Halifax College :: Shared Description

Halifax as a college came into existence in 2003 becoming the eighth college at the University of York. The college is named after the 1st Earl of Halifax. The college consists of 8 courts of accommodation, five which had previously formed Halifax Court, before the colleges existence (Ingram, Irvin, Lindley, Wood and Younger). A sixth existing court named St. Lawrence had provided the post-graduate accommodation until the reopening of Wentworth College as the post-graduate college in 2001 completed the existing buildings. Two new courts were built and named Ainsty and Hickleton as part of the University Partnership Programme.
The college also has a reception and administration building, a bar (formerly called JJ's, which also used to serve (and deliver) pizza), and a Nisa (formerly Costcutter) mini supermarket. The college has no academic departments associated with it. The college sits to the south of Heslington Lane/Main Street and lies alongside 22 acres (the university sports fields) and Heslington Village. Whilst this is part of Heslington West campus, it is a lot more detached from the main campus than the other west campus colleges, and is also bordered on its north and west sides by private accommodation.
