Covid-19 (coronavirus) Notice

The Covid-19 (coronavirus) infection has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organisation.

The health and wellbeing of Durham University students, colleagues and alumni is a top priority of the University and they are working hard across the University community to prepare for the possible spread of the virus, provide up to date information and advice and offer support as the situation develops.

To ensure we do not put any of our community at further risk, we have postponed a number of events around the world and are contacting all bookers directly.

Original event details were as follows:

Friday 18 – Sunday 20 September 2020

Is there a better place than Durham for an Indian Summer weekend? Prebends Bridge, the river banks, Palace Green, the Dun Cow, Hatfield Bar…

Did you matriculate or graduate in 2010, 2000, 1990, 1980, 1970 or 1960? Celebrate the anniversary in Durham with a group of your friends at the Reunion Weekend. There’s already a group of 1970 graduates recruiting to celebrate their golden anniversary, please get in touch if you would like to be connected with this group.

There will be an informal buffet in the bar on Friday evening and Hatfield Formal Dinner in hall on Saturday evening, leaving plenty of time in between for wandering around Durham, re-visiting old haunts. Fancy sporting an oar on the river? It can be arranged…

Stay in College, perhaps in your old room (but with the unimaginable luxury of en-suite facilities!) with breakfast in hall, all at special alumni rates – with an even lower rate for young graduates of the last decade.


Details and prices to follow, but for the moment – Save the Date!


Hatfield College is a vibrant and welcoming community to which each and every student, alongside other college members, belongs. Established in 1846, as the second college of Durham University, with the explicit purpose of being open to a wide range of students, we greatly value the rich diversity of our college members, who come from all sorts of backgrounds and places of origin, with all sorts of interests, experiences and views. We strive to ensure that all Hatfielders have the opportunities and encouragement to be the best they can be, reflecting the words of our motto, Vel Primus Vel Cum Primis.

About the Hatfield Association – Once a Hatfielder, Always a Hatfielder


The Hatfield Association was established in 1946, at a time when the future of Hatfield College, Durham University was uncertain – this was the first time that Hatfielders came together and probably the finest proof of the legendary Hatfield spirit.

Our aim is to ensure we have a strong, active and engaged network of Hatfield alumni (graduates), to facilitate and build strong relationships with the College and to support its educational and welfare needs.

To this end the Hatfield Association plays an active role in: organising annual reunions, helping to connect members through regular updates and publications, offering career advice for students through a partnership with SHAPED, supporting the outreach programme for schools and playing an active role in all three common rooms.

Our membership consists of thousands of Hatfield graduates, but we are always keen to connect with more!
