Smiles, Convenience Store
We are very lucky at Hall to have our very own on-site convenience store. Complete with basic food, drinks, stationary and other essentials (as well as weekly deals) Smiles is very popular with residents. They accept card and cash. Smiles is run by Rehab Enterprises, which you can find out more about at the link below.
Oldham boasts many social spaces - including a TV lounge (known to showcase the All-Ireland Finals, Eurovision and The Late Late Toy Show), quiet reading spaces, games areas, bookable group-use facilities, music practice rooms, a welfare space, a sports hall, squash courts, a botany area and study areas at exam times.
To the left of Oldham you can find a Laundry room with 14 washing machines and 14 driers. A wash costs 4EURO, and a drier costs 1EURO. Washes take 40 minutes, and driers take around the same.
There is a certain amount of on-site parking for residents. It is quite strictly controlled so be careful! In order to receive a parking permit, a €50 fully refundable deposit must be left with the accommodation office – this will be returned once the permit is returned to the accommodation office when the resident leaves Hall. There is ample bicycle parking - however, we would recommend investing in a good lock as theft can happen.
