The Chancellor Hall

Chancellor Hall was named in honour of the first Chancellor of the University, Her Royal Highness Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, and was opened to University students in 1953. Since then, the Chancellor of the University has also been recognized as the patron of the Hall.  Although University students lived in Chancellor Hall from 1953, Chancellor did not become an official Hall of residence until September 1954.  In fact, from as early as 1952, student nurses, staff, nurses and nursing sisters of the University College Hospital of the West Indies resided in the structure of Chancellor Hall.  

Unofficially, Chancellor Hall began in 1953 when 35 residents (students) of Gibraltar Hall moved over to Chancellor Hall. These students, Gibraltarites, were previously housed in a group of huts which were occupied by refugees during the war years. These huts were collectively known as Gibraltar (Gib) Hall and were located on Gibraltar Road.

Gone are some of the light hearted pranks which characterized the Chancellor Hall history, culture and legacy. The indefinable factor though called the ‘Chancellor Spirit’ remains unchanged to this day.  The past should be admired but must never be an excuse for stagnation and a lack of impetus to be innovative and active.  Welcome to the home of the lions - Chancellor Hall.   Long live the Lions!!!

Chancellor stands brave and Tall, Conquering Lions all, irvine and taylor place, Fear the great Lions' face, With Bobo king of all, All shall fear Chancellor hall, Champs of today, As we were yesterday, yesterday, yesterday. Chancellor the Lions' den, Bobo we will defend, We are by the test, Clearly above the rest, To stop us there are none, Chancellorites will forward on, Still determined, As we were yesterday, yesterday, yesterday.
