College Hall is a quartet of Grade II-listed, brick, two/three-storey buildings about a mile from the main campus. It was designed by Trevor Dannatt and Leslie Martin in 1957 and was for many years one of the University's main halls of residence.
College to reopen Autumn 2013 as a conference centre.
(2011) Apparently there are plans to convert the former College Hall complex into a state-of-the-art conference centre.
College Hall opened in 1947 as a women's Hall of Residence housed in buildings on the University's main site. In 1960, the Hall moved to purpose-built premises in Knighton, approximately one mile from the campus. The Hall became mixed in 1970 and the housed some 282 students in a combination of wings, detached houses and a main building. The wings A,B,C,D and E contained 180 single study bedrooms, together with appropriate utility rooms. The Hall also comprises six houses on Knighton and Carisbrooke Roads nearby - Spire, New House, Gardiner, Forster, Latimer and Herrick - which are similarly equipped, though with fewer single rooms. The main building contains the rooms for common use: the Dining Room, Library, Music and Games rooms, Senior and Junior Common Rooms etc. Also located here are the Offices of the Warden, Hall Secretary and Hall Manager.
