Welcome to Castle Day 2017!

This year, we have aimed to make Castle Day an event that is truly enjoyable for the whole college.  Castle Day will celebrate our college with a plethora of food, drink and entertainment, as well as a Castle Archive Exhibition. The Castle Day Committee has representatives from all common rooms, that has made the event more accessible and inclusive for our college.


Castle Day 2017 will embody our college moto – Non Nobis Solum – as we come together not as individuals, but as a community, to celebrate the place and people that make University College the welcoming and dynamic environment that it is.
