About the College

As the newest and largest college at York, we are home to just over 970 students - with backgrounds as international and UK undergraduates, postgraduates, and students with families.

Our well equipped and comfortable common room is the largest on campus. It is the venue for a wide range of Halifax College Student Association (HCSA) and College social activities, as well as being a place to relax, watch TV or films, play table tennis or have a hot drink.

The college benefits from a shop (Nisa Local), a computer room and a laundry. We are close to all the local amenities that Heslington village has to offer (banks, a well stocked grocery store, post office and pubs) and we are located midway between the campuses of Heslington East and Heslington West.

We offer informal, readily accessible and sensitive welfare support to students. Further, the College aims to enrich the social environment through providing places and opportunities for members of the College to meet and mix on equal terms - and to promote an active social programme for the membership and their guests.
