One of the smallest of the 12 catered halls on University Park, Florence Boot is located near the west entrance and offers a large variety of rooms to suit everyone's needs. Unlike most other halls accommodation within Florence Boot isn’t divided into blocks, instead the hall consists of one large building making it incredibly sociable and friendly.
Florence Boot was the first hall of residence at Nottingham University and so naturally has the benefits of nice spacious rooms. Florence Boot Hall also has its own quad which is great for summer and creates great views from every window. The bar and JCR offers nice social areas for students to relax, play pool, watch television and make friends.
