Hatfield College

Summer Congregation 2017

Congratulations to all Hatfield students congregating in the Summer. We do hope that we will see you at Congregation. Please find below some information on congregation arrangements in College which may be of interest to you.


It may be that you will want to stay overnight in Durham, either on the night before, or the night of your degree ceremony, in which case College would be delighted to offer accommodation to you and your guests. However, as there is limited availability, rooms will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Standard single rooms (Bailey House) cost £23.00 per person per night, or single en-suite accommodation (Pace Building) costs £40.00 per person per night. Accommodation in our 4 star B&B twin/double en-suite rooms (A & B Stairs) cost £72.00 per room per night. Breakfast is included in all of the rates.

Graduands' Dinner

We are organising a dinner for graduands and guests on the evenings of Tuesday 27 June, Wednesday 28 June and Thursday 29 June, to be held in the College Dining Hall, 6.30pm for 7.00pm (dress code is lounge suit). The cost will be £25.00 per person, including a drink on arrival. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us when you make your booking.

Car Parking

There is limited car parking in College; this is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis on the day. If, however, you have disabled parking requirements, please do let us know.

It is advisable to complete the booking form for graduation week as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Please note that we cannot accept bookings over the telephone. An invoice requesting payment will be emailed to you once our booking form has been received and processed.
