Our oldest residence, Lyddon Hall is made up of a large main hall and several beautiful Victorian houses, all full of character. Rooms are spacious and furniture isn’t fixed, so you can move it around to suit yourself. Most rooms are standard with shared bathrooms, with some of them having washbasins in the rooms. There are a small number of en suite rooms available and some of our rooms also have double beds.

Lyddon offers great facilities, including a well-stocked library with a grand piano. There's also a large TV room with a pool table. This residence has a traditional feel, reflecting its Victorian charm.

“I picked Lyddon due to its location on campus and its homely feel. It’s like a large house with annexes and has a relaxed vibe, it feels like one big family here. The Refectory is next door so it’s very easy to get our meals and it also means that we interact with the neighbouring catered halls too, like Ellerslie and Charles Morris. Moving into halls was scary at first, but everyone socialised and we all got to know each other very quickly.”

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of Lyddon Hall or its annexes.

Lyddon Hall and its annexes also have many features that enable the safe evacuation of individuals, including a fire detection and alarm system that exceeds legislative requirements. The automatic L (Life) type alarm system ensures that all areas of your residence are covered by detection, including bedrooms, kitchens, plant rooms, and communal areas.  Other fire safety systems installed for your protection include:

  • Fire containment between rooms, flats and areas within buildings. Walls, ceilings and door sets are designed to resist and prevent the spread of fire long enough for you to safely escape the building.
  • Fire extinguishers and firefighting blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).

In addition, we operate a system where local staff and fire wardens are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety duties, which include building inspections and routine fire safety checks.
