Founded in 1846, Hatfield College is the second oldest College in Durham University. It is located between the World Heritage site of the Norman Cathedral and the banks of the River Wear, on one of the oldest streets in Durham. Hatfield has a very interesting history, and it continues to grow and change, building on its heritage and traditions to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

For a more detailed look at Hatfield College, two books are available by Arthur Moyes who was the College Archivist. They are Hatfield 1846 - 1996 and Be the Best You Can Be.
