Halls Associations are a community for your halls of residence. They work like a society where a committee is selected from those who live in the halls to run the Association. Every member of the relevant halls is automatically a member of their Halls Association and has the right to get involved in its events, and apply to be a committee member.
The committee is responsible for organising events, managing bank accounts and visiting every flat within their specific residences to introduce themselves and make sure everyone is okay. The committee will also meet with the student wardens and the residences managers on a regular basis to keep in contact.
This year, we are trialling Halls Associations in:
- Talybont Gate
- Gordon Hall
- North Campus (Colum Hall, Colum Road Houses and Aberconway Hall)
If you are in those Halls and you want to get involved, then please complete the application form below.
