Halifax sits at the edge of Heslington village, with houses set around leafy courtyards and surrounded by sports fields and trails.

We have our own mini-mart and cash point, and a short walk (or free bus ride) gets you to Campus East or West in minutes.

As a member of the largest and most residentially diverse college, you'll mix with undergraduates, postgraduates, visiting students and families. We have a strong sense of community and pride ourselves on being a global and inclusive college, and facilitating the personal growth of our members.
