Welcome to Royce Hall 

 

 

  

Message from the Hall Chair

 

Hello Freshers!

My name is Filip and I am your Hall Chair for this upcoming year. Along with a committee made up of 16 passionate individuals, and our dedicated Warden Team, we strive to ensure that you get the most out of your Loughborough experience. Royce is situated in the heart of the Student Village and is a quick two-minute walk to the local shop and Accommodation Centre. It is also a five-minute walk to the Pilkington Library, lecture theatres, Students’ Union, Holywell Gym and other essential locations on campus. It is the ideal location!

Royce offers a wide range of opportunities throughout the year. Whether you’re interested in playing a variety of sports, getting involved in charity work or volunteering - Royce has it all. Royce is known for its sporting capabilities, excelling in sports like Rugby, Football, Netball and racket sports. This year alone, we have maintained our championship in badminton and football, while finishing high in other sports. Furthermore, our Action and Rag Reps continue to uphold our position as a well-established hall in committing to volunteering and charity work, while regularly updating the hall on possible fun projects held by the hall or the university.

Royce is a very sociable hall, hosting punch parties in the common room, block gatherings and other events on a weekly basis – it is the ideal way to meet other residents in different blocks and integrate into the Royce family. Futhermore, we offer the 'Social Pack' which guanrentees you a ticket to both the Winter and Summer Ball as well as our Fun Day, St. Fred's Day. We also host our own Rag event, the Royce 100, which is a 100 lap race around Royce in memory of a former Rag Rep Peter Holme. On top of that, as we are a catered hall (three meals a day, five times a week, not weekends), the dining hall remains a fantastic way for you to catch up with your mates from different courses and discuss evening plans.

All these events contribute to the ultimate and memborable experience in your first year. I hope that after reading this, you will be convinced that Royce is the right Hall to join. I look forward to meeting you all in September.
