We are delighted to welcome you to Florence Boot Hall .
Occupying a site in the University Park near the Lodge Gates at the west entrance of the campus, the hall faces south-east and commands a lovely view of the west end of the lake terminating in a water garden. It enjoys a priviledged position on about four acres of grounds, including two hard court tennis courts and a beautiful inner quadrangle. Its close proximity to the main Trent Buiilding and most departments is enjoyed by students and staff .
The oldest hall on campus, it was founded in 1928 through the benefaction of Florence Boot the wife of Jesse Boot, the Chemist. Neo-Georgian in style with early art-deco detailing, the hall has a timeless atmosphere and has retained some of its original furniture.
Unlike most Halls, accommodation within Florence Boot Hall is not divided into blocks, the Hall consists of one building, making it very homely, sociable and friendly.
We hope that you will feel at home here and look forward to accompanying you through your first steps at University !
