Hall Student Committees (HSCs):
Each Hall has a Hall Student Committee (HSC) made up of elected students from the Hall. Elections take place at the start of the academic year.
The HSC represents the students of the Hall, acting as their voice to Halls Management. They also organise social activities and events for the Hall using a pot of money made up of contributions from each resident’s rent.
The events and activities they organise range from smaller events like film nights, to large scale events like the Christmas and Summer Balls, to trips for the Hall. They also buy items for the Hall such as games consoles and sports equipment.
Previous events have included:
- Winter Wonderland Christmas Ball
- Summer Boat Party
- Carnifest – music and outdoor games
- Trips like Alton Towers, Farmageddon, Trafford Centre, nights out in Manchester
- Valentines Take Me Out

Formal Hall Dinners
Each Hall has a Formal Hall Dinner in the first term. The Formal Dinner is a three course meal with wine, usually followed by an EPIC after party, and gives everyone from the Hall a chance to dress up and enjoy a night of memories together.
