O'Rorke Hall

Just a stone’s throw from Queen Street, O'Rorke is home to 366 residents each year.

About the hall

O'Rorke Hall is our second largest hall of residence, offering comfortably furnished single rooms in a 'pod' style formation on each floor.

O'Rorke is a short walk to the centre of the city campus and main arterial routes through the city, making access to public transport quick and convenient.

The accommodation management team provides personal support throughout your stay and arranges social and recreational activities during the year.

The resident manager and resident advisors live on site, ensuring there is a duty person available 24 hours a day.
