) to refer to the collective of students (similar to a students union) at a constituent part of a university, typically a college or a...
