A small hall in a residential area that's convenient if you're studying Mathematics, Physics & Astronomy, Engineering or Computer Science.


Gordon Hall is a part-catered hall of residence. It is a small hall located in a residential area and is particularly convenient for those studying Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy, Engineering or Computer Science. The evening meal service provides students with a hot meal Monday to Friday except during vacations. Generally the meals are served between 4.30pm – 7.30pm Monday to Thursday and 4.30pm - 6:30pm on Fridays at the nearby Trevithick Restaurant in the Queen’s Buildings.

At Gordon Hall you’re only 5 minutes walk away from the city centre and 10 minutes away from the Students’ Union so everything you need is literally on your doorstep! Everyone talked to everybody else and eating dinner together meant it was very easy to meet new people. I made some of my best friends at Gordon Hall!
