Bookings for High Table meals should be made through the S.C.R. on-line system (https://www.dur.ac.uk/castle.scr/members/) two days before the day of the meal. Bookings cannot be altered after this time.

SCR FACILITIES

S.C.R. ON LINE: The S.C.R. on-line system (https://www.dur.ac.uk/castle.scr/members/) should be used to book meals, and to update membership details. (If your email address is registered here, you will receive regular news and reminders about S.C.R. events.) If you cannot access the system, please contact the SCR Secretary.

FELLOWS’ GARDEN: During the summer, the Garden may be used by members for bowls or croquet: the key can be signed out from the Porter’s Lodge. Fellows' Garden may however be booked for commercial events. To avoid disappointment please check with the College Secretary, Paula Furness.

STUDENT FACILITIES: Facilities available to S.C.R. members include the Undercroft Bar and (in Bailey Court) the snooker room and the launderette.

THE CHAPEL: Details of services and other Chapel events can be found at https://www.dur.ac.uk/castle.chapel/ or by contacting the Chapel Clerk Michael Shie..

GUEST ROOMS

Rooms, including the Bishop’s and Chaplain’s Suites, are booked with Event Durham or at the Porters Lodge: 0191 334 43800. Rooms are available at reduced rates for the personal guests of S.C.R. members only (and not, for example, for Departmental guests).

Members with guests staying in College and taking meals at High Table are personally responsible for introducing them into the Common Room before their first main meal.

For security reasons members are asked to enquire at the Porters’ Lodge in advance of visits to show guests around the Castle, and to bear in mind that some members may not be known to the Porter on duty. Both student and commercial events may mean that members cannot enter some parts of College.
