Halls offer a vibrant and sociable environment and we have a range of areas to suit your needs, mood and requirements. Our study areas offer space to meet with small study groups or for some quiet study time. Some halls also offer a traditional library. For when you want to meet friends we provide five hall bars across our compuses each serving a themed food and drink menu and you can even use your lunch card here.
