Allan Webb Hall

Welcome to Allan Webb Hall.


Allan Webb Koshuis heet u welkom.

Wamkelekile eAllan Webb.

It is without doubt the most beautiful Hall on campus, and on behalf of the Hall Committee, the students, and the staff of the Hall we would like to invite you to take a look around our website and sign our guestbook.

Not only is Allan Webb the smallest Hall at Rhodes University but we have the most amenities for our students. Situated on lovely grounds known as St Peter's, this part of the University was formerly the Grahamstown Training College. The four residences, built at the turn of the century, are named after British Cathedral Cities.

Canterbury House overlooks huge trees and sweeping lawns which are used for the annual graduation party and occasional lunchtime concerts presented by the Music Department. Canterbury House lies across the road from Winchester House. Canterbury Annexe is home to 32 students, which started life as a sub-division of Canterbury House. It houses 6 (six) double rooms as well as big single rooms, but unfortunately, they do not have wash basins. With only 32 students, it becomes a big family and home away from home. The Annexe is across the road from Canterbury House.  Truro House is small and charming, with only 22 rooms, all singles. Salisbury House is built around its own courtyard and overlooks the picturesque Makana Botanical Gardens. It is one of  Rhodes University's newly renovated residences. All five houses are within easy walking distance of the main campus, and share the rolling lawns of St Peter's with the departments of Law, Education, and Music and Musicology.

 The rooms in Winchester House, Canterbury House, Canterbury Annexe, Salisbury House, and Truro House are connected to the Residence Network, providing round-the-clock access to the Rhodes Network and the Internet.
