Welcome to the official website of the Badock Hall Association (BHA).


Badock Hall turned 50 in the 2014/15 academic year and, in response to its growing history, increasing number of alumni and ongoing growth as a university hall of residence, the BHA was formed.


The BHA is tasked with bringing together every element of the Badock Hall community. Times are changing quickly, the hall environment is already vastly different to when the BHA was created in 2014 let alone when the hall was founded 50 years before.  The BHA serves to act as a connection between all branches of the community Badock has created. Have a look at the current Badock Hall prospectus for a snapshot into modern student life.


We have been extremely fortunate to have three prominent people agree to be the first Patrons of the Association: The Right Honourable the Lord Boateng (LLB 1976, Badock alumnus), Sir Stephen Laws KCB QC, (Badock Hall 1969, LLB 1972, LLD 2012) and former First Parliamentary Counsel and Mrs Mary Prior (MBE, Lord-Lieutenant of the City and County of Bristol and Pro Chancellor of the University).  These are honorary positions and are appointments for a five-year period.


Although things have largely been on pause due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we have still managed to host a largely successful Zoom-based collaborative ‘Alumni Weekend’ in the last year. We look forward to our regular events schedule continuing in a post-pandemic world, especially our drinks receptions in London and Bristol.


If you are not already a member of the BHA, we warmly invite you to join by completing this membership form or emailing the Badock Hall Association (badock-hall-association@bristol.ac.uk).  To be eligible, you need to have been resident at Badock Hall for a period of at least one academic year or have had a substantive attachment to the Hall for a period of at least one year.
