Much of what goes on in Halls is managed by the Halls Life team, from Welcome Events to the End of Year balls and BBQs over Summer. See below for the variety of events and opportunities available and make sure you're following your Hall on Social Media to stay updated all year round.
Halls Give it a Go
The Halls Give it a Go programme (GIAG) is run by the Guild of Students and the Halls Life Team and gives you the chance to try loads of new things. Most of the activities are either free or heavily discounted (up to 75% off). GIAG gives you a chance to try something new, without paying the high price tag! Previous events have included: Paintballing, Indoor rock climbing, Makeup Masterclasses; Trips to Christmas Markets and Chester Zoo; Free sports classes; and skills sessions like cookery classes and CV workshops. Halls GIAG trips and events will be advertised on our Halls Facebook pages, so make sure you keep an eye out!
Halls Student Committees
Each Hall has a Halls’ Student Committee (HSC) that anyone can be a part of. Residents work together to make sure that everyone has the best time whilst living in Halls by attending meetings and making sure students opinions are heard. HSCs have a budget to promote a feeling of community by running events and trips or purchasing items students decide they need. Some example events previous HSCs have organised are Nights out in Manchester, Chinese New Year celebrations. Movie Nights and Charity events (e.g. Children in Need and Comic Relief fundraising)
Becoming a member of the HSC it is an excellent way to make new friends and represent your fellow students, and even better than that it will appear on your Higher Education Achievement Record which future employers will look at when you graduate. The HSC meets once a week and it is an excellent way to make new friends and represent your fellow students! If you are interested in joining your HSC you can just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know when your committees meeting is. You can also find out a bit more about exactly what it involves here.
