Glen Eyre halls of residence

Glen Eyre is a large self-catered halls complex of 1900 rooms, but each individual hall still has its own character and community.

The halls here include our brand-new Chamberlain Hall (opened in September 2016), Hartley Grove, South Hill, Richard Newitt Courts, New Terrace, Old Terrace, Brunei House, Chancellors Courts and Beechmount.

Please note that J-block, where Glen Eyre reception is located, will be undergoing refurbishment during 2016/17 with work due to start January 2017. This may mean there is some construction noise on the site. Hours of work will be restricted to the normal working day and noise levels will be monitored. In addition, alternative study areas are provided for any students wishing to study away from their rooms and any potential disturbance.
