Every year University College organises a range of virtual and in-person events for our friends and alumni, to help bring our community together. This is a great opportunity to meet with your old friends or make new ones. Our events are open to everyone – whether you studied with us last year or 50 years ago!

Alumni Gathering in London

From 6pm on 15th November we will be bringing the Durham Castle 950th Anniversary celebration to London! Join Professor Wendy Powers, Castle Principal, for an informal evening gathering and an opportunity to reconnect with other Castle alumni.

When: 15 November 2022, 18:00 till late

Where: Clothworkers Hall, London


Murder and Mulled Wine

You are invited to Lord Jolyon Jape's splendid Christmas party. The year is 1932 and this will be a night to remember. But there is an unexpected guest, a Bulgarian ballet dancer and a body in the library!

It's time to turn detective and solve the case of Murder & Mulled Wine...if you can.

When: 11 December 2022

Where: Durham Castle


We are always looking for volunteers who would like to help by organising events for Castle and Durham alumni locally or by providing venues for alumni gatherings in London or other cities in the UK or abroad. If you feel that this might be something you might be able to offer, please let us know.
