Inspire the next generation

We are proud of our reputation as one of the friendliest Durham colleges and we aim to constantly provide opportunities for our students, staff and alumni to meet, engage, teach, learn, and inspire. There are opportunities for Stephenson alumni to deliver talks and workshops in College, as well as support students through more informal networking and employability focused activities such as our Connections dinners. 
All Stephenson alumni are eligible to join our Senior Common Room. We would also welcome any alumni members who are interested in becoming development coaches to current Stephenson students, helping them make the most of the opportunities available to them whilst at University and prepare them for life after university. Email to find out how you can be involved. 

Creating opportunity

Stephenson College is committed to ensuring that all students can take advantage of every opportunity during their time in Durham. No student should feel prevented from studying at Stephenson because of their financial background, or experience hardship while studying here. By making a gift to Stephenson College, you are creating an opportunity for a talented young person to not only explore their academic interests at a world class institution but to also experience all that Stephenson and Durham have to offer. Any gift, of any amount can have a huge impact on the life of a Stephenson student. If you are interested in supporting Stephenson students financially, do get in contact. 

Alumni community


Stephenson alumni events provide an opportunity for members to reconnect with their peers, as well as opportunities for networking and mentoring. Our upcoming alumni events are advertised in the monthly Newswire email as well as via our alumni mailing list.
