How Hatfield works
At Hatfield the Head of College is called the 'Master', otherwise known as a Principal or Head of House. Our new Master from September 2017, Professor Ann MacLarnon, has overall responsibility for all aspects of college management, as well as leading the college community. We also have a Vice-Master and Senior Tutor, Professor Anthony Bash, who is there to oversee your pastoral and welfare care, the admissions process and the College mentoring system, assisted by the Assistant Senior Tutor, Dr Ellen Crabtree. Anthony Bash is also the Chaplain, helping to provide all the support you need. The Bursar, Ms Michelle Crawford, is responsible for ensuring that the college buildings, grounds, facilities and services are all in good order.
The collegiate system is one of the most distinctive features of Durham University. Colleges provide a unique environment for living and working, enabling students to achieve the best possible academic success and to develop their potential more widely. As well as its strong traditions, Hatfield is a forward-thinking college with a strong network of mentors drawn from within the University and beyond, supporting and encouraging students to make the most of their time at university. This is complemented by the very best professional support from our College staff.Professor Ann MacLarnon
