Hatfield College

Hatfield Association

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

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 aims.

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 supporting College development.

Our membership

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

On accepting membership of Hatfield College as either an undergraduate or postgraduate student you are eligible to join the Hatfield Association by signing up and paying the lifetime subscription fee. If you did not join and pay your subscription whilst you were studying at Hatfield but wish to join now we would be delighted to hear from you.
