Details

Originally called Endcliffe House and owned by Henry Cadman, a Sheffield solicitor; the house was built in 1840 and subsequently extended in 1891 after being purchased by Sir Joseph Jonas. Jonas arrived in Britain in 1867 and became a British citizen in 1876, in which time he earned a reputation as a noted industrialist and philanthropist. On top of his contributions to many other local charities and institutions, Jonas was also a valued benefactor to the newly formed University of Sheffield. By achieving the post of Lord Mayor in 1904 as well as being rewarded with a knighthood, he had reached the pinnacle of local civic life. He was one of Sheffield’s leading figures at the turn of the twentieth century. A portrait of Sir Joseph Jonas now hangs in the University’s Mappin Hall.

The house was purchased from the trustees of the late Sir Joseph Jonas for the sum of £6000 in 1929, and in 1934 was opened as The University Hall for Woman. In 1959 it was renamed Halifax Hall after Lord Halifax, who at the time served as Chancellor of the University. Halifax Hall then became a home for students at the University of Sheffield for the next 50 years.

Halifax Hall now stands as a beautiful boutique hotel, located in the middle of a conservation area on the edge of the University of Sheffield’s Endcliffe Village, boasting 38 en-suite bedrooms including three suites and deluxe conferencing facilities.
