Kirkwood Avenue Hall

With a maximum of 68 full-time students, Kirkwood Avenue Hall offers the support and community of a first-year hall in a self-catered environment.  A new hall for 2017, Kirkwood Avenue Hall provides the flexibility for students with allergies, specific dietary requirements, or who just prefer the independence of self-catering.  Meals plans can be arranged at nearby University Hall.   

Kirkwood Avenue Hall offers multiple social spaces, study spaces, the UC Recreation Centre nearby to help maintain a balanced lifestyle, and the support of four Residential Assistants to ensure you make the most of your first year at UC.  Tutorials, activities and events are all offered to students with the opportunity to participate in inter-hall sporting and cultural competitions.

Single and ensuite (own bathroom) rooms are available.  Kitchens provide lockable cupboards for food storage and individual fridge and freezer space.

Bed linen is not provided but can be purchased on arrival.
