Your Data and DARS

In order to improve our communications with Somervillians and friends of the College, we store our data in DARS.

The Development and Alumni Relations System (DARS) provides a common source of data on all alumni, donors, students, staff and friends of the collegiate University. Our long-term intention behind this shared resource is to improve mutual understanding, by enhancing the quality of our communication at all levels and developing a better appreciation of our relationship with alumni, donors and friends.

Please see for information on the way in which your personal data are held and used in DARS. If you no longer wish to be contacted by Somerville by email, or wish to alter the way your data are held and used, please send a suitably worded email to
