Hatfield College Levies 2021-22

Opt-in Charges 

Junior Common Room (JCR) Membership

£240 (one-off payment for the duration of the course).

Both Full and Part Bursaries include this item.  Eligible students should sign up for JCR membership, and the cost will be covered by the Hatfield Trust on their behalf.

The Junior Common Room (JCR) is the hub of undergraduate student life in the College and provides many opportunities and events to enrich your student experience at Durham. Paying the JCR levy transforms the College from being a place to live to being a vibrant community full of opportunity. The levy enables students to participate in a wide range of Hatfield sport, music, drama, volunteering, arts and much more. Membership also offers use of the College gyms (after gym induction), subsidised formal meals, and tickets to Hatfield JCR-run events from Hatfield Day to our annual College ball. This is a one-off payment for the duration of a student's period of study for their undergraduate course. You have the right to opt out of this charge if you do not wish to be a member of the JCR. Students who opt out are still able to use College facilities. However, non JCR members may be charged a higher price for JCR events and opportunities, they are ineligibile to join JCR Clubs and Societies and if they wish to use the gym there will be an annual subscription to pay.

A one-off payment of £25 gives you lifetime membership of the Hatfield Association, ensuring you are connected from your very first day until well after graduation. As members of the Association say, ‘Once a Hatfielder, always a Hatfielder.
