Equality & diversity

Connaught Hall aims to be a welcoming home for students from every continent; of every colour, ethnicity, and background; of every religion (as well as no religion) and culture; whether they are straight, gay, bisexual, or transgender; and regardless of age or disability.

Your Warden is responsible for ensuring that our Hall community is welcoming, tolerant, and respectful of diversity. Furthermore, as Clerk to the Club & Senior Treasurer of the Residents' Club, the Warden has a duty "to ensure that the Club is operated in such a way that promotes equal opportunities and without discrimination on the basis of age, race, sex, creed, disability, political belief, social class, or sexual orientation".

To help further these goals, the Warden established the Multicultural Students' Forum (MCSF) in September 2012. The objective of the MCSF are:

  • To encourage participation in Hall community life by international, overseas, and ethnic minority students (IOEMS).
  • To promote and facilitate the experience of British life and customs by IOEMS – based on the idea that if you come to London to study, we should help you make the most of your time here and experience London/UK/British life to the full.
  • To broaden the range of social and cultural events in Hall so that IOEMS can share their home cultures with other residents.

We are a diverse, multicultural Hall community at the centre of one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. We greatly value the contribution that international/overseas students — as well as home students from minority backgrounds — can make to our community.

We understand that moving away from home can often be time when students seek to find a new identity for themselves. This can sometimes cause both internal and external conflict around matters such as religion, cultural beliefs, politics, sexuality (including "coming out"), and other aspects of personal identity.

Your Warden is experienced in helping residents talk through these kinds of issues. Make an appointment or attend an open office session if you would like to discuss - in confidence - matters like this or any cases of harassment or discrimination.
