Halifax College Students' Association
Halifax college is the biggest (and best) college on campus. Although slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of campus (but a short distance from the best sandwich shop on earth), Halifaxs presence is loud and proud. We are the current college sport cup winners, have amazing volunteering opportunities and always triumph on our RAG efforts. Our events are the diverse from our biweekly open mic nights and quiz to the brand new “Halifax Emporium” a student Festival ran for students by students, Halifax is popping off every day of the week. Halifax wellbeing works hard to keep halifax healthy and happy based on student feedback about what issues matter to them, with lots of events throughout the year such as pre meets before socials for BAME, LGTBQ+ and International students. Being the underdogs of the uni and the biggests and youngest college, there is plenty of space to grow, create new traditions, and let your voice be heard. So if you’re looking to make your mark- this is the college for you.
A smashing introduction to life at Halifax: renowned for it’s live music night with a famous act, a variety of unique events and not to mention being the only college to single handedly pack out clubs-- Halifax Freshers week is not to be missed.
