Tatham Hall, McLaughlin College's affiliated residence, is home to approximately 265 students in each academic year. A thirteen-storey high-rise, the building is divided into six 'houses' of roughly 45 students each, sharing kitchen and common room facilities. Accommodations are a mix of single and double rooms; about two thirds of residents are in single rooms. Co-ed and single-gender housing is available, and offered as an option in the residence application process.
Tatham Hall is part of the McLaughlin College Community. McLaughlin College is affiliated with the following programs: Sociology, Political Science, Global Political Studies, Criminology, Law & Society, Public Policy & Administration, Social Science and Work & Labour Studies. We encourage students with an interest in these disciplines to apply to live in Tatham Hall. However, residents in Tatham Hall come from a range of faculties and disciplines, which contributes to the interdisciplinary atmosphere of the residence. House and Residence Councils organize frequent programs, from movie nights to campus exploration, to trips around the city. The legendary spirit of Tatham students is the envy of York's other colleges.
The building is staffed by the Coordinator, Residence Life who is a full time, live-in professional, as well as six student Dons, who all ensure that Tatham residents feel a part of the residence community. Residence Life is a program of the department of Student Community and Leadership Development. Residence staff support the academic mandate of the University and McLaughlin College, as well as act a resource and positive role model for the residence. Like all of York's residences, Tatham Hall's entrance is monitored by 24/7 CCTV, and is monitored at night by student Porters and Residence Watch Officers. The building is named for Professor George Tatham, the founding Master of McLaughlin College.
Two floors of our residence constitute a "living and learning" themed community, whose residents have the opportunity to participate in enhanced activities related to the affiliated programs listed above, such as private meetings with senior government officials and professors, and visits to Parliament, Queen's Park and City Hall. (Students who wish to join the Tatham Hall themed community need to indicate this on their residence application.)
