Halls of residence

A hall of residence (plural halls of residence, British English) or residence hall (North American English) is a type of residential accommodation for large numbers of students. Such halls can be self-catering, or have canteen/dining facilities. In some cases students have to share rooms. Some halls are single-sex, or have single sex floors or wings. Halls of residence are normally owned and run by the university or college which they serve.
