College Hall was opened in 1882 in Byng Place to provide accommodation for the rising numbers of female students at the University of London. It was recognised as a hall of residence for women students by the Senate of the University of London in 1910. In 1932 it was recognised that the Byng Place site was not large enough for a proposed new hall and moved to its current site on Malet Street.
The Hall is centrally located with the major attractions within walking distance or a short bus or tube ride away. For your convenience, we have included some useful advice about getting around the city.Getting Here Booklet (pdf)
There is little on-street parking in the area. The nearest car park is beneath the Royal National Hotel in Bedford Way. Note that the Hall is within the central London Congestion Charging zone. For details see www.camden.gov.uk or www.cclondon.com.
