The communal hall is a large, open space used for pretty much anything and everything. Situated right at the entrance of Raffles Hall, the communal hall boasts a stage, projector and screen and is fully equipped with its own sound system. The large space before the stage is usually lined with dining tables during the semester. However, it also doubles as a space for performances, formal dinners, committee meetings, parties, and many other events.
It is most often filled with people during breakfast, dinner, and supper times on a daily basis. Residents have boisterous meals together, where they catch up with each other on the day’s goings on, and the sounds of clinking cutlery are often accompanied with peals of laughter and the undercurrent of conversation. There is never a dull moment in hall, even during meal times!
