The college system is a major part of student life at York. Every student is a member of a college and most live there for their first year at York and remain a part of its community if and when they live off campus. Each of the nine colleges has its own distinctive identity, atmosphere, facilities and history. There is also a very healthy college rivalry at York; whether its for the College Cup, the best events or the most money raised for RAG each year.

Every college always has a lot going on throughout the academic year, so be sure to check out their websites by clicking on the links below:
