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 key information 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 bbq's to bouncy castles, and fancy dress nights out to relaxed day events.
Butler Court has a history of providing the Student's Union with the loudest, proudest and most insane freshers on campus. This is down to a history of freshers who get involved in every aspect of university, from inter-hall sports, charity events, volunteering and eventually having the opportunity to join our hall committee - there is something for everyone so don't be afraid to get stuck in!
To learn more about different sections, you can contact anyone on committee through Facebook or come up and ask us when you move in, we'll always be happy to help!
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 be happy to answer them for you; you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or join the freshers facebook group and send us a message.
I can't wait to meet you all in September!
Amie Woodyatt, Hall Chair
Freshers Subs £100
This is for first years living in Butler Court in 2018-19. This year we have decreased the price of Freshers Subs, giving you access to all of the things we do throughout the year with the added bonus of our huge Freshers Week Programme! To take part in Freshers you must pay this fee, as it will buy you a wristband which gets you into ALL of the events at the Union and queue jump for Butler nights! This one off payment also enables you to take part in events including punch parties, bbq's, welfare events and drastically decreases the amount of our winter and summer balls, as well as our end of year party which is free: Butler Day! Simply scroll down to the bottom of the page and select 'add to basket' next to 'Fresher Subs'.
Returners Subs £70
Hall subs are used for hall activities throughout the year (EXCLUDING FRESHERS FORTNIGHT) like punch parties, sport pitch hire, subsidies for our Summer and Winter Balls, Butler Day and many more tailored events that happen during your tenancy in Butler. This fee is for returners (2nd, 3rd, 4th years etc); if you decide not to pay your hall subs then you WILL NOT be able to take part in any events we put on. If you try to take part in our events having not paid your subs then we will STOP YOU FROM TAKING PART, so make sure you pay so that you can get involved and especially take advantage of the events we provide food...
