Alumni and Friends

University College is fortunate to benefit from a wide range of support from the international community of Castle alumni (graduates of the College), who are proud to call Durham Castle their home.

We encourage University College alumni to stay connected with our vibrant community after graduation, to take part in our activities and to support the work of the College.

The Castle Society organises a range of events and opportunities from the annual reunion weekend, open to all Castle alumni, through to support for current students via funding for Wider Student Experience. By being a member of the Castle Society, our alumni have an opportunity to stay in touch with their peers and to network with the previous generations of graduates who have gone on to wide and varied careers across the globe. 

University College Durham Trust is the College’s charitable fund, which generously supports a range of scholarships and bursaries to Castle students as well as ensuring that we protect and preserve the College for the generations to come.  

Visit our dedicated Castle Society page for more information, including college news, how to arrange a visit to College and opportunities for getting involved. You can also find out how you can help the current generation by making a donation to the University College Durham Trust.
