Welcome to Collingwood MCR!

-The home of Collingwood Postgraduates, Erasmus and 4th Year Undergraduates.

Martin Luther King Jr once wrote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”

At Collingwood we answer this everyday through our community. As fellow ‘Woodswomen’ and ‘Woodsmen’ we stick together and we help each other both academically and personally.

The result of our giving community is one that flourishes socially with strong friendships quickly developing amongst all our students.

This has been my fourth year at Collingwood College and at Durham. In that time, I have come to admire the diversity and different unique qualities all 16 colleges bring to Durham University. But Collingwood will always stand above all other colleges for me because of its superb character. We are academically driven to excel and want to help others do the same. But in addition, it is the strong willed, loyal and caring that find their home at Collingwood. It is a place where we look out for one another and you never feel alone. A place where our vast resources enable us to cater for students’ diverse interests and goals and create long-lasting memories. I invite you to look around our website, and as is always the case at Collingwood, if you need any help, all you need to do is ask.

We hope to see you at Collingwood soon,

Best wishes,

Richard Morgan
