I’ve been involved with many of the meetings designing the new Norham villa, and can honestly say it’s looking like exactly the kind of space a student would thrive in. The entire design revolves around sustainability and light, open spaces where Teddy Hall students can not just work, but socialise and relax. Teddy Hall is unique in its embracing of college culture and a cohort that’s like a family, and I truly believe that the new Norham Building encompasses that entirely. I also know it’ll take away a lot of stress that students often feel when it comes from organising houses and renting from private landlords, and the contract means that it’ll be more manageable financially, which is always ideal when you’re on a student budget.
