Admin HistoryThe halls of residence at the University of Nottingham have always been an important aspect of student life. Florence Boot Hall and Hugh Stewart Hall were the only pre-1948 halls at University Park, and were followed by Nightingale Hall and Cripps Hall, opened in the 1950s. Several further halls of residence were built in the 1960s, resulting from the attraction of campus life to students and the concept that all students should have at least one of their academic years living on campus. Some of the photographs were acquired during University history projects (see also UMP/11)
Custodial HistoryThese photographs have been acquired from staff associated with the halls of residence from the 1980s through to 2016.
DescriptionThe photographs relate to a number of of the halls of residence at University Park. Several hall year groups are represented. The images also show some hall based activities such as working in the library, the performance of hall plays and participation in charity fund raising events. Other photographs relating to halls of residence are to be found within other sections of UMP and also amongst photographs relating to the University donated by alumni and their families (NUP).
