Pearson Court, of St Patrick's Hall

St Patrick's Hall, founded in 1908 by R. L. Pearson as a private hostel,[4] and taken over in 1909 by the then 'University College, Reading',[5] is the second oldest hall of residence at the University of Reading. Professor V. Mallinson, who later became warden of Whiteknights Hall, observed that Pearson was in many ways a model warden who truly cared about his students and thus Mallinson tried to emulate his approach at Whiteknights.[6] The hall consists of Pearson Court (built in 1913 and named after the first warden) and New Court (opened in 1960 but recently refurbished).

The hall is situated west of Whiteknights Park (the university's main campus) on Northcourt Avenue. It is located in the Reading East UK Parliament constituency (Church Ward).[7]

The hall motto is "facta non forma" which is Latin for "deeds not image", and the hall colour is dark green. The hall crest features two snakes encircling a flame and is engraved on the wall above the study room in Pearson Court.

The hall celebrates St Patrick's Day with a formal ball on or around the day.
