Hatfield College is a college of Durham University in England. Founded in 1846 by the Rev. David Melville, it was the second college to be associated with the university, after University College (founded 1832). The college was originally called Bishop Hatfield’s Hall. It is named after Thomas Hatfield, Prince-Bishop of Durham from 1345 to 1381. The college’s founder pioneered the idea of catered residences for students which would later evolve to the now common practice of student residences.
