Hulme Hall is a university hall of residence in Victoria Park (Manchester, England), housing approximately 300 students[1] from the University of Manchester. The facilities are located in Rusholme roughly 1.5 miles south of Manchester city centre, and include a purpose-built lecture theatre with 300 seats (John Hartshorne Centre), the Old Dining Hall, the Library, the Chapel, the Senior Common Room and the Seminar Room. It is a Grade II listed building.[2] (It should not be confused with the historic Hulme Hall in Hulme, Manchester; it was sited on the right bank of the River Irwell but has been demolished.)

The hall is one of the oldest in Manchester: it was founded in association with Owens College.

Houldsworth Hall, part of the Hulme Hall complex of buildings, was constructed in 1907[3] (Edwardian), whereas most of the local buildings are Victorian, for example the Anglican parish church (St John Chrysostom)[4] which was built in 1874 - 1877. Local student attractions include the Whitworth Art Gallery and the Curry Mile on Wilmslow Road.

Houldsworth Hall was also the venue for the World Snooker Championships in both 1952 and 1954.
