Conferences and Functions
University Hall was the first residence to be established at the University and is at present the largest of the student residences with 291 rooms. University Hall offers single full-board rooms to a wide diversity of students from different social, economic, regional and national backgrounds.
Unfortunately due to a Fire in April 2019 to our Main Hall building, changes have been made to our housing options offered. This includes the addition of The Village and Clark Wing in addition to our existing Townhouses. A date is yet to be confirmed when the Main Hall will open. University Hall is the most centrally located on-campus accommodation.
One resident’s view of life at University Hall:
"In my 4½ years at University Hall I have been provided with many opportunities to succeed on both an academic level and on a social level, with the many college functions that are organised to promote college spirit. The Fisher Shield is a great way for students to support their college in the sporting arena, and we won the shield 3 out of the 4 years I was able to participate! Living at University Hall has allowed me to grow up independently but not alone, as there are many people who are willing to help. I have made lifelong friends at University Hall and will never forget the good times that were had."
A volleyball court is available to all residents and is often used throughout the year especially when the inter-college sports competition is in full swing. A piano is located in the dining hall.
The fully air-conditioned Facilities Building with its huge windows overlooking the grounds and barbecue area, contains the dining hall, kitchen, office and conference rooms. This building is one of the finest on campus, with the upstairs Conference Rooms surrounded by wide verandahs to take advantage of the tropical climate.
Residential support is provided by our Senior Residential Assistant and a group of 14 Residential Assistants (RAs). In addition, our office is open between 9:00am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday, to help with administrative matters and our Hall is serviced by the JCU Halls of Residence catering and housekeeping teams. Together, we aim to provide you with a safe, supportive and pleasant place in which to live and learn.
