Fergusson Hall is situated on spacious grounds with views out across the city. It consists of Keiller House and The Cottages. Keiller House is a beautiful two storey homestead with 44 bedrooms. The Cottages are four separate units that can accommodate up to 10 residents in each. If you prefer a quieter living environment, then The Cottages would be the ideal choice.
The Hall has a reputation for developing a strong community and family spirit among its residents.
Fergusson Hall is owned and operated by the Presbyterian Educational Purposes Trust, who appoint the Head of Hall. If you would like to book Fergusson Hall for a conference or accommodation during the summer season, please contact the team at Fergusson Hall directly.
International students must pay all accommodation fees in full. Domestic students can pay the semester or full year fee on a weekly basis by direct debit.
