Memorabilia for College Hall site to be unearthed in 50 years

Notes, relics and memorabilia commemorating a former University hall of residence will be buried in a time capsule at the College Hall site on Knighton Road to celebrate the site’s 40 year history and mark its transition into a state-of-the-art conference venue.

Professor Sir Robert Burgess, Vice-Chancellor of the University, and Steve Crawford, Centre Director, will bury the capsule at the opening of the University’s new College Court conference venue on Tuesday, 1 October - the first day of business for the new centre.

The capsule will contain a range of objects recovered from the former student halls during the £17.5 million redevelopment - including postcards, beer mats and an Action Man from the 1960s.

A plaque will be placed above the capsule, with instructions for the box to be opened after 50 years, in the year 2063.
