Facilities Committee

Applications are invited for eight student representatives on the Hall Facilities Committee.

As a student representative, you will meet with Hall staff and members of the elected Residents’ Club Committee to help make decisions about:


  • fire safety
  • housekeeping
  • first aid
  • security
  • catering
  • smoking policy
  • maintenance
  • health promotion
  • reception services
  • recycling & re-use

There are four meetings a year, each lasting around one hour – so it’s not a huge commitment, and it’s a good point to add to your CV!

If you want to join, send a note of your name, room number & email address to facilities.committee@connaught-hall.org.uk no later than 6pm on 26 November.

If more than eight residents apply, members will be chosen randomly from the applications received. The first meeting will be in early December.

Remembrance Sunday & Armistice Day

A national two-minute silence will be held at 11.00 am on Remembrance Sunday (8 November) to remember those who have been killed or injured in wars and conflicts worldwide. Her Majesty The Queen will lead a national service of remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, starting at 10.30. There will be a further national two-minute silence at 11.00 am on Armistice Day (11 November), marking the end of the First World War.

At Connaught Hall, the beginning and end of the two-minute silence on both Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day will be marked by brief soundings of the fire alarm. We encourage residents and visitors to participate in a few moments of quiet reflection.
