College mentors can best be described as "interested others" who support and guide a group of students during their time at Durham University. The purpose is to provide a stable and supportive contact for students as an alternative to their hard pressed academic departments; to get to know students as people in their own right on a social basis; and signpost them to support networks should they find themselves in difficulties. All first year students are allocated to a College Mentor, they may 'opt in' in later years. Postgraduates have regular 'stay in touch nights'.
