What is the Hatfield Association?

The Hatfield Association is a community of thousands of Hatfielders, past and present. Our job is to support the development of our members, both during their time in College and beyond.

We do this by working with the JCR and MCR on student support initiatives, helping to publish the Hatfield Record (an annual account of all things Hatfield), and arranging various reunion and networking events for our members.

Why join?

One of the key ways we support undergraduates is through opportunities to connect with Hatfield alumni working in various fields, allowing you to seek career advice and make contacts ahead of graduating.

And once you leave Durham, we keep you connected to Hatfield and its community through regular updates and events, including reunion weekends, London meet-ups and (excitingly) the chance to return to formal!

You’ll also be able to ‘give back’ to the College we already know you’re going to love by getting involved in our various initiatives.

How to join?

A one-off payment of £25 gives you lifetime membership of the Hatfield Association – based on average life expectancy that’s just 36p a year!

So sign up today to secure all the benefits. You can sign up to the Hatfield Association (and various other bodies including the JCR) by completing the Student Levies online form available on the Hatfield College, Durham University website.

But don’t just take our word for it – see what the Hatfield Association has meant to other Hatfielders by watching our new video!
