Trevelyan College
Senior Common Room

Trevelyan College

Welcome to the Trevelyan SCR web site. These pages provide useful information for both current and prospective members of the Senior Common Room.

Dear friends,

Welcome back to College for the upcoming Easter term in the 50th Anniversary year of the college. All sorts of celebration events are being planned, and I will let you know about them as they are announced.

Meanwhile, term starts again on Monday 25th April 2016 so our calendar of formals, talks, music and other events begins again. I will be sending out Dates For Your Diary emails as usual, but please also remember to keep an eye on the website for announcements, particularly about shared events between the three common rooms.

We have several new visiting fellows joining us this term, and I hope they all enjoy their stay with us and get into college life and SCR life. As ever, we welcome new members, so if you're an SCR member please introduce your friends and colleagues to Trevs, and if you're not a member yet but are browsing college websites because you're new to Durham, please get in touch with one of the committee members to find out more. We dine together reguarly, not only at formal dinners, but also in a more relaxed way over lunch, and we also have a cosy common room where SCR members can relax, have a coffee, and now we're fully wired, check their email and do a bit of work if they are so inclined! I hope to see many old and new friends in College over the next term,

Best wishes,

David (SCR President)
