Hall Facilities

Open JCR

This is the way in which we refer to our main common room, at the centre of the hall. People occasionally meet there to share a take-away, to assemble before formal dinner and to relax with a cup of tea or coffee after dinner whilst having a long and insightful debate. There are serval cosy chairs along with a large wooden table. In addition, there is a table tennis table with the racquets and balls in the foyer.


Closed JCR

A meeting room, just next to the Packard room, with a large table and more than a dozen chairs. In here, every Thursday the JCR will be holding meetings. After chapel on a wednesday, people often meet here for a glass of port before dinner.

Snooker Room

Located down a flight of stairs outside, behind the closed JCR, the snooker room is one of slems’ hidden gems. With a full-sized snooker table, chalk and two house cues you will find everything you need to play a game or two. To access it you will need to rent a key from Dalton Ellis.


Packard Room

A ‘hangout’ room just before the Closed JCR. If you wish to either watch a football or rugby game along with mate. The room has a flat screen TV and several sofas.



The Hall Gym is located outside the main building and right next to the Lodge. The gym includes plenty of useful equipment like a treadmill, stepper, vast range of dumbbells, punch bag and many more! Membership for the gym can be purchased for £65.
