Connaught Hall


Connaught Hall is a catered Hall which accommodates 230 students from across the University of London.

Two meals a day are served Monday—Friday in the spacious dining room, and brunch is served at weekends. The team aims to provide a welcoming, friendly and safe environment in which residents can study and socialise. A Residents Club Committee, elected from and by the student residents, provides social and sporting activities and runs the Hall bar. All residents are encouraged to join in with the social life of the hall.

The Hall is centrally located on Tavistock Square, which is 5 minutes walk to SOAS and within walking distance to Oxford Street, Soho and Convent Garden.
