Wright Robinson Hall is a hall of residence of The University of Manchester, very close to Manchester Piccadilly station in Manchester. It was a flagship hall of UMIST and became a University of Manchester hall when UMIST and Victoria University of Manchester merged into The University of Manchester.
In February 2008, a component of the Vimto statue on Granby Row was thrown down the South stairwell of the building, causing serious structural damage.
The hall has 14 floors (C to Q) accessible to students - there is no I floor. C Floor is the ground floor, D floor houses the laundry room and Q floor has only maintenance/service rooms. E to P floors are each a flat of 15 bedrooms, one 'Common Room Kitchen' and two bathrooms. This makes for 165 bedrooms. Room 8 on each floor is a 'supersingle' bedroom, about twice the size of the other bedrooms.
The hall offers 40 week p.a. contracts, allowing students to inhabit the rooms all year round except during summer. This costs £3,970 or £4,624 for the supersingle room.
