Social events are a great part of student life and one of the best ways to meet the people you’ll be living with for the rest of the year. Some of you may even find one or two people you will be friends with for the rest of your life. That’s why we pull out all the stops and stage some fantastic events throughout the year.

Freshers’ Fortnight

This is when we go all out with two weeks jammed full of events to make sure you have the best possible start to your year and every opportunity to get to know each other.


Every Sunday at noon we put on a free bunch in the common room. This is a good chance to catch up, get some free food and possibly recover from the night before.


This is your chance to put your culinary skills to the test. On the first Monday of every month one floor’s kitchen hosts a meal for the entire hall. Watch this space for more details.

Formal Dinners

We think it’s important every now and then to put aside the student stereotype and get all dolled up for a classy black-tie evening of dinner and dancing. These are some of the best nights out in the calendar, so make sure you don’t miss out. Our first dinner is the Coming Up Dinner at the end of Freshers’ Fortnight.

DVDs & Games

The hall owns a PS3, Nintendo Wii and large collection of DVDs which you are able to borrow in return for a deposit. PS3/Wii deposits are £20 and DVDs will require a £5 deposit. DVDs can be borrowed for up to 3 days at a time, however the PS3/Wii must be returned the same night else you will lose £5 of your deposit per day. To borrow any of these items, please knock on the door of the duty warden. Note, borrowing of the PS3,Wii and DVDs must be done before 11pm.

What else?

Throughout the year we’ll be hosting parties, BBQs and days out, whether that be Halloween party games or transforming the common room into a beach party with 2 and ½ tonnes of sand. Well that’s all from me for now, keep your eyes peeled for posters around the hall and if you have any ideas for events you’d like to see, why not come have a chat to us about it and we’ll see what we can do.
