Welcome to New Students
Message from the Master
Welcome to Hatfield College!
You will have thought about this stage of your life for a long time and worked hard to make it happen. Now you know for sure it will be happening, and I expect you have started planning for your time in Durham. Whether you are a postgraduate or an undergraduate, we look forward to meeting you.
In coming to Durham and Hatfield, you will be joining a long tradition of excellence. The 'Hatfield spirit' is legendary but in the early days it can all be a bit overwhelming! We hope these web pages will provide you with practical advice and guidance so that you can be well prepared.
The Hatfield community is made up of all its members and will shortly include you! You will be a 'Hatfielder' and so help shape the future of College and define its spirit. There are as many ways of being a Hatfielder as there are individuals. There is no template beyond making the most of the opportunities offered to you. Be yourself, enjoy your time here and be the best you can be.
I look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you into the Hatfield community.
Professor Ann MacLarnon
