A message from the Provost:
All of us – staff and students – are at the University first and foremost as scholars, but a big part of what we do is realised through social activity, and much of this activity centres on the College.

Your time here gives you the chance to forge friendships which in some cases will last a lifetime, and to engage in new and exciting activities. This new site provides all the information you’ll ever need to get the best out of College life. You’ll find information on events happening throughout term and updates about what’s going on around the College. If you need help, no matter how trivial it may seem to you, please ask.

Our aims at Alcuin are to support your studies and to help you get maximum enjoyment out of your time at York! Everyone from Alcuin joins me in wishing you all the best for a rewarding time here. Enjoy yourself, have fun, and work hard and play hard – that way you can fully benefit from life at the College and at the University of York!
