In the early hours of 4 April 2019, a large fire broke out in the A Wing of University Hall requiring the evacuation of over 200 students. There were no serious injuries, although several students were treated for smoke inhalation. Immediately following the fire, the university rushed to find emergency housing for the residents affected. The renovation of the closed Clark Wing at St. Mark’s College and construction of the new ‘The Village’ housing precinct began, and provided replacement housing for all residents from the A and B Wings of University Hall.
