Halifax College

Welcome to Halifax College!

Located close to cultivated fields and nature, and as the college with the largest number of residents (nearly 1,000), you won’t be short of friends to meet at Halifax.

Our sense of community spirit really is infectious, so much so that a horse once had to be escorted from St Lawrence Court back to its stable by security. For students and wildlife alike, clearly Halifax is a wonderful place to be!

Our STYM was sooooo nice and helpful and was real with giving advice, because she’s been in our positions before. I liked her a lot and think she did literally the best job. She keeps up with us on the Facebook chat when she’s not organising kitchen meetings.
