A large hall and several beautiful Victorian houses
Right next to the students’ union and the refectory, Lyddon Hall combines the convenience of being on campus with traditional surroundings. Our oldest residence, Lyddon Hall is full of quirky character. It’s made up of a large main hall and several beautiful Victorian houses.
Rooms are spacious and furniture isn’t fixed, so you can move it around to suit yourself. Most rooms are standard, with shared bathroom, some also have a washbasin in the room. There are a small number of en suite rooms. Some rooms have a double bed.
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.

At least one vegetarian option at each meal. During Ramadan, we can provide for you to eat after sunset. Please make us aware of any special dietary requirements (e.g. diabetes) or food allergy so we can assist you any way we can. You may find you benefit from the option of self-catered accommodation if you are very specific about the food you like to eat.
The University has tested samples of Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding where it has been used on our residential buildings and we can advise you that no ACM cladding has 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.

Location, essentials and travel
Georgia Thompson, BA English and History
“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.”
