Welcome to the Hatfield Association – for all alumni of Hatfield College, Durham University

The Hatfield Association is a community of thousands of Hatfielders, both past and present. Our membership spans nine decades, with alumni from the 1940s through to current-day students. 

It was established in 1946 at a time when Hatfielders faced uncertainty due to plans to merge with Castle (perish the thought!). Since then, the Association has used the power of its community to enrich Hatfield students’ university experience and empower them to ‘be the best they can be’

Membership is open to all current and former students of Hatfield College, Durham University.

Read more about the Hatfield Association, including the events and initiatives we organise and the special benefits our members enjoy, on the About Us page.

Once a Hatfielder, Always a Hatfielder

With the unofficial motto ‘Once a Hatfielder, Always a Hatfielder’, the Association captures the sense of belonging that’s at the heart of the legendary Hatfield Spirit.

But don’t just take our word for it – see what the Hatfield Association has meant to other Hatfielders by watching our short video of the same name…
