Expanding the College’s student accommodation at Norham Gardens

Room G2 at 24 Norham Gardens

St Edmund Hall took ownership of 24 Norham Gardens, a spacious Victorian house spread over four floors, in the summer of 2015. The purchase was made possible thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor and the bequest of alumnus Mr William Asbrey (1949, Jurisprudence). Under previous owners, the house had gone through a vast array of different uses and the College took on the challenge of unravelling these over the following twelve months to ensure that all compliances were met in terms of its future use.
