Connaught Hall Residents' Handbook 2004-5

Ratings: (0)|Views: 11|Likes:
Connaught Hall is a University of London intercollegiate hall of residence. We publish a Residents' Handbook every year; if you are looking for information about Connaught Hall because you are a current resident or are thinking of applying to Connaught, look for this year's (or next year's, if you looking between May and August) handbook in my Scribd profile. I have uploaded some older handbooks for historical interest only; they are not a guide to the hall's current rules and procedures.

RESIDENTS’ HANDBOOK 2004/2005
 
CONNAUGHT HALL
Connaught Hall was established in 1919, at 18 Torrington Square, by the Duke of Connaught as a memorial to the late Duchess. The Duke gave the Hall to theUniversity of London in 1928. It was not until 1961 that Connaught Hall movedto its present location in Tavistock Square: a converted Georgian terrace with aGrade II listed façade.From its foundation, Connaught Hall was a men’s hall of residence; but in 2001,following a review of the intercollegiate halls of residence, female students wereadmitted for the first time. The Hall now houses 207 full-time students of thevarious colleges and institutes of the University, with an even mix of men andwomen, and a diverse range of cultural and social backgrounds. Mostaccommodation is in single study-bedrooms, but there is room for ten students intwin rooms.Connaught Hall aims to provide a secure, supportive, and friendly environment inwhich residents can both study and socialise. The Warden, assisted by the Vice-Warden and four student Senior Members, works to ensure all residents areequally able to enjoy the Hall’s facilities as part of a peaceful, pleasant andsuccessful time at University; they deal with all matters concerning residents’welfare and discipline. The elected Residents’ Club Committee, meanwhile,organises social events and runs the Hall bar of behalf of the residents. Residentsare encouraged to get to know the Warden’s team, who can offer advice andassistance on academic and pastoral matters, and to participate on or with theResidents’ Committee, to shape the social programme to their requirements. Numerous conference rooms are available in Hall. Most of these are presentlyoccupied full-time by the City Lit Centre for Deaf People. During the day andearly evening, City Lit operate a variety of courses for both deaf and hearing people. Residents are asked to respect these activities; for they make a directfinancial contribution towards keeping student fees down and facilitatingimprovements throughout the Hall. Occasionally, other groups may hire meetingrooms; and during the summer, residential courses and conferences are often heldin the Hall.This booklet aims to help residents understand the Hall, its structure, and normal procedures. It should be read in conjunction with the
University of London Intercollegiate Halls of Residence Regulations
. Students in Connaught Hall areexpected to observe the letter and spirit of these conditions.The Warden, Bursar, and staff wish you an enjoyable and successful time atConnaught Hall.
