As a fully-catered College (during term times), Van Mildert offers three meals a day, seven days a week. Throughout the week, between specific times, the lunch and evening meals are served at the High Table, with breakfast and weekend meals available from the servery.

Three or four times a term, College puts on Formals, where all three common rooms dress up and come together for a special meal, often in celebration (such as the Christmas and Valentine’s Day Formals). Before every Formal, there will be a collection box outside the Lakeside Room for the Durham Foodbank. Foodbanks have been opened across the country, and provide emergency food for local people in crisis.

Each year, Van Mildert College offers six competitive bursaries, each worth up to £2,000, to MCR member registered for higher degrees at Durham. The College also offers Travel Bursaries, to help towards travel expenses incurred as part of your study. Separately, the Van Mildert College Trust funds a full Postgraduate Scholarship for three years of study.
