Charles Morris Hall
Modern, on-campus accommodation in three residences
This popular residence is right on campus, meaning there’s only a short walk to the bars and cafes in the students’ union and the University’s teaching spaces. You’re also on the doorstep of the Edge – our sports facility.
The residence comprises of three parts, the newly-built Storm Jameson Court, and two smaller refurbished annexes, Dobree and Whetton Houses. Storm Jameson Court is a hotel-style complex. Rooms are en suite with junior double beds, a safe and telephone. Kitchens have a TV and are shared by around six students. Most rooms in Dobree and Whetton Houses have single beds and share a bathroom with one other person.
You’ll enjoy home comforts in your flat or on your corridor, such as flat-screen TV, comfy chairs and lots of fridge freezer space. There's also a well-equipped common room for everyone (in the East block of Storm Jameson) with pool tables, projector TV and comfy chairs. There are laundry facilities, cycle storage and disabled parking.

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of Charles Morris Hall.
Charles Morris Hall also has 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.
- A dry riser system to be used by the fire brigade in a situation where they want to use their fire hoses on any level of your building.
- Fire extinguishers and firefighting blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).
- A firefighting lift/elevator for use by fire fighters to assist them to get quick access to all building floors to put out a fire and help residents leave the building.(in Storm Jameson East)
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.

“ I’m in Dobree House in Charles Morris – my room is spacious and there is a huge desk which I absolutely love. Charles Morris is in the perfect location, with brand new facilities and an excellent common room. The staff and sub-wardens here are so sweet and helpful and are there if you ever need anything. I’m also so close to everything on the campus.”
