Hatfield College

Membership of Hatfield

The application process for postgraduate college membership is through the Colleges' Postgraduate Office (CPO). Once you have accepted your academic offer, you will be contacted by the CPO inviting you to apply for college membership, and if applicable, college accommodation.

If you are a part-time or distance learner, you will be allocated a college according to your course.

If you have any questions to ask about becoming or being a postgraduate member of Hatfield please contact Professor Anthony Bash, the Senior Tutor.

The Middle Common Room

All Hatfield postgraduates agree to become members of the Middle Common Room (MCR), the student body that represents all postgraduates in the College. There are two types of membership of the MCR:

EITHER: (for those who are following a full-time programme of study) you will be a Full Member of the MCR;

OR: (for those who are studying part-time or who are distance learners) you will be an Affiliated Member of the MCR. (Affiliated Members may, if they wish, apply to be Full Members).

Further information on the benefits of the different types of membership can be found by following the links on the left-hand tabs or by downloading and reading the MCR Handbook below. Please see the section of Fees and Finance for information on membership costs.
