The couple were major benefactors to the university and Florence Boot was a strong campaigner for women’s rights in higher education.
Florence Boot Hall provided accommodation for eighty women students, with separate study bedrooms, dining hall, common room and library, all furnished by Boot herself.
To further celebrate Florence's immeasurable contribution to the fabric of the university, a Heritage Wall is being created on site as part of the refurbishment.
The wall will visually detail the story of Florence's life and times, to inspire students and describe her impact. It will incorporate photographs and documents, including an original prospectus and plans.
