Welcome to Butler Court!
Congratulations on making your first step towards joining what is without a doubt the greatest hall on campus.
This is the official page for Butler Court, where you can find out everything that's going on and purchase tickets for our events!
We are going to provide you with the best Fresher's week you can imagine. Our committee are currently in the process of organising a fortnight to remember, from fancy dress nights out to chilled out day events.
Butler Court has a history of providing the Student's Union with the loudest, the proudest and most insane fresher’s on campus. This is down to a history of fresher’s who get involved in every aspect of university, from inter-hall sports teams, charity events, volunteering in the local community and eventually having the opportunity to join our hall committee yourself to get involved - there is something for everyone so don't be afraid to get stuck in!
Our common room is unrivalled on campus. It is large but cosy, and a perfect place to hang out with friends with free use of our Sky HD, pool tables, table tennis, a playstation 4 and tonnes of comfy sofas!
At Butler Court we know that the secret to having the best possible time at university is to start saying yes to opportunities that come your way. Our tight knit community means we all have each others backs and are friends for life, so make this the first good choice of your university career and apply to Butler Court!
If you have any questions about the hall then I’d love to answer them, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or join the freshers facebook group and write on the wall.
I can't wait to meet you all in September!
