Colleges Within Universities

Some Universities have a college system whereas students are divided both administratively and physically into different buildings. Typically a college is composed of four buildings forming a square with a quad in the middle. You have your friends here, your accommodation here, your dining hall here and libraries here too. Likely you’ll have some classes and tutorials within your college. Below are some videos describing colleges at Top Ranked Universities.

Note: You might hear Colleges within Universities referred to as “Residential Colleges”, but they more often than not extend beyond being merely a residence.
