Hi everyone,

I’m Madeleine and I will be this year’s services manager, which basically means I am responsible for the day-to-day running of the services and facilities within College. If you have any issues or questions about them, get in touch with me.

I study Economics and have been actively involved in many activities, both in Castle and the wider university. I have been a member of the Ents and the June Ball Committees, worked on the Toastie Bar, modeled in CCFS and been a part of the Panto. I played Mixed Lacrosse in first year, was University College Mixed Rounders Club President in 2018 and I have also played netball both for the college and for the university. Please feel free to ask me about any of these if you’d like any more info!

If you want to get in touch with me just send me an email at castle.servicesmanager@durham.ac.uk

For basic maintenance issues within your accommodation (i.e. blocked showers), please fill out a Maintenance Report Form, and the issue will be dealt with as soon as possible.
