College Accommodation during Christmas Vacation


The college is closed for two weeks over the Christmas/New Year period. Students will be required to depart from College on Monday 22 December 2014 before 2pm and return to their room in College from 9 am on Friday 2 January 2015. For those students who may require accommodation and a part-catered let over that period, the University is providing this at Grey College but you do need to book a room and pay for the package – it is based on a first come first served basis.

All the details of how and when you can book are in this Christmas communication document:

Christmas Vacation Communication 2014

A luggage collection/delivery will be available – further details will follow for those students who have booked accommodation/meals.

ENTS pass

What is it?

Another year of fantastic events is fast approaching and we know you want to attend. What’s better is you can save over £20 if you buy an ENTS pass before the deadline: 16th of November.

ENTS passes guarantee you a place at the top Trevs parties this year:

§ Informal Ball – a big knees up extravaganza to see out the term (3rd of December)

§ Trevs Night – a high-concept themed event, a celebration of all you wonderful Trevelyanites (as yet unconfirmed date in 2nd term)

§ Summer Ball – The BIGGEST and BESTEST night of the year – one that you must certainly won’t want to miss (10th of June)


ENTS passes come at the lowly price of £70 (especially considering Summer Ball will cost £55 on the door, it’s a bargain).

If you can’t pay £70 this term, you can split the cost in half. You pay £35 by the deadline (again, 16th November) and then the other £35 by the 31st January 2015.

 How to get a pass?

There are THREE options (as always):

 1. Online

· Our bank account number: 43547930

· Sort code: 20-27-41

· Account name: DURHAM UNIVERSITY TREVELYAN COLLEGE JCR (**if this doesn’t fit DU Trevelyan College or similar will do**)

· Reference: ENTS [Surname] [First Name] e.g. ENTS Shepherd Bridget

 2. Cheque

Please make cheques payable to DU Trevelyan College JCR and place it in the box on the cobbles in a sealed envelope with the name(s) on the front.

 3. Cash

You can bring cash to JCR Exec drop-ins (10am-12pm every day) or Treasurer drop-ins.

International tea party 2 November

From Hannah and Olivia:

Hi guys,

we felt that even though we’ve had various meet and greets, we still haven’t actually had a chance to get together and get to know each other and where we all come from. So we’ve decided to throw an irregular tea party on Sunday the 2nd of November as a belated informal welcome!

We thought it would be a nice idea if people got up and told us about themselves and where they come from, along with lots of other fun things – all thrown in with lots of tea, coffee and cake.

Please feel free to bring anything interesting from your home country along with you, a bit like a show and tell.
