Devonshire Hall, Leeds University Hall of Residence, Cumberland Road
Undated, View of Devonshire Hall, the first purpose built Hall of Residence for the students of Leeds University. The lease had expired on the previous Devonshire Hall, the old Wesleyan College. A site was found in Cumberland Road which included the Regent Court Residential Hotel and grounds for £20,000 in 1927. Local architects, J.C. Procter and F.L. Charlton designed the new hall in the grounds and it had features in common with a Tudor monastic building. 140 students and a warden transferred here in 1930. Nowadays, Devonshire Hall accommodates around 320 students in single and shared rooms and cluster flats.
