General information

This lively friendly hall takes its name from Professor Elvyn Richards, the University's second Vice-Chancellor from 1967 to 1975, a leading exponent of aircraft design and a world authority on noise acoustics. In 2009 the Hall re-located into new en-suite accommodation developed with our partners UPP.

Elvyn is the largest catered hall, it’s also the best. You meet so many different people who are always up for some fun!
