Hughes Hall is a progressive College which values its egalitarian and inclusive culture.
The College has made a commitment to promote equality, value diversity and maintain an environment for study, work and living in which the rights and dignity of all its members are respected. Students, staff and Fellows come from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities and enjoy being in a location close to Mill Road with its cosmopolitan shops and restaurants. Hughes Hall is proud to celebrate Black History Month, Transgender Awareness Week, and LGBT History Month – now for the fifth year. The College works with the MCR equality officers to hold a themed Formal Hall for each, and a wide range of events are hosted by our community.
