Shave for a Cause!

The University Hall community proudly raised over $2,500 for The World’s Greatest Shave this year.

Humans of UniHall | Shailyn's Story

Thursday, 16 March 2017

I’m originally from One Arm Point Community, traditionally called Ardiyooloon, which has a population about 300, and is nestled by pristine beaches and ancient islands. My tribes are the Bardi Jawi, Mayala and Mangala of coastal and central Kimberley.

My sense of empowerment comes from the history of my home community.

Humans of UniHall | Son's Story

Thursday, 16 March 2017

Someone asked me “Why don’t you get an English name?” I answered “Don’t you know what Son stands for? Be smart, be original, be noble and be Son.”

I grew up in Saigon, Vietnam. The city which you can see motorbikes almost everywhere. The city which you can enjoy various types of food from different cultures without paying more than $10. The city which is always busy and crowded. The city I love the most. The city I called home. I never thought that I would leave this place.

Amok Island at University Hall

Amok Island at University Hall

Monday, 27 February 2017

Amok Island has captured elements of the diverse community at UniHall through a street art wall piece outside our standard premium rooms.

What was once just a space for residents to lock up their bikes is now an area for them to wander past and take in the intricate parts of the wall piece. It’s a great way to relax after a stressful day at classes.

Xander, Amok Island artist, describes his style as abstract and realistic at the same time. He uses the bare minimum in colour palette and geometric shapes to represent a subject.

Murray Giles Little MA, the forgotten one

Murray Giles Little MA, the forgotten one

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Murray Giles Little is a name that doesn’t readily come up in conversation or in print when scholars or historians refer to prominent educators in Western Australia. Nor, for that matter, is Mr. Little mentioned in the annals of The University of Western Australia (UWA), where he studied. Sometimes, even when a particular person rises through the ranks to become the Western Australian Director of Education between1940-50, he can slip through the cracks.
